Few days ago, CBSE decided to give an additional chance to Class 9th students who failed to attain the minimum 25 percent in cumulative assessments (SA - 1 & SA - 2) together.
CBSE has granted a breather for students who flunked in Class 9th examinations because of poor performance in their SA (summative assessments). A latest circular uploaded on the CBSE website stated that the students would get one more opportunity to perk up their scores of Summative Assessment by July & save themselves from year loss.
The 1st is the SA - 1 and SA - 2 together. If they fail in this, they can appear for IOP (Improvement of Performance) examination that translates into a 2nd chance. Now this special examination is the 3rd lifeline being proffered to failed students of class IX. In individual schools, the figures may vary stridently & some institutions may not have even one failure.
Some schools admitted, “This is certainly a boon for the students. Now they can complete & save one year." The new system was executed as standards were worsening because students were not taking Summative Assessments seriously & had become complacent. Due to accomplishment of Right to Education Act (RTE), all students had to be promoted till Class 8th, and 9th was the first class where screening could be done by the schools.
A principal of CBSE School said CBSE board was making it simple for their students with the change this year. "If a student fails two times, why would you go out of the system to give another chance? No one deserves 3 chances & you might as well give them passing score without an actual examination," she said.
