According to a report by The Indian Express, Bihar education board is going to declare the dates for Class 10 and Class 12 board exams for the 2021 academic year by the next month. However, it is expected that the matriculation exams next year will be held sometime in the month of February.
Earlier this month, the Bihar board had awarded grace marks to more than two lakh students of Class 10 and Class 12. These students had not managed to clear one or two papers in the annual board examination. This was done to avoid the conduction of the compartmental exams amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Bihar education board had declared the higher secondary results on 23 March, while the Class 10 results were released on 26 May, 2020. From the results, it was revealed that as many as 3,40,633 students were unable to pass the board exams. Out of the total, the board had qualified 2,14,287 candidates.
