Mumbai: As Goa has been declared Coronavirus free, the state government has allowed the examination to be held for pending papers of class 12 and for all subjects of class 10 at the end of this month when the current phase of lockout ends.
The Goa Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education said on Wednesday that the exam stalled due to the outbreak of COVID-19 will be held from May 20.
Board President Ramakrishna Samant said that HSSC (Class 12) examinations will be held from May 20 to May 22 (two pending papers), while SSC (Class 10) examinations for all papers will start from May 21.
A detailed time table will be released soon, he said.
The board announced the dates after moving on from the state government.
Earlier this week, Chief Minister Pramod Sawant said that the HSSC and SSC exams will be held on May 17 after the third phase of coronovirus-enforced lockdown ends.
These board-held annual examinations are usually held in March-April. The coastal state, which currently has no active coronovirus cases, falls under the green zone.
