Kohima: Students who could not appear for the recently-concluded High School Leaving Certificate (HSLC) and the ongoing Higher Secondary School Leaving Certificate (HSSLC) examinations due to COVID-19 have been notified about re-examination. The Nagaland Board of School Education (NBSE) on Thursday notified that students who failed to appear in the board exam in some subject (s) on being tested COVID-19 positive can reappear for their examination.
This includes students who had to go for COVID-19 testing and missed the examination but have COVID-19 negative reports.
A COVID-19 positive candidate, if tested negative again, would be allowed to sit for the subject(s) which he/she could not appear earlier, after producing a COVID-19 Negative report duly certified by the medical department.
The NBSE informed that the board exams dates and centre would be notified later and that these students would not be charged.
Such students are also required to apply officially to the Board, stating the subject(s) which they intend to appear, along with a photocopy of their admit card. The students’ applications should be forwarded by the respective Centre Superintendent of the Examination Centres of HSLC/HSSLC 2021.
As for the HSLC examination, the application should be submitted by April 28, and for the HSSLC examination, the application should be submitted by May 5.
All centre superintendents and institution heads have been directed to disseminate the information to students who fall under the category.
The NBSE stated that this is a one-time measure to ensure that the candidates are not deprived of appearing in the HSLC and HSSLC examination for the current year.
It assured that the one-time examination would be conducted strictly adhering to the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) issued by the government for the conduct of the examination.
