Assam: Govt to prioritize class XII board exams; Ranoj Pegu

The results for the Class XII board exams would be the most important exam for students going ahead.

Assam government has decided to give utmost priority to the Class XII board exams in the academic setup.

The Class X board exams or the matriculation exams will lose their importance as the government would be conducting board exams from Class IX onwards.

The results for the Class XII board exams would be the most important exam for students going ahead. This was announced by Assam education minister Ranoj Pegu.

Pegu said that this new plan of the Assam government will come into effect next year. Once this comes into effect, colleges will no longer be able to conduct exams for Class XI and Class XII.

These exams would be held at the school level as well. For this, about a thousand primary level schools would be upgraded to higher secondary level schools.

Ranoj Pegu further announced that both the SEBA and the AHSEC boards would be merged into one education board for this purpose. Pegu said that process for the merger has already begun and would get completed by next year.
