| Tuesday | 4th May, 2021
Students are advised to keep a regular check on the official website of the Uttarakhand board for regular updates regarding the dates of the exams.
The government of Uttarakhand has decided to keep all the higher educational institutes in the state shut in view of the increase in Covid-19 cases in the past few weeks. As per the official order, the universities will remain closed till further notice.
All the government and private universities in the state will have to follow the order issued by the Uttarakhand government. The higher educational institutes have been instructed to conduct online classes for the time being.
The closure of higher educational institutes in Uttarakhand was announced last month till April 30. The closure of institutes has been further extended due to the sudden surge of Covid-19 cases in the state in the past few weeks.
Due to the rise in Covid-19 cases across the state, the government of Uttarakhand has also postponed the Class 12 board exams for this academic session, while the Class 10 board exams stand canceled.
This decision was taken shortly after the Central Board of Secondary Education decided to postpone the Class 12 board exams and cancel the Class 10 board exams, which were scheduled to commence from May 4, 2021.
Even though the Class 10 exams in Uttarakhand have been canceled, the students will have the option to appear for the exams during the conduction of the Class 12 exams this year. The exams were earlier scheduled to commence in the first week of May.
