The Mizoram government has postponed the pending Class 12 board examinations again and they will now be held from 1 July onwards due to the COVID-19 pandemic, reported Jagran Josh.

According to the report, almost 4,700 students were unable to appear for the Class 12 board examinations for the following subjects: Economics, Chemistry, Sociology, Computer Science, and Home Science.

This is the second time that the state government has postponed the pending Class 12 board examinations. The exams were first scheduled for 22 April. The exams were then postponed again to 16 June 2020 after the first date attracted criticism from students.

The board authorities have since postponed the examinations again after appeals were made by the central government not to conduct the exams due to the lockdown.

According to the report, Class 10 compartmental examinations will also be conducted from 1 July.
