The Cabinet will take a call on promoting Class X students enrolled in various government schools in the state at its meeting on May 5.

Though the government has been contemplating cancelling the exams and promoting the students the matter will finally be placed before the Cabinet at its meeting scheduled for May 5. Sources in the Education Department revealed that as far as the Class XII students are concerned the government could adopt a policy of wait and watch since the CBSE too has put on hold a decision on class XII exams.

It is most likely that the Cabinet could give nod to the proposal of the HP Board of School Education regarding the cancellation of Class X examination. Since health experts have indicated that there is likely to be a major surge in May, the chances of holding the matriculation exams seem bleak.

In view of the delay in the decision, the students are in a dilemma as the Covid situation is worsening. A major increase, both in the positive cases and fatalities, is being witnessed daily.

A total of 1.26 lakh regular students will be taking the class X exams if at all they are held. As far as class XII is concerned, there are a total of 10,00,982 students besides about 14,000 enrolled under open school.

So far, only one exam each has been held, both for Class X and Class XII. The exams had to be postponed as the cases suddenly rose.
