Provisional admission for open school pupils

Chandigarh, July 31

The Punjab Government has decided to allow provisional admission to 31,022 open category candidates in Class XI in regular schools.

However, these students would have to take the examinations of Class X when the Covid-19 situation normalises, Education Minister Vijay Inder Singla said today.

He said the matriculation result of regular students was declared by the Punjab School Education Board (PSEB) on the basis of Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) but the result of open school students was upheld as these students were not covered under the CCE criteria.

“The open category candidates were in a dilemma as they were not getting admission in schools as regular students. After reviewing the situation, we have decided to provide them short-term relief. Now, they will be able to get admission in Class XI provisionally, subject to the condition that as and when things become normal, they will have to take the matriculation examinations,” Singla said. — TNS
