The Tripura government has decided to provisionally promote students of five, eight, nine and eleven standards to their next classes in the wake of the Covid-19 crisis.
The government decided to promote the students to their next classes due to disruption of the academic session because of Covid, education minister Ratan Lal Nath said on Friday.
“As the academic session in 2020-21 was disrupted due to the pandemic, we have decided to provisionally promote students studying in classes five, eight, nine and eleven to their next classes,” Nath said.
He said that the school authorities will evaluate these classes after reopening of schools as mark sheets are required for the students to get different scholarships including the post-metric scholarship.
The Tripura government’s decision comes days after the state announced to promote students of classes one, two, three, four, six and seven to their respective next classes.
There are a total of 51,827 students in class five, 52,659 in class eight, 53,176 in class nine and 30,082 students in class eleven in the state.
Tripura government would take a final call on holding class 10 and 12 board exams on June 14.
