Guwahati: Amid much confusion over High School Leaving Certification Examination (HSLC exams) conducted by the Board of Secondary Education, Assam (SEBA), education minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Saturday said the final decision will be taken only after a new government is formed on May 2.
Addressing a press briefing, the minister said SEBA will have to consult with guardians and teachers and come to a final conclusion about class 10 exams.
This decision will then be forwarded to the new government, which will be formed after the Assam Assembly Election results are announced on May 2, and they will announce it, Sarma said.
Since the model code of conduct (MCC) is still applicable in the state, the current government cannot take such decisions.
The COVID-19 cases in Assam are on a sharp upward trend. As on Friday, 573 new cases were detected in the state, against 58 new COVID-19 infections on April 1.
