States will then devise their options till Class 8 but will need to provide an opportunity for a “re-test“ for students who fail. The CBSE Class 10 board examination was scrapped in 2010 and replaced with the current continuous and comprehensive evaluation that provides for tests and grading through the year as a means to reduce pressure on students.

The researchers had hoped the technique would turn carbon dioxide into methanol, but ethanol came out instead.

Agriculture, for example, is a key priority for developing countries. Progress on these issues will be difficult but I think that with fresh thinking, open-mindedness, and a renewed spirit of flexibility, anything is possible.
