Schools in the state of Telangana have been closed since mid-March due to the increasing threat of the Coronavirus Pandemic. While the students have been asked to stay safely at their homes during these trying times, their academic future has been facing a lot of uncertainties.


With the current academic session already starting, a decision regarding promoting the students to the next class had to be taken. Finally, the state government has decided to promote all the students from 1st class to 9th class to the next grade without any exception.


The statement issued by Chief Minister KCR Rao while interacting with the media read that, “The parents of students from class 1-9 need not worry about their exams. Today Cabinet has decided that all the students from Classes 1 to 9 of both public and private schools will be promoted to the next class.”


Telangana Exam Results 2020: Recommendation from the State Education Department

The decision to promote all class 1st to 9th students was initially taken in the meeting of the state cabinet, which in turn took place after the Prime Minister interacted with the Chief Ministers of different states regarding the coronavirus and lockdown situation in the country.


Though, the official announcement has been made just now after the Telangana School Education Department conveyed to the state government that presently there is no detention system for students of class 1st to 9th in the state.


As there is no detention system in place, it is not mandatory to conduct the examinations, and students will be promoted to the next class for the academic year 2020-21. As the summative exams for the academic year 2019-20 could not be completed, the decision had to be taken by the government.


Telangana Exam Results 2020: Government Notifies The Decision To Promote The Students

Accepting the recommendations of the state education departments, the government issued an order which stated that, “The government, after careful examination of the matter and keeping in view hardship caused due to COVID-19 pandemic, hereby decide to cancel the Summative Assessment-II Examinations for the Classes I to IX and order to promote all the students of Classes I to IX studying in Government, Aided and Private Unaided Schools during the Academic Year, 2019-20, to next higher Classes in the Academic Year, 2020-21.”


Moreover, the state government had instructed all private unaided recognized schools to not increase any kind of fees for the academic year 2020-21. They were instructed to charge only the tuition fee on a monthly basis.


These guidelines were applicable to all schools affiliated to CBSE, ICSE, State Board, or any other international boards. These orders will stay in effect until further instructions from the state government.



School Education Department of Maharashtra has directed all the schools of the respective Zila Parishads as well as the primary and secondary education officers to immediately declare the Maharashtra Result 2020. This notification pertains to the students of classes 1st to 9th as well as class 11th. As per the announcement, the final results can be declared on the official websites of the respective schools or can be conveyed to the parents or students through their registered mobile phones.


The exercise to declare Maharashtra Result 2020 immediately is being undertaken to get the new academic session underway immediately. Due to the nationwide lockdown due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the session has already been delayed significantly.


Request To Review The Decision: Brihanmumbai Association of Heads of Secondary And Higher Secondary Schools


While the state’s school education department has instructed the concerned officials and schools to declare the Maharashtra Results 2020, a request to review the aforementioned decision has been submitted by the Brihanmumbai Association of Heads of Secondary and Higher Secondary Schools. According to the representation submitted by the association, it is not possible for all schools to declare the results immediately.


The reason given by them is that due to the nationwide lockdown, the teachers can not come to the school to mark the answer sheets, which are presently stored in the school premises. The president of the association expressed the apprehension that as the lockdown is in place, the teachers can be mistreated by the police personnel if they try to travel to the schools.


Various steps being taken by the Maharashtra Government


The state government of Maharashtra is taking various steps to mitigate the effects of the nationwide lockdown on students. Earlier, the state department had announced that students from class 1st to 8th and class 11th to be promoted without exams as the lockdown might be extended even further, and already a lot of time has been wasted from the present academic session.


Moreover, the school education minister, Varsha Gaikwad, has requested that the evaluation of class 10th examination papers in low-risk areas to be completed as soon as possible. But it was not possible to do so as the answer sheets had not reached the exam centers.


Arrangements are being made to ensure that answer sheets reach the examination centers soon so that the evaluation process can commence for declaration of Maharashtra Result 2020.


The state government has also announced that it will start airing educational programs for students throughout the state with the help of television and radio programs. This initiative will help students with no or poor access to the internet and will help them continue with their studies.



Schools in Delhi have been closed since mid-March to control the spread of Coronavirus infection amongst the students. But this has put the academic future of the students in a quandary as not only are the final examinations pending for certain subjects; new academic session might not start at least till July 2020. As a result, the schools have been looking for alternate arrangements to help the students with continuing their studies.


Delhi Education: Online Classes & Study Materials To EVS Students

Online classes have been one such endeavor that aims to ensure that education does not stop. But students belonging to the Economically Weaker Section (EWS), Children with Special Needs (CWSN), and Disadvantaged Group (DG) have been unable to access the online learning resources and are suffering due to it.


Taking cognizance of the matter, the Delhi Government has issued instructions to all private unaided schools operating in Delhi to provide the children from the above-mentioned categories with the necessary study material and online classes at the earliest. As of now, no special arrangements have been made by the private unaided schools in Delhi to assist the students enrolled under these sections.


The notice issued by the Directorate of Education states that “All the Private Unaided Recognized Schools providing online learning material or classes to the students are hereby directed to ensure that online classes or learning material are also provided to the students admitted under EWS, DG, CWSN category.”


The notice issued by the Directorate of Education further added that “In no case, any EWS, DG, CWSN category student shall be deprived of providing online classes or learning material.” Moreover, the notice specified that  “Schools shall ensure the same (access to online classes) in a similar manner as being provided to General category students.” The said notice was issued on 29th April 2020 and instructed the schools to take the necessary actions immediately.


On the other hand, Delhi Government has asked the Central Government to cancel the CBSE Board Exams for Class 10th and 12th students and have asked them to be assessed based on their performance in the internal assessment.


Ever since the closure of schools in Delhi since 16th March 2020, parents and students have been facing significant inconvenience due to the coronavirus lockdown. Schools have been looking for alternate modes of teaching, and online classes have become the new normal. But students form specific sections were facing problems as no particular arrangements had been made for them.


Now that the guidelines have been issued from the Delhi Government, it can be expected that the students from Economically Weaker Section (EWS), Children with Special Needs (CWSN), and Disadvantaged Group (DG) will also be able to continue their studies without any hassles.
