In the wake of extension of lockdown in the country, Bihar Board has delayed the evaluation of Class 10th exams papers. BSEB Chairman Anand Kishore, said the answer sheet evaluation resumes after May 17, 2020.
Bihar Class 10 students have been waiting for a very long time for the Bihar Board 10th Result. Their answer sheet evaluation was supposed to be continued after the lockdown was lifted on May 3, but on May 1, after PM Narendra Modi announced a 2-week lockdown extension.
The President of Bihar School Examination Committee and BSEB Chairman Anand Kishor, said the BSEB had decided to further postpone the evaluation of answer books of the Annual Secondary Examination 2020 or class 10 board exams till May 17, 2020.
Moreover, BSEB will take a decision within the next two days about whether the answer sheet evaluation for BSEB Class 10th board exams can be started off in the lockdown period itself.
Around 50 pc of evaluation has been completed.
The official statement said that all District Education Officers as well as Central Directors of all the assessment centres had been duly informed of the decision of the committee through a letter.
Earlier, the BSEB declared the 12th class results in the mid of the lockdown.
