Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Board has directed all the schools to hold re-examination for 9th and 11th Class students who failed earlier. The board has issued a directive to all the schools to provide a re-examination option to all the students from 9th and 11th Class who have failed in the earlier assessments.
As per reports, the board has issued the directions after receiving complaints from students and their parents about the same. The board, in its directive said that “some schools are not complying with CBSE’s decision and not allowing another opportunity to pass exams to failed students of class 9 and 11.”
Many schools have decided not to offer the re-examination option to students as the matter is currently being contested under a case in the Delhi High Court.
However, board through its notification has reminded students that Delhi HC has not quashed its May 13 notification and has asked schools to abide by its direction without being misled.
The board has also reiterated its stand on the type and format for the re-examination for students who have failed in Class 9 and Class 11. However, the board has requested students to provide students ample time to prepare themselves for the re-exam before holding the test.
