The students of SSC-I and HSSC-I, who had not appeared in board exams have been promoted to the next classes without awarding marks.

According to the notification, a 3 percent increase will be made in their grade 9 and 11 results, based on their marks in Matric and Inter exams next year. However, they won’t have to appear in a composite exam in 2021.

SSC-II and HSSC-II

The students of 10th and 12th will be promoted to the next classes based on their performances in the previous ones. Only the students with satisfactory performance last year will earn a promotion. Students who obtained only passing marks the past year won’t get extra marks this year. To calculate Matric and Inter exams, a three percent increment in the previous year’s results will be made.
