Students of Class 1 to 8 may be promoted without any exam: Odisha Minister

BHUBANESWAR [Maha Media]: Odisha School and Mass Education Minister SR Dash Saturday said students from class-1 to Class-8 may be given a promotion to the next class without any examination as schools have remained closed for them since March 2020 in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The minister said a final decision in this regard will be taken by the government soon.

The classes for the students of Class-I to Class-8 will not reopen soon in view of the recent surge in COVID-19 cases in some states. He also said that the new academic session may not start in April this year.
