After the state government announced cancellation of class X examinations due to surge in covid-19 cases for the 2021 academic session, the Board of Secondary Education (BSE) has decided to evaluate the students on the basis of the marks they secured in class IX and X. “Most mentor schools have already sent the marks of students to the board for calculation,” official sources said.
As many as 2766 schools have been selected as mentor schools to which neighbourhood schools have been attached. Around six lakh students have registered for the class X board examination for 2021 academic year. Every year the class X board exams are declared by Mid-June.
The minister further said that preparation is over for starting classes though live streaming in YouTube channel from June 17. “We are starting YouTube classes with class IX and X initially but in the next few days are planning to start YouTube classes for all primary, secondary and higher secondary classes as well. As there is uncertainty over reopening of schools in near future in the wake of a likely third wave in which children are likely to be infected more and government is also making preparations like paediatric beds and training, the YouTube classes will be quite helpful for students,” Dash mentioned.
Dash said a meeting of all District Education Officers (DEO) of 30 districts is scheduled to be held on June 18, in which the next course of action regarding the YouTube classes will be discussed.
