Maharashtra Education Minister Varsha Gaikwad today announced postponement of SSC and HSC exams due to spike in Covid-19 cases. In a series of tweets, she said, “Given the current Covid-19 situation, we’ve postponed the state board exams.” Meanwhile, the entrance exams for professional courses and class 12 board exams will be held by May end, while class 10 exams will be held in June. However, final dates are still to be worked out. “We’re closely monitoring the health situation. Fresh dates for these exams will be announced accordingly,” she tweeted.

The decision was taken at a meeting with CM Uddhav Thackeray. Gaikwad said, “The CM expressed concerns about students health amidst rise in Covid cases in state. Therefore, exams scheduled this month April have been postponed.”

Gaikwad further said the decision is the “outcome of consultations with various stakeholders — students, teachers, parents, elected representatives from across parties, academicians and tech giants.” She said 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,” she said.
