However, these students will need to take Class X exams when the Covid 19 situation normalizes.
Punjab Minister of School Education, Vijay Inder Singla, said regular students’ enrollment results had been released by the Punjab School Education Board (PSEB) based on a continuous comprehensive assessment (CCE), but results from open school students were held back as this is not the case with these students covered under CCE criteria.
“Candidates in the open category were faced with a dilemma of not being admitted to school as regular students. After reviewing the situation, we decided to give them a short-term relief. Now they can be admitted in 10 + 1 provisionally, on the condition that if things become normal, they will have to pass the matriculation exams, “said Singla.
The minister said the government had also decided to declare the result of last year’s additional student review based on that year’s CCE.
He said these students should appear in a subject as an additional exam this year, but they couldn’t take it because of the Covid 19 pandemic.
Singla said the education department had not yet completed the open student exam sheet.
