Complete exams by April 15, directs DEO Thursday, February 22, 2001
AHMEDABAD: The district education officer (DEO) has directed all local private and other primary schools to finish examinations by April 15, 2001.
In an official communiqu dashed off on Tuesday, the office has given strict directions that all schools should immediately draw up the examination schedule and put up the time-table on the school notice board within a week's time before February 27.
The notice comes at a time when speculations are rife that primary students might be given a mass promotion in wake of the disastrous quake taking its toll on school buildings and students alike. Some schools had also reportedly put notices to this effect saying that there will be no exams for students up to standard IV.
Quelling all doubts, the notice has clearly indicated that all exams be completed by April 15. Encouraging school to conduct early exams, the communiqu also gives a go-ahead to schools wishing to take exams as early as in March.
Schools have also been directed to submit a copy of the exam timetable to the DEO office before or on March 5.
