GOA: Sawant had said that all students would be promoted to the higher class, the board circular states that only those eligible for the supplementary exams would be promoted.
“I am directed to inform that supplementary examination for the academic year 2019-20 for Class IX and XI stand cancelled. All students who were eligible for supplementary exams for the academic year 2019-20 shall be promoted to higher class (X or XII),” states the board circular.
But after Sawant had announced cancellation of the supplementary exams, many teachers had raised objections to the decision to promote all students to the higher class.
Teachers had said that this would lead to confusion as some students are especially weak. But as per the Goa Board circular, now only those who have failed in one or two subjects will be promoted to the higher class.
