“We had earlier planned to hold the board exams in May, but after the CBSE declared its exam schedule we thought that if we delay (the announcement) it would only lead to anxiety among students.

The state board examinations have been delayed by two months this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In 2020, the board exams were held from March 5-17. In the current academic session, classroom teaching in schools across the state had remained suspended for over nine months and only online classes were held. Classroom teaching for classes 9 to 12 resumed earlier this month.

“The state government took the decision today after which a detailed date sheet was announced,” GSHSEB chairman A J Shah said. On January 21, GSHSEB had announced online applications for class 12 science stream board examinations would be accepted from January 21 to February 20 midnight on the board’s website. This applied to all regular and repeat students of class 12 science stream for mandatory online application.

“While class 12 registration is going on, registration for class 10 and class 12 general stream will start soon,” GSHSEB chairman said.
