While the Class X examination will not be conducted, the students studying in Class XII will get a chance to appear in the exams whenever the situation permits. These dates will be decided by the central government.
Alternatively if the class XII students do not wish to appear in the examinations their results will be declared on the basis of their performance in the last two examinations. These results will be published by 15 July.
