Aizawl: The Mizoram government has once again postponed Class 12 board examinations suspended midway due to the COVID-19 pandemic and decided to conduct it from 1 July, an official said.
The examinations of Higher Secondary School Leaving Certificate (HSSLC) for remaining subjects in arts, science and commerce streams were supposed to be conducted from 16 June as per the revised schedule after these were postponed in April.
The remaining Class 12 examinations will now be held between 1 and 3 July, according to a notification issued by the Mizoram Board of School Education (MBSE) on Tuesday.
The examinations have been deferred as the government had imposed a complete lockdown till 22 June, the official said.
About 4,700 students could not complete their board examinations in Economics, Chemistry, Sociology, Computer Science and Home Science, he said.
The examinations were suspended in March due to the lockdown.
The MBSE had, earlier, announced the resumption of the board examinations from 22 April, which triggered stiff opposition from students citing various inconveniences amid the nationwide lockdown.
The authorities postponed it following an appeal by the central government to put on hold the examinations due to the lockdown.
The compartmental examinations for Class 10 will also be held on 1 July, the notification said.
