GUWAHATI: The Assam government on Friday cancelled the Class 10 and 12 board exams in view of the Covid situation.

The decision, announced after a marathon meeting held with the officials of the Education Department and other stakeholders, followed the state Cabinet’s recommendation for the cancellation of the exams.

“To avoid exposing students to Covid, we have decided not to hold the board exams,” Education Minister, Ranoj Pegu told journalists.
