Due to the pandemic, the board exams of many states were cancelled.
The West Bengal Council of Higher Secondary Education (WBCHSE) has declared that all the candidates who appeared for the Class 12 exam have passed this year. This decision comes after the failed students started agitation in various districts. They blocked roads with burning tires, vandalized their schools, and gheraoed the teachers.
Results of the class 12 board exams, in the state, were declared on July 22. Out of the 819,000 students enrolled for the exams, 97.69% had initially passed it.
Later, following students’ protests, another 18,000 were declared successful. The students were asked to get in touch with their respective schools for a review. On Monday, the council said all students had passed.
“Ours is a humanitarian government. Around 97% of candidates had initially passed. Those who were unsuccessful have been allowed to pass after review,” said Mahua Das, president of WBCHSE.
This year, both the Class 10, and 12 exams were cancelled because of the prevailing Covid-19 situation. Students scheduled to appear for the Class 12 board exams were evaluated on the basis of their Class 10 results, marks in Class 11 annual exams, and marks of their projects and practicals in Class 12.
