Gerry Arathoon, chief govt and secretary, CISCE, instructed indianexpress.com, “We have not devised any concrete plan yet. Though offline board exams have been cancelled, students underwent various assessment throughout the academic session. We have only asked the schools to collect and compile all the data. Once we receive all the data from all the schools, then only we will be able to devise an evaluation methodology.”
Arathoon additional added that the round was despatched to the schools as a confidential doc however the data has been leaked. “There have been news reports that students of class 10 will be evaluated based on class 9, 10 marks but it is only a speculation. It is only feeding incomplete information to the students and confusing them. Once we are ready with the final evaluation strategy, we will release it to public like the CBSE did,” he stated.
