As per the Board’s notice on May 13, the opportunity is to be extended to all the students even if they were given this opportunity earlier.
"CBSE because of unprecedented situation, intimated its decision vide Notification No. CBSE/CE/2020 dated 13.5.2020 that all the failed students of 9th and 11th be provided an opportunity in all subjects where students have failed. It was also reiterated that this exemption is to be extended to all the students even if they have been given this opportunity earlier to this notification also," as per official CBSE notification.
"All schools are hereby informed that the Hon’ble High Court of Delhi has, during the hearings, not quashed the above said Notification, hence all are requested to abide by the directions contained therein without being misled. Accordingly, schools can conduct online/offline/innovative tests and may decide promotion on the basis of the test conducted," instructed by CBSE through notification.
