Verma said it was not possible for the Board to conduct the compartment exam for next couple of months, owing to the situation due to pandemic. “Even if the exams would conduct after 2- 3 months, the results will likely to release by November or December. By that time, it will be too late for kids to take admission in colleges or senior secondary schools,” he said.
He added: “Awarding grace marks to the students failed in maximum two papers, is a one- exemption due to Covid- 19, for the future of kids. However, the compartment exams will not be held.”
