Class 10th and 12th CBSE Board students will appear for pending examinations in their own school, rather than the examination centers, said HRD Ministry today. The ministry is also planning to declare the results by the end of July as the evaluation process has already begun.
There are 3,000 designated evaluation centers. The teachers can collect the papers from evaluation center, take them home for evaluation and return the answer sheets to the evaluation centers. In order to ensure fast results, the ministry has announced that the teachers involved in evaluation will be exempted from administrative and academic work.
Human Resource Development minister Ramesh Pokhriyal said, “Efforts are being made to declare the result by July-end itself. Evaluation process has already begun for the board exams and will continue to be held simultaneously with pending exams.”
On being asked about ‘When will the schools re-open’, he replied “There are 33 crore students and including parents, it becomes 99 crore and all of these are curious about when will school reopen and how will these function. We have yet to decide on the re-opening dates but have asked NCERT to create a framework on how to re-open the education institutes. UGC is also creating a framework for higher education institutes. The health of students is our top priority.”
“The first stage is to provide online education. NCERT has in the meanwhile created an alternative framework to ensure a standardised, balanced, and quality education for students,” said while adding, “We are making all efforts to ensure that neither students have to miss their education nor would the quality deteriorate,” he added.
According to a statement by Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) students will appear for exam in their own schools and not the examination centres.
