In view of the rising Covid-19 case count in the state of Telangana, the Telangana State Board of Intermediate Education (TSBIE) has announced its decision to postpone the class 12 and intermediate exams. The Telangana State Secondary School Certificate (TS SSC) has also announced cancellation of class 10 board exams. The decision was notified by the boards on the evening of April 15th 2021.
Special Chief Secretary to the government ChitraRamachandran announced the decisions made by TSBIE & TS SSC boards on April 15th 2021. The Telangana state education boards have followed in the footsteps of the CBSE board which cancelled its 10th board exams and postponed its 12th board exams in an announcement on 14th April 2021. Mrs. ChitraRamachandran further added that the results of the 10th standard students will be evaluated using an internally developed objective method. Students who are not satisfied with this objective criteria evaluations results will be given the option to appear for exams at a later date when the situation improves and conducting exams is a feasible option.
The next decision on the 12th board exams will follow after a review meeting to be held in the first week of June (after the review meeting of the CBSE board on the same) and gauge whether the situation in the state is safe enough for the board to proceed with the state board 12th standard exams.
The decision also affects the Intermediate first year students who will be cleared to sit for second year classes, although there is speculation that they may have write and clear first year subject examinations at a later date when the pandemic situation in the state improves. The official statement states that the details on the Class 10 objective criteria will be announced in due time. Students who have to appear for the 12th standard or Intermediate 2nd year board exams have been asked not to worry as they will be given at least 15 to 20 days of notice before their exams commence.
