The Delhi government on Tuesday asked the central government to promote students of class 10 and 12 on the basis of internal assessment amid ongoing coronavirus crisis. It would help as the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) would not be able to carry out exams across the country due to the pandemic, Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister Manish Sisodia said in a meeting called by the Union Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal.
The students should be promoted on the basis of internal exams as the CBSE is not expected to conduct the remaining exams of class 10th and 12th, Manish Sisodia tweeted on Tuesday evening. The promotion may be conducted in the same way as for the students of standard 9th and 11th, he added. Manish Sisodia also appealed to the central government to reduce the syllabus for the coming academic year along with entrance examinations including JEE, NEET and other entrance examinations for higher education institutions.
