The decision to extend last date for submission of application may have been taken in view of the delay in results of several boards, including Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).
Class 12 exams of several boards have also been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, Bihar Board has declared the results of Class 10 and 12 exams. The board announced the Class 12 result on 24 March and Class 10 on 26 May.
Last month, the varsity decided to begin evaluation of answer sheets of final year’s examinations after 17 May. The exams were held from February 27 to March 14, before the imposition of the first phase of the coronavirus lockdown.
