The students must note that the WBCHSE conducts the ‘Uchcha Madhyamik Pariksha’, popularly known as the higher secondary (HS) examination, for Class 12 students.
“Examinees will write the papers at home centres (own schools) as certain covid protocols are to be followed in making seating arrangements for the candidates and for that, more school buildings are required compared to other years,” WBCHSE President Chiranjib Bhattacharya was quoted as saying by news agency PTI.
The West Bengal Board exams could not be held last year due to the second wave of the Covid pandemic and results were declared after the board worked out an evaluation method based on marks obtained by a student in previous exams.
Prior to this, the HS exams had commenced before the pandemic struck in 2020 and had to be scrapped midway forcing the WBCHSE to devise a mechanism to award marks for the cancelled tests. This year’s offline exams were initially scheduled to be held from April 2 to April 20.
However, as certain dates of JEE (Main) clashed with the schedule, some of them were changed and the examinations will now continue up to April 27.
