One class 10 student requested that students should be promoted on the basis of internal assessment marks. The student added that online classes for class 11 have started and students are clueless about which class to attend class 10 or class 11. 'An average student can do one thing, either to study for 10 board or 11,' he added.

#EducationMinisterGoesLive #2sir, online classes for 11th have started too,putting us under enormous pressure. Should we study for class 10 boards exams? Or we should study in the online classes for class 11? An average student can do one thing,either to study for 10 board or 11.— Odin (@Odin59206787) May 1, 2020
