Puducherry school exams cancelled, automatic promotion for students

PUDUCHERRY: The Puducherry government on Wednesday announced cancellation of all examinations for students of Standard 1-9 in the Union Territory as part of measures to contain the spread of COVID-I9. Director of School Education P T Rudra Goud said in a release that the students were also granted “automatic promotion to the next higher class” without exams.

He said with the lockdown now in force, it would not be feasible to conduct annual examinations and hence the final exams were cancelled and students were granted automatic promotion.

The government had already declared holiday for 21 days from Wednesday to all government offices except those engaged in essential services like health, water supply, electricity, milk supply among others.
