New Delhi: Sudden rise of COVID-19 cases in the country, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has made an important announcement for students who have contracted COVID-19.
According to the CBSE circular, if a student has tested positive then they need not worry about the lab practical exams. Exams for such students will be postponed and can be done either in April or even after written exams are over.
As per the CBSE circular, such students should just be advised to take rest and be in isolation at home, they also said that if any candidate tests positive for COVID-19 and ‘is not in a position to appear in the practical exam’, the practices for that student can be held at a later date. Heads of at least two schools said that this decision will reassure parents and students. City schools said the numbers were again on the rise at a time when the Board practical exams had started.
Many schools in Kolkata have either started the Class XII board practical’s or will start soon amid rising Covid cases. Three city schools closed down for about a week because of two students and a teacher being tested COVID-19 positive. Earlier in the week, CBSE allowed students of classes 10, 12 who are appearing for the board exams, to change their exam centres for all exams.
