Earlier on Thursday, the Supreme Court told Andhra Pradesh it is not convinced of the precautionary measures suggested by the state for holding Class 12 board exams and said it won’t allow them unless it is satisfied that there will be no fatality due to Covid.

“We are not satisfied with the precautionary measures you will be taking for holding the exams. We are not convinced with the mechanism you have devised. Unless we are satisfied that you are able to conduct the examination without any fatality, we will not allow you to hold the examination,” the bench said.

Suresh said that the state is not in a position to conduct the examinations within the time period stipulated by the top court.

“We are keen on conducting exams as second-year Intermediate marks play a key role in the future of students. We have submitted an affidavit to the center explaining the safety measures taken while conducting the examinations. But the Supreme Court gave orders to complete the entire process of examinations and declare results by July 31, 2021. We are not in a position to conduct exams in the shortest possible time,” education minister Audimulapu Suresh said.
