Mumbai : In order to clamp down on schools deliberately failing their Class IX students to get 100 per cent pass results in the Class X board exams, the State education department has asked schools to ensure that all Class IX students reach Class X.
Schools have also been asked to conduct an additional exam in the first week of June for students who fail Class IX so that they don’t miss out on an academic year. However, if the student fails again, then he or she should be declared as failed and made to repeat Class IX.
In a government resolution (GR), the State government also warned schools against holding back students in Class IX. Apart from complaints from the teaching community during meetings, the government also found that a large number of Class IX students were not reaching Class X in some schools.
