The Directorate Of Secondary & Higher Education (Maushi) has formulated a basic routine in a meeting with school-college heads on Tuesday. It is learned that it may be published on Mausi's website on Wednesday. The educational institution is opening from September 12. A basic routine has been created as to who will take the class and when. Following this, class lessons have to be conducted in all educational institutions across the country. Teachers applauded the basic class routine. Following this, they agreed to take the class.
As per the new class routine, 2021 SSC-HSC candidates will be taking four classes in two subjects from Saturday to Thursday in a week.

The teachers have agreed to this. Class teaching will be conducted following that. This is a beautiful and realistic routine.
"There was a kind of anxiety in Corona about how, when and for how long we would take classes," she said. "At present it is cut off. We need to start teaching in class with new challenges. It has to be done according to the hygiene rules."
It has been seen that the morning shift in school-college will start at 7:30 am and end at 11:40 pm and will start at 12:40 pm and continue till 4:40 pm.
