PANAJI: The results of the HSSC (Class XII) examination held by the Goa Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education earlier this year would be announced next week, a senior official said on Thursday.

Board chairman Ramakrishna Samant said that the exact date of the Higher Secondary School Certificate (HSSC) exam result would be announced either on Monday or Tuesday.

"The results would be declared in the coming week as the paper correction process is over," he said.

The exam was held in March. But as the coronavirus- triggered nation-wide lockdown came into force later that month, exam for two HSSC papers could not be held then. Exam for those two remaining papers was held in the last week of May.

Meanwhile, Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Thursday said that in view of the rising COVID-19 cases in the state, he was concerned about the students of Class X and XII, who would be appearing for the board exams in the academic year 2020-21.

Talking to reporters after paying tribute to martyrs on the Goa Revolution Day here, Sawant, who also hold the education portfolio, said that some schools in the state had already started holding online classes.

"But I am more concerned about the students who will be appearing for the Secondary School Certificate and the Higher Secondary School Certificate standard board examinations this academic year," he said.

The government was yet to decide when and how to resume the academic year in the state, he said, adding that online classes were not compulsory.

The chief minister admitted that mobile network issues in some parts of the state were not conducive to virtual schooling.

"People are to be blamed for the connectivity issues. When mobile companies were installing towers in some villages, people were opposing it," he said.
