BMC allows various education boards to conduct exams in Mumbai

The other boards like the SSC, HSC (Maharashtra board), CBSE, IB, CISCE, and IGCSE should follow all the precautionary, health, cleanliness, and security guidelines for the COVID-19 pandemic, the order said.

The exams are usually held in February and March every year. However, these were rescheduled this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. (Representational)

The Mumbai civic body has allowed various state, national, and international educational boards to conduct exams physically as per their schedule in the city while following all COVID-19 prevention guidelines.

Earlier, citing fear of a second COVID-19 wave, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) last month deferred the opening of schools and colleges here till January 15.

However, it has now decided to permit the boards to conduct their examinations, as not doing so could result in the loss of a year for students, the BMC said in its order issued late Tuesday night.
