Imphal: Manipur education minister Sorokhaibam Rajen Singh on Thursday clarified that only registered students who could not submit their filled-up examination forms for Classes X, XI and XII exams for the academic session 2020-21 can submit their forms online.
During a press conference held at the office of the minister at Old Secretariat on Thursday, Singh said that there are some misunderstandings regarding the one-time special measure allowed to students who could not submit their examination forms due to COVID-19 pandemic to now submit their forms online.
The minister also clarified that unnecessary claims made by students and guardians regarding the matter should be stopped.
He said that some students who had registered themselves during the past few years but not in the current academic session will not be considered for promotion to a higher class. “One should get enrolled to their respective schools and to BOSEM or COHSEM for eligibility in promotion to the next class. Those who do not not fulfill the eligibility parameters cannot claim for promotion,” he added.
Singh said that Classes X, XI and XII exams of the state were cancelled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Modalities of marking for students have also been framed by an experts’ committee of the education department. The results of the exams are expected to be out on July 31.
“The authorities concerned, BOSEM and COHSEM, are prepared to release the results in time,” the minister added.
The chairmen and secretaries of BOSEM and COHSEM were also present during the press conference on Thursday.
