“Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy suggested us not to conduct examinations and promote all students to next class," the education minister said.

He further added that AP SSC 2020 exams which were originally scheduled to be conducted in March/April, had been postponed twice due to lockdown enforced by the state and the Centre to restrict the spread of novel Coronavirus.

“We shall soon decide on the guidelines to allot grades to the passed SSC students, based on their performance in the periodical assessment tests,” Suresh said.

Around 6.3 lakh students were supposed to take the AP Board Class 10 examinations 2020 which were to be held from 10 July. The state government has decided to conduct six papers instead of 11.
