Goa Board Announces Dates for SSC, HSSC Examinations
Panaji: As Goa remains in the green zone, the state government has given permission for holding exams for pending papers of Class 12 and for all subjects of Class 10 later this month when the current phase of lockdown ends.
The Goa Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education said on Wednesday that these exams, stalled due to the COVID-19 outbreak, will be held from May 20 onwards. A detailed time table is expected to be released soon
Board chairman Ramakrishna Samant said that HSSC (Class 12) examinations will be held from May 20 to May 22 (for two pending papers), while the SSC (Class 10) exams for all papers will be held from May 21 onwards. This decision is only applicable for schools affiliated to state boards. For Goa-based schools affiliated to CBSE or CISCE, the rule does not apply.
Earlier this week, Chief Minister Pramod Sawant had said HSSC and SSC examinations would be held after the third phase of the coronavirus-enforced lockdown ends on May 17.
