Pune, July 17, 2020: With the delay in the announcement of Board examination results due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the fate of the supplementary examinations that were conducted in July past few years remains uncertain.

Since 2015, in order to prevent the students from wasting a whole year, the then State Education Minister Vinod Tawde had started conduct of supplementary examinations for those students who have not cleared the class X and XII Board examinations. These examinations are conducted in July, which gives the students a second chance at being promoted to higher education the same year. However, with the results itself declared in July due to Coronavirus lockdown, and no word on reopening of the schools yet, no decision has been made about supplementary examinations yet.

“We don’t know when schools are going to reopen, and we cannot conduct supplementary examinations unless we have a situation where the students can actually come to a school to answer examination. Hence, the decision in this regard will only be made when the situation is safe enough for reopening of schools,” Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) Secretary Ashok Bhosale told Punekarnews.in.
