CBSE Class 1 to 9: After KV’s &State Boards, parents question CBSE for promotion of all

After many state board’s decision to promote all students of Classes 1 to 9, many parents have asked CBSE regarding the schools affiliated to the board. Here’s what CBSE has to say.

  • Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan yesterday shared its decision to promote all Classes I to IX students to the next class without examination due to COVID-19 Lockdown.
  • Many states like Maharashtra, Gujarat, Haryana, Delhi and now Puducherry, have also declared an ‘All Pass’ for students of Class 1 to9.
  • CBSE has decided to postpone the on-going Board Examinations 2020 on March 18 after an advisory from HRD Ministry.

Schools and examinations have been affected by the lockdowns due to Coronavirus. While the country has gone under a 21 day lockdown from today – March 25, almost all the schools in the country along with universities have been shut for over 2 weeks already. Many of the schools were either in the middle of their annual examination or about to begin. Considering the current situation and pandemic threat, many state boards along with Kendriya Vidyalaya’s have decided to promote all students of classes 1 to 9 to the next class sans examinations.

With the announcements, many parents have approached CBSE, asking about the decision to promote CBSE students to the next class as well. The board has, however responded that no decision has been taken by the CBSE in this regards. As to whether or not CBSE may take that step, experts are divided.

A few heads of schools have, however, already taken the decision independently to promote the students of classes 1 to 4. Some schools are promoting the students based on their cumulative yearly performance while many schools have already conducted the examinations and are compiling the results which would be sent on mail to the parents or through SMS.

As for the schools who had not started the annual examinations yet, the decision is moot and not been taken as yet. Experts believe, CBSE may not pass the order as most of the private schools have already started the process. Also, Kendriya Vidyalaya’s, which are also CBSE Schools run by the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan, have taken the autonomous decision to promote all students.

It is again reiterated that there is no decision as yet on results or promotion for all the students of clases 1 to 9 of CBSE affiliated schools. The CBSE Board Exam 2020 have now been deferred till April 15 as the country goes into a 21 day lockdown. Any update, however, once available, would be provided on this page.
