Their exams will be based on the online syllabus taught
The government has refused to give mass promotions in primary schools.  Reports for mass promotions came in the media that primary schools in the state have not yet started physically amidst the Corona riots.  However, the state government clarified that it had no plans to give mass promotions to students due to the epidemic.  State Education Minister Chudasama said, "Examinations will be held before promoting students in the next academic class."
 He further said, 'Std.  Students of 1st to 8th and 9th as well as 11th standard will be examined and their examinations will be based on the online syllabus taught by the schools.  "If the entire syllabus could not be taught online due to the Koro epidemic, the syllabus will be taken on the basis of the number of syllabi taught to the students," Chudasama told our correspondent Times of India.

 "All the options for taking the exam are being considered," he said.
 The most suitable option will be considered.  One option is to give the students a question paper at home and have it checked by the teachers.  Another option is to have the student called to a very limited number of batch wise schools and take their exams there.

While the third option is online exam.  Which is the least likely option as students in rural areas have very limited smartphone and computer facility through which they can take the exam online.  

There will be a high-level meeting on how to conduct the exams in which each party will have its say.  On the basis of which the most acceptable option will be adopted.

 Bharat Gajipara, president of the Gujarat Self-Financed School Management Association, said the exams must be taken to make what is taught online meaningful. "If students are given mass promotions, then the credibility of online education will be questioned," he said.
 On behalf of the parents of the students, the All Gujarat Board of Guardians demanded that mass promotion be given to the students as the schools were physically closed during the core period.  He argued that it would not be appropriate to take the exam as online learning was very limited in rural areas.  While the government believes that all options should be considered before making any decision.

School management, on the other hand, has increased pressure on the state government to reopen schools as many parents have refused to pay fees as the schools are not physically open.  The school trustees said, "All parents will be encouraged to pay fees if schools start.  Corona has caused a lot of damage to schools.
