“The opportunity will be extended to students irrespective of whether their examinations have been completed and the exam results have been released or their exams have not been completed. The facility is to be extended irrespective of the number of subjects and attempts.” – CBSE said in a statement. So the opportunity will be extended to a student who has re-appeared before the notification was released.
The schools are given the option to conduct online, offline, or an innovative test, on the basis of which a student will be assessed and promoted for the next class. The schools have also been directed to provide sufficient time for exam preparation. “This one-time opportunity is being extended only in the current year in view of the unprecedented conditions of Covid-19. This benefit is a one time measure and will not be extended in the future.” – CBSE concluded.
