Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Wednesday announced that all failed students of class 9th and class 11th would be provided with an opportunity to appear in a school-based test again.

“The test can be taken in all subjects in which students have failed. Before holding the test, the schools will give sufficient time to the students to prepare,” said a circular issued by CBSE.

This one-time opportunity is being extended only in the current year because of the unprecedented conditions of Covid-19. It is a one-time measure and will not be extended in future, it added.

Opportunities will be extended to the students irrespective of whether their examinations have been completed, and exam results have been released, or their exams have not been completed. This facility is to be extended irrespective of the number of subjects and attempts.

Earlier, Human Resource Development Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank has announced that the remaining Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) exams of class X and XII will be conducted between July 1 to July 15.

On April 1, CBSE had announced that it would conduct examinations of 29 major papers, not all 41 pending papers of Classes X and XII.
