Chandigarh, September 11

The Chandigarh Education Department is planning to conduct the Class XI compartment exams before Class IX.

Yesterday, the schools were asked to update the department about the preferred mode — online or offline — for conducting the Class IX, XI compartment exams. The schools have been asked to send details on the number of students opting for online compartment exam, those opting for the offline mode and also those who opt not to take compartment exams and want to repeat the previous class. The schools have been asked to submit the information by September 13.

The department has asked the schools to make sure that the students opting for online examination must have a good connectivity and a device such as smart phone or laptop at home.

Rubinderjit Brar, Director, School Education, said: "We are considering conducting compartment exams for Class XI after taking consent from parents. We will consider conducting the compartment exams for Class IX only after the Class XI exams are conducted successfully."

Meanwhile, the Education Department released a statement on Friday stating that: "All schools of the UT have prepared an individual Google form to seek consent from parents regarding reopening of schools. Parents may also respond through a WhatsApp message or text message so that the final list of students interested in coming to the schools can be compiled and arrangements can be made accordingly."

According to the Centre's guidelines, students from Classes IX to XII may be permitted visiting schools on a voluntary basis for taking guidance from their teachers, subject to the consent of their parents/guardians.
