Amid the second Covid-19 wave, the West Bengal government, on Saturday, decided to postpone the state board exams for Class 10 and 12, which were scheduled for June, for an indefinite period. The decision came after the government announced a complete lockdown from Sunday till May 30 to contain the spread of coronavirus in the state.

Chief Secretary Alapan Bandyopadhyay has mentioned that a revised schedule for the board examination will be announced later.

"No secondary and higher secondary examinations will be held in June," he told reporters, as reported by PTI.

He further added that making arrangements for the Class 10 and Class 12 board exams in the middle of lockdown will be very difficult. The education department will soon hold a meeting with the authorities of the state boards to decide on the revised schedule.

The Madhyamik exams 2021 were set to begin on June 1, and Higher Secondary tests on June 15.
