BREAKING: Higher Secondary exams likely in first week of March in Assam,
GUWAHATI: The Assam Higher Secondary Education Council (AHSEC) has decided to conduct the Higher Secondary (HS) examination in the first week of March. Examinations for all three streams of Arts, Science and Commerce will be held at the same time.
However, the dates of the Higher Secondary exams were yet to be declared.
The council has also set up a committee to evaluate the ensuing examination process and its preparedness of the exam centres.
Sources said that several examination centres in the state might not be able to conduct the exams unless they meet with the required facilities and security.
Earlier, in view of the prevailing coronavirus situation, the AHSEC had reduced the Higher Secondary (HS) syllabus by 30 percent for the academic year 2020-21. The move was taken by the Council to ease the curriculum load on the students, due to the closure of academic institutions across the state.
Assam education minister Himanta Biswa Sarma had suggested the Council to either reduce the syllabus or provide maximum options in the question paper so that students don’t face difficulty if a portion of the syllabus has not been completed.
