All the affiliated schools have been asked by the Central Board of Secondary Education, CBSE to give an opportunity for the students of class 9th and 11th who have failed this year, to take a school-based retest. This big one-time exemption is as advised by the Union HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal, in association with the unfortunate outbreak of the coronavirus and the related stress on students.

The students are to be informed beforehand on the conduct of the examination, and sufficient time has to be given before conducting the exam. All these guidelines are applicable to all the subjects for which the student has failed.


CBSE Results 2020: Decision Left On The School Authorities

With the immediate and unprecedented closure of the schools and educational institutions by March 16 and the consequences that followed, many schools had not been able to conduct the examinations for classes 9th and 11th.

Kendriya Vidyalayas, Navodaya Vidyalayas, State/UT Government Schools, Private Schools, schools located in India and abroad, are among them.

The promotion of the students of classes 9th and 11th was vested upon the respective schools by the board, and the schools had been instructed to promote the students on the basis of internal assessments, previous examinations, and performance.

CBSE, in view of the requests of the parents and students, as a one- time measure in an extraordinary situation, has decided that all the failed students of 9th and 11th will be provided with an opportunity to appear in a school-based test again. 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,” says the statement from the CBSE.

It is following many queries and requests from many students and parents, that the  Union HRD Minister has extended the opportunity to conduct a retest for the students of class 9th and 11th.

This was his second webinar in a month. The live webinar was attended by hundreds of thousands of students and parents.



In the wake of the ongoing nationwide lockdown, all the schools and colleges in the country have been closed since mid-March, and they are expected to reopen only after the situation normalizes. In such a situation, many parents and students were struggling with organizing their study plans to ensure that the learning process is not stopped.


In order to provide effective week-wise planning to the students for each subject, NCERT has prepared an alternative academic calendar. This calendar was released on Saturday, May 2nd, 2020, by Mr. Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank, HRD Minister.


This alternative Calendar must be followed by the students, teachers, and parents during the lockdown to cover the syllabus. The major motto behind releasing this new academic calendar is to ensure that the students remain busy during the lockdown and continue the learning process. This academic calendar is designed for secondary school students, i.e., those studying in class 9th and 10th.

It covers important subjects like Science, Social Science, English, Mathematics, Hindi, Urdu, and Sanskrit. Previously, on April 16th, the HRD Minister released an academic calendar for primary school students.


The HRD Minister announced the release of the alternative academic Calendar on Twitter for the secondary school students and tweeted that, “My dear Secondary School students, I am releasing Alternative Academic Calendar today, for your benefit. During the lockdown period, you can use this calendar for week-wise planning, with reference to theme/chapter taken from syllabus or textbook.”


The HRD minister also asked the students and teachers to follow this calendar and learn at home using available alternatives like television, radio, SMS, or social media. Teachers have been encouraged to ensure timely interventions by directly contacting the students and helping them with their doubts and queries.


The guidelines specified in the academic calendar for teachers, students, and parents read that, “Schools, Colleges, and Universities have been closed. Students are confined to their homes, and so are teachers and parents. Teacher educators, teachers, and parents need to find ways to deal with this unprecedented situation arising out of the lockdown in order to engage students meaningfully through educational activities at home.


While we are putting in all efforts to flatten the epidemic curve, learning can continue at home too, and the learning curve of children must continue to move upwards. How should this be done? The first thought would perhaps be homework or home assignments.


However, the concept of homework is that of a task done individually; moreover, it carries with it the pressure of completion rather than that of joyful learning. Further, as educationists, we prefer not to recommend homework over a long duration for very young children. We have to, therefore, seek alternative methods.”
