Board Exams 2021: The municipal body of Mumbai has allowed various state, national and international academic boards to conduct the examination in the city as per their schedule, following all the guidelines of Kovid-19 prevention. Earlier, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) last month refused to open schools and colleges till 15 January, citing the threat of a second wave of COVID-19.
The BMC said in its order issued late on Tuesday that, however, it has now been decided to allow the board to conduct its examinations, as not doing so could result in a year’s loss for the students. A BMC official said on Wednesday that he has been given permission to conduct the exam from January 18.
The order states that members of the International School Association (Cambridge Board) may conduct preliminary or pre-planned examinations of class IX to XII. It said that other boards like SSC, HSC (Maharashtra Board), CBSE, IB, CISCE and IGCSE can conduct examinations as per their fixed timetable. The board can declare the exams of class 10th and 12th.
The order states that they have to follow all the precautionary, health, hygiene and safety guidelines for protection from the Kovid-19 epidemic.
