New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has suggested that the next academic session be commenced on April 1, 2021.

Schools have not reopened in the country at one go. Some states have partially reopened schools, while a few have physical classes only for high school students. The central board has also advised that schools take steps to conduct examinations for class IX and XI students, and to identify learning gaps in students of those grades. Offline board examinations for class X and XII students are set to begin on May 4.

The letter stated: “For classes IX and XI also, schools should take steps to identify and remedy the learning gaps and thereafter, conduct examinations by strictly following COVID safety protocols as per Examination Bye-Laws. This will also help in identifying learning gaps which could be addressed by the schools in new academic session by having a bridge course specially designed to address learning gaps.”
