Assam to scrap Class 10 board exams from next year, state CM announces

The Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has announced that the Secondary Education Board of Assam (SEBA) will not conduct Class 10 (HSLC) board exams from next academic year. As per the official announcement, from now on, the Madhyamik level exams will be conducted as a class examination.

While students will be properly assessed and will be marked as either failed or pass, however, the exams will be conducted at the school level. However, Assam HS exams will be conducted in the usual manner annually.

This decision to skip board exams for Class 10 has been taken as the officials believe that the Class 10 exams will not continue to be that significant, in line with the NEP. The minister also notified that soon the Assam Higher Secondary Education Council (AHSEC) and the SEBA will be merged.

Meanwhile, SEBA announced Class 10 results in May this year. This time, a total of 94913 candidates achieved the first division (46431 were boys and 48482 were girls), 148573 got second (71060 boys and 77513 girls), and 58394 students got the third division (25033 boys and 33361 girls).

Out of the 4,15,324 students who appeared in Class 10 exams, 3,01,880 students passed the exam. The board recorded an overall pass percentage of 72.69 percent
