Coronavirus – Delhi Asks Centre To Pass Class 10, 12 Students Based On Internal Exams

New Delhi : With the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) not able to conduct nationwide exams amid the coronavirus crisis, the Delhi government on Tuesday urged the central government to promote Class 10 and 12 students based on internal exams.

Delhi has also requested for an at least 30 per cent reduction in course material for all classes and also reduced syllabus in JEE, NEET and other higher education examinations, Education Minister Manish Sisodia tweeted.

“I joined a discussion today with the Union Human Resource Development Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank ji and other education ministers of the country and made the following suggestions,” Mr Sisodia tweeted in Hindi.

“It will not be possible to conduct the remaining exams of CBSE 10th and 12th exams so children should be passed on the basis of internal exams as children of 9th and 11th have been passed,” he said.

“For the next year, the entire syllabus should be reduced by at least 30 per cent and the entrance examinations of JEE, NEET and other higher education institutions should also be taken on the basis of reduced syllabus,” he wrote.
