Imphal: The High School Leaving Certificate (HSLC) examination 2022 conducted by Board of Secondary Education, Manipur (BOSEM) has started on Tuesday by strictly adhering to COVID-19 SoPs and guidelines. The examination will continue till April 26.

According for BOSEM secretary Dr S Mangijao Singh, a total of 39,767 students are giving the examination physically in 192 centres across the state.

Singh further informed that as the state has slowly returned to normalcy from the COVID-19 pandemic, BOSEM decided to conduct the examination offline.

According to Singh, apart from wearing face mask and using hand sanitiser, as a preventive measure, only one student will sit per bench to maintain social distancing.

The Class 10 board examination started at 9 am and concluded at 12 noon. 

Meanwhile, the Class 12 board examination conducted by the Council of Higher Secondary Education Manipur (COHSEM) will be held from April 7 in across 118 centres in the state.

Last year, in view of the surge of COVID-19 positive cases, the state government had cancelled both Class 10 and 12 board physical examinations. The examinations were conducted through Alternative Assessment or Evaluation Mechanism.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister N Biren Singh has extended his best wishes to the students appearing for the Class 10 and 12 board examinations.

“Do not be depressed by questions that you could not answer. Attempt good replies to those questions whose answers you have prepared. Remember these examinations are merely bridges that are laid before you to cross. You have worked hard and, therefore, let go of stress and cross them with calmness of thought and fairness in action. Make it an experience to learn from, for life will throw you many more steps and bridges to cross,” CM Biren Singh said in his message to the students a day ahead of the examination.

He further urged the parents, teachers and guardians to motivate and guide the students, so that they can meet the challenges with confidence.

“Be patient, be understanding and be kind as these young children face their first big challenges in life. Teach them to overcome fear at every step of their lives. Once again, I pray that all our students perform well and come out with flying colours,” Singh added.
