Meghalaya Education Minister Lahkmen Rymbui on May 15 informed that Higher Secondary School Leaving Certificate (HSSLC) examinations for mathematics, physical education, statistics and western music will be conducted on June 8, 9 and 10.
He said the routine will be published on May 16.
“The results of SSLC and HSSLC examinations are likely to be declared in the last week of June or first week of July,” Rymbui told reporters.
There are around 3,779 students who will sit for the examinations in 59 centres.
Education official sources said, there are also students from foreign countries like Bhutan, Nepal, Myanmar and Bangladesh who will sit for the remaining examinations.
When asked on re-opening of educational institutes in Meghalaya, Rymbui said, “We will wait for the Central government’s decision as the national lockdown will end on May 17. We have reviewed our academic calendar, and have our plans in place as we are in an abnormal situation. We will announce at the right time.”
On online classes that did not benefit most of the students in the state, Rymbui said that the initiative was taken only to engage the students, but “real teaching” has to take place and educational institutes have to re-open.
