CBSE relaxes norms for children of martyred Pulwama jawans
Children of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawans, who were martyred during the deadly terrorist attack in Pulwama, have been given certain relaxations for their 10th and 12th board exams by the Central Bureau of Secondary Education (CBSE). The relaxations were announced on Wednesday and are applicable for the children of military and paramilitary personnel fighting terrorism and left-wing extremism. Here's more.
CBSE's controller of examination, Sanyam Bhardwaj, announced, "If they have missed their practical examination, the same would be conducted as per their convenience within April 10 by their school. If they wish to appear in any offered subject later, they'll be permitted to do so." Students will also be given the choice to change their examination center in the same city or another one.
In Delhi, the Directorate of Education (DoE) has announced that the children of slain CRPF jawans will be allowed to reappear for compartment examinations if they are unable to appear in the ongoing annual exams this year. The compartment examinations will be held in April and May. However, only students studying in DoE's government schools will be eligible for the change.
Saroj Sain, the additional director (exams), in a circular, said, "The heads of government schools are directed to prepare the list of the students who lost their progenitor in the attack and are unable to appear in the ongoing annual examination."
