WBBSE Affiliated Schools To Promote Students Of Class VI to IX To Next Class

The West Bengal Board of Secondary Education (WBBSE) has decided to promote students of classes VI to IX to the next class without any annual examination in schools affiliated to the WBBSE due to the COVID-19 situation in the 2020 academic year. This will be applicable for all the students who are currently studying in state-run or state-aided schools in West Bengal.


In a letter to headmasters of the state-run and state-aided schools on December 7, WBBSE said for the 2020 academic session, students from class 6 to 9 will be promoted to the next class automatically without any annual exams till the pandemic situation prevailed.


There is no such thing as a phrase or advisory on the part of state authorities in regards to the doable date of reopening of colleges. Apart from the promotion of class 6 to 9 students to the next class for this academic session, WBBSE has also asked the schools to implement the rule stating that no selection tests will be held for class 10 (Madhyamik) candidates next year, in view of the pandemic.
