The CBSE has the schools to hold the exam for those students who failed in classes 9 and 11. The board has left to the schools to decide whether to have an online or an offline mode of exam.
The CBSE notified that, “Schools are being misled stating that till the time Rukmini Devi Public School versus CBSE filed in High Court of Delhi is not disposed of there is no need of complying the notification by schools”.
Initially, the CBSE has decided to promote the 1 to 8 class students, whereas the students of class 9 and 11 will be promoted based on their internal assessments. Even if the student fails, he/she will be given a fair chance to rewrite the exam again.
In a recent notice, the Supreme Court cancelled the class 10 and 12 exams. The board said that it shall assess the students with other parameters. The results shall be declared by July 15. The CBSE also mentioned that it shall introduce a new subject called applied mathematics for class 11 and 12 students. This subject will cover the mathematics knowledge in the field of business, economics, and social science.
As part of skill courses, Artificial Intelligence (AI), design thinking, physical activity trainer, etc. will too be introduced. These will be available for class 11 and forward. Presently CBSE offers 17 skill subjects at the secondary level and 37 skill subjects at senior secondary level.
