The Telangana State Board of Intermediate Education (TSBIE) has cancelled the public examinations for second-year Intermediate students. The TSBIE exams were postponed in April because of the Covid surge in the state.
Now, considering the pandemic third wave spread, the KCR government has decided to cancel the second-year Intermediate exams.
Telangana SSC exams, earlier slated to be conducted from May 17, had also been cancelled considering the risk involved in holding exams. The results of Class 10 were declared last month based on the internal assessments. The state has declared ‘all pass’ this year for 10th students.
Meanwhile, the Telangana government extended the ongoing lockdown to contain the spread of COVID-19 by another 10 days with relaxations from 6 am to 6 pm every day.
