As a result of the raging second wave of COVID-19, the government has decided to postpone the SSLC exams which were scheduled to begin in the state from June 21, 2021. The Education Minister, in an official statement announced that a revised schedule for the exam would be released once the second wave is curbed.
The Educational minister said that the decision was taken after holding discussions with the stakeholders while some did not want to conduct the examinations. The SSLC students will have to attend two examinations out of which one will be a language and the other would be multiple choice questions on science, math and social studies.
Earlier the government had decided to conduct the exams and the tentative schedules were also released for SSLC and 2nd PU. However, following the announcement of the Prime Minister on cancellation of the CBSE board examination for Class 10 and 12, the students under the State board demanded the same.
The prime minister had previously addressed the concern of the government towards the student’s health, considering which the state government has made this decision. Other states like Gujrath, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh have also cancelled the board examinations.
On June 1, The Educational minister had shared that the decision on examination would be announced soon and has come up with an alternative keeping the health and future of the students in mind.
A lot of states are on the verge to follow the same decision as to scrap the board examination for this year. Considering the present scenario, final decision on SSLC Board examination will be taken today
