In the wake of Coronavirus epidemic, the Andhra Pradesh Government decided to cancel the AP SSC Class 10 examinations. The govt has decided to promote the students.
State education minister A Suresh said the government took the decision to safeguard the students’ health in view of the rapid spread of coronavirus.
The examinations were originally scheduled on July 10 but were first put off due to the impending elections to local bodies and subsequently due to the Covid-19 lockdown.
As the lockdown restrictions were gradually relaxed, the government announced that the public exams will be conducted from July 10, by curtailing the number of papers from 11 to six.
“We have accordingly started making arrangements but after a review of the situation, Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy suggested that we cancel the examinations and promote all the students,” the Education Minister said.
He said the advanced supplementary and improvement examinations for Intermediate (Class 11 and 12) students, slated from July 11, were also being cancelled.
