Hyderabad | 18th April 2021
Though Andhra Pradesh Education Minister Adimulapu Suresh has already announced the class 10 and intermediate (+2) exams in the state will be held as per the original schedule, Chief Minister Y S Jaganmohan Reddy today held a review meeting on the issue of postponing the class 10 exams, which are to be conducted in June.
The CM is likely to reveal his decision on the postponement of the class 10 exams soon.
Conducting the exams is especially challenging this year due to the ongoing pandemic. However, the state government has maintained that there is currently no need to push back the exam dates, and has said that it will only consider cancelling the exams if there is a substantial increase in the number of cases over the coming week.
It has also reassured the guardians of school students that all the necessary steps to conduct the exams safely are already being taken in exam centres across the state.
Reports suggest that decisions regarding other exams, like the intermediate and degree exams, will also be taken by the state government in a day or two.
The need for discussions on the cancellation of the exams has arisen following the pressure being exerted by various sections of society on the Jagan regime to cancel the same as many believe that exam halls may well become potent sites of Covid-19 transmission.
