MHA DO Lr. Dt. 20.5.2020 to Chief Secretaries and Administrators reg. exemption for conduct of Board Examinations
Dear Chief Secretary,
As you are aware, under the guidelines on lockdown measures, the opening of school has been prohibited. As a result, annual board examinations being conducted by State Education Boards/ CBSE/ ICSE, etc. for classes 10th to 12th have been suspended.
2. Requests have been received from the state Governments and CBSE for conducting the Board examinations and the matter has been examined in the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA). Taking into consideration the academic interest of large number of students, it has been decided to grant an exemption from the lockdown measures to conduct Board Examinations for Classes 10th and 12th.
3. However, the exemption to conduct Board Examinations will be subject to the following conditions:
a) In the Containment Zone, no examination centre will be permitted.
b) Wearing of face masks by teachers, staff and students will be mandatory.
c) There shall be the provision of thermal screening and sanitizer at the centres and social distancing in all the examination centres.
d) In view of an examination to be conducted by different Boards, their examination schedules should be staggered.
