Maharashtra Govt postpones state board exams for class 10, 12

 

In the wake of the current COVID situation in Maharashtra, the State Government has postponed state board exams for class 10th and 12th, School Education Minister Varsha Gaikwad informed.

Keeping in mind the schedule of entrance exams for professional courses, class 12th exams will be held by end of May, while 10th standard exams will be in June. "We're closely monitoring the health situation. Fresh dates for these exams will be announced accordingly," she stated.

The decision is the outcome of consultations with various stakeholders-students, teachers, parents, elected representatives from across parties, academicians and tech giants- in the wake of rising coronavirus cases.

During the consultations, various alternative assessment options were evaluated keeping the health, well-being and future of our students in mind. Postponing exams seemed to be the most pragmatic solution, the Minister said.

We'll also be writing to the CBSE, ICSE, IB, Cambridge boards, requesting them to reconsider their exams dates, Ms Gaikwad added.
