Meanwhile, teachers of government-run-schools said that the students have completed their syllabi as of now. “We have started community classes for the past one week in an open field and the students at large are turning up for the classes. However, most of the Elementary classes have not moved beyond the 30 percent of syllabi till now,” said one of the teachers.

“In online classes, maximum students were not having any connectivity; however after holding the community classes, it is compensating the academic losses,” he said.

The teachers also said that in order to hold the T-1 exams that comprise 60 marks, the students should have completed the syllabi of U-1 and U-2. However, only 25-30 percent syllabus would have been covered till date.
