Guwahati: Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has made an announcement stating that there will be no board exams for class 10 students from the next year in 2024.
The decision will be implemented from the academic year 2024. Assam government will develop a single new Assam Educational Board.
The exams will conduct at school level instead, Sarma said.
The move has been taken in line with the New Educational Policy, NEP.
As per official, “Matric exams will be held only at the school level. This is being done as per the New Education Policy. A new board will also come up soon. But the employees employed for SEBA will not lose their job.”
Meanwhile, the Board of Secondary Education, Assam (SEBA) and Assam Higher Secondary Education Council (AHSEC), which conduct the Class 10 and Class 12 exams will now be combined together, official stated.
CM Sarma said, “For students, in Class 10, the pass and fail system will remain in place. The board exams, however, will only be held for students in Class 12.
However, due to the continuous process of promotion, students who are enrolled in Class 10 will not need to apply for admission to Class 11, he added.
