CBSE suggests offline recap sessions to bridge the learning gap for class IX, XI
Even as the CBSE has recommended the new academic session to begin from April 1, it has instructed the schools to identify and resolve the learning gaps before conducting class IX and XI exams.
The aim is to update the knowledge of the students long used to online classes and not compromise on their academic interests.

With most state governments reopening schools for classes IX-XII, now is the time for schools to start in-person classes to clarify the doubts and concepts. With Covid protocols firmly in place, the schools are equipped to conduct offline exams for classes IX and XI as per the state government and CBSE guidelines.

Parents question the need to mandate offline exams. The schools cite the CBSE order and say they cannot do anything about it. It made no sense at all when CBSE released a mail, stating, “In view of your concern, please note that CBSE conducts examinations for classes X and XII for students of affiliated schools. Class IX and XI examinations are not conducted by CBSE, not supervised by CBSE. Please take up the issue with the state/Union territory government where the school is situated.”
Covid-19 disrupted the normal school system and all this is just one phase of the repercussions
