In a video message, school education minister Varsha Gaikwad, said, “Considering the current Covid-19 situation in the state, we have decided to promote all students of standard IX and XI to the next class. We will soon announce some programmes to ensure that the learning continues as these years are the basis for the standard X and XII board exams.”
All eyes now are on the government’s decision on the SSC and HSC board exams. Gaikwad said groups are demanding that the exam be postponed or conducted online. Several stakeholders have reached out to her demanding that the exam be held on schedule to ensure that their plans aren’t impacted since CBSE and CISCE are likely to conduct their exams as per schedule.
