New Delhi: Days after the Central Board of Secondary Education announced the Class X and XII board examination would be conducted from May 4, students of the Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) have demanded deferment of the crucial papers, scheduled to be held next month, i.e, in February.

Taking to Twitter, a number of students, using #postpone_biharboardexam2021, have requested the board to postpone examinations, citing health risks due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“No online classes, no reduction in the syllabus, no offline classes then on what basis BSEB expects us to write the exam”, asked a student on the micro-blogging site. 

Another student tweeted, “I’m requesting you to extend the dates of class 12 Bihar board exam 2021 as the pandemic has caused major disruption. Many students haven’t completed their syllabus.”

Meanwhile, Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) has released the admit cards for both Class X and XII Exams 2021 on its official website.
