The decision on holding the class 12 board exams in Assam will be taken after the CBSE announces criteria for assessment of marks of the students, said chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Thursday.

Chief minister Sarma further said a decision on the cancellation of exams will be taken after consultation with all stakeholders as it is a question of a students’ future.

The Centre on Tuesday decided to cancel the CBSE Class 12 board exams amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Supreme Court on Thursday directed the CBSE and CICSE to place on record objective criteria for assessment of marks in two weeks.

“We will have to take a practical decision as a guardian and take into consideration the students who aspire to pursue medical or engineering courses and what will be the admission criteria for them,” Sarma said.

Earlier, education minister Dr Ranoj Pegu had said that the government will take decisions regarding HSLC and HS exams very soon.

“We have taken the opinions of all the stakeholders. The process of taking opinion has been completed,” Pegu had said.
