The education department of Bihar has decided to promote students of classes 1 to 8 without examinations. This decision has been taken because the government schools were closed for a long time due to Corona virus, due to which the students have suffered academic loss.
According to the department, about 1.66 crore students from class 1 to 8 are enrolled in all government schools across the state. Principal Secretary Sanjay Kumar said, “We have decided to hold catch-up classes for three months to make up for the academic loss. Students will be taught the fundamental subjects of the current syllabus so that they do not face any difficulty while studying in the next class. “
He said, “We had a conversation with the First Education Foundation last week. The bridge course will particularly benefit those students who could not attend online classes due to lack of television, smartphone and internet facility. Catch-up classes are likely to begin in mid-March. “
Meanwhile, the department is ready to conduct the annual examination for more than 13.17 lakh students enrolled in 9th grade from 26 February to 3 March.
“We have asked all district education officers to buy the latest OMR sheet by February 24 to conduct the examination. An official of Bihar School Examination Board said that the students will take practical examination from March 4.
In April last year, the education department promoted students of classes 1 to 9 and 11 without conducting the final exam due to the closure of the Kovid-19 trigger school.
