The Delhi Government Cancels Exams for Classes 9 and 11
Delhi Government cancels class 9 and 11 annual exams. However, the national capital had started to unlock and is seeing a decline in daily cases. Even though the situation is getting better, it is always good to stay on the safer side. Amid the rising COVID-19 cases, the government has come to this conclusion. Earlier, the central government had canceled the CBSE class 10 and 12 board examinations.
Kindergarten to Class 6 Grade Students Promoted Earlier
The Delhi government had promoted the students of kindergarten to class 6 on a no-detention policy basis. Amid the rising Covid scenario in April, the government had postponed class 9 and 11 exams. However, after 2 months, they finally canceled the exams. The students and their guardians were extremely anxious to know about their promotion strategy. Meanwhile, Delhi Deputy CM, Manish Sisodia announced the strategy on Thursday.
What is the Promotion Strategy for Class 9 and 11 Students?
The students will not give their class 9 and 11 annual exams. So, how will they get promoted to the next grade? The students will get promotions based on their mid-term examinations. Most probably, all the schools had conducted an online mid-semester exam for the students. Henceforth, they will get their promotion on that exam’s basis. In case, if any private school has conducted an online annual exam; they can promote their students on that basis. There are some schools that have conducted neither a mid-term exam nor an annual exam. Sisodia announced that such schools can promote the students on the basis of their best marks in two subjects. The Delhi government announced the news in a press conference on Thursday.
How can Children Check their Results?
The Delhi government has strictly announced not to conduct any physical exams. If the schools have missed any exam and want to reschedule it; they’ll have to do it online. Moreover, those students who haven’t qualified will get another chance. Sisodia announced that the government will declare the results for classes 9 and 11 on June 22. Therefore, students can check their results on the website. Moreover, they will receive an SMS regarding the results. Nobody has to go to school to check their results.
Delhi Government Announces the Admission Process for the New Session
The Delhi government also announced the new session’s admission criteria. Schools will conduct the admissions in an online mode. The application process will begin on June 11 and end on June 30. Anyone who wants admission to government schools can apply for the same. Phase 2 admissions will begin on July 23 and end on August 30.
