The Ministry of Human Resource Development (HRD) has cancelled the board exams of National Institute of Open School (NIOS). The ministry tweeted in this regard.
“Keeping in view the health of the learners, #NIOS public #exams scheduled to be held in July 2020 now stand cancelled. The results will be declared based on the assessment scheme finalized by the competent committee.”
The board also announced that it shall offer an option for the students to write the exam if they are not satisfied with the scores. These exams shall take place when the situation is brought under control and that the dates will be announced later. This decision has been taken due to the on-going coronavirus pandemic.
The strategy adopted by the board says that the average marks obtained in the best three performed subjects will be awarded to the pending papers which could not be held. This is a one-time judgment and that the results shall be published soon.
For those students who have passed in three subjects, the average score will be calculated based on best of two. Those who have past performance in one or two subjects, their theory performance will be calculated based on average performance in theory of last three public examinations.
As per the official notice, the students who appear for the first time and their tutor-marked assignments (TMA) or practical marks are available, the evaluation will be based on the available TMA or practical marks. This will be printed along the theory marks.
The exams have been rescheduling since March 24 to July 17. However, due to increasing covid pandemic, the exams have been cancelled.
