Chhattisgarh private schools have decided to organize the annual exams for students in the ninth and eleventh grade in offline mode this year. According to private schools in the state affiliated with the CBSE or the State Board, students receive a correct grade when exams are taken offline. According to the dates indicated in the official website CGBSE grade 9 and 11 exams will be held in March 2021.
Some schools have reportedly mentioned that the assessment of online exams is not done correctly and that many students also experience technical problems when taking the exams. School authorities believe that online tests cannot contain descriptive questions because downloading too many answer sheets becomes a problem for students taking the tests.
Public schools affiliated with the Chhattisgarh Board of Trustees are also likely to conduct annual exams for students in grades 9 and 11 offline. The exams are conducted by the schools and the questionnaires are provided by the respective schools. Public schools are expected to start teaching 9th and 11th grade students from the first week of April 2021, as the Chhattisgarh Council exams begin on April 15, 2021.
Many state private school administrations have confirmed that the curriculum for grades 9 and 11 is nearing completion and that the remaining parts of the schools are near completion as they reopened on February 15, 2021.
Schools in Chhattisgarh have reopened to students after being closed for nearly 11 months since March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and closure. The board also called for schools to reopen to follow state government guidelines and protocols to keep students safe.
