Education boards have decided that school authorities should hold assessments to graduate eighth-grade students to the next grade and there should be no scope for promotion without examinations.

They also said that assessments can be done through physical exams, online tests, online classes, TV education, or through students' continuous assessment based on how much of the syllabi were covered before the closure of schools.

The boards took this decision as the government cancelled this year's Junior School Certificate (JSC) and equivalent exams for class VIII students in late August due to the Covid-19 situation.
