LUCKNOW: Amid the shut down of all educational institutions in Uttar Pradesh due to coronavirus scare, the Yogi Adityanath government has decided to promote all students till class eighth without any examinations.
Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma, who takes care of the education field, said that the step was taken after keeping in mind the closure of schools. However, "The students will be promoted on the basis of the performance all year round," Sharma said.
The UP government has also postponed the evaluation of answer sheets for the intermediate examinations and high school 2020 till 2nd April. They took the decision after groups of teachers remained away from evaluation centers due to the fast-spreading pandemic COVID-19.
This postponement of the evaluation process will now result in delay in the announcement of the performance by the students of intermediate and high schools.
