HPBOSE 12th Exam 2020: As per the latest update, Himachal Pradesh Board has decided to only conduct pending 12th Class Exam for Geography subject. Exam for all other subjects including Computer Science and Vocational Subjects has been cancelled by the board. To confirm the development, the board has released an official notification on its website, which has asked the examination centres where Geography subject exam is to be held to submit the signature charts for the same soon. All the other examination centres, where pending exam for other subjects are scheduled to be held have been ordered to close-up immediately and submit the answer sheets and copies for evaluation at the nearest dropping centre.
In the official notification released by the Board, HPBOSE has claimed that the number of students registered for the 12th Class Board exam for Computer Science and other vocational subjects is higher. With the high number of students slated to appear for these subjects, it would be difficult for the board to ensue social distancing and follow the guidelines prescribed by the central government for containment of the spread of COVID-19. On the other hand, for Geography subject, a total of 4335 students have registered for the examination; therefore it would be easy for the board to hold exams for this subject. Furthermore, Geography is one of the 4 key subjects that are part of HPBOSE 12th Exam 2020 and therefore needs to be held in order to complete the examination.
While the board has confirmed that going forward it would only be holding exam only for Geography subject, it has not specified any date for the examination. The official notification states that the exam date for Geography subject exam would be notified soon by the board. Until then, students have been advised to stay tuned to official website and do not believe any rumours that are found to be circulating on social media platforms.
Following the outbreak of Coronavirus in the country, HP Board had decided to postpone all the pending board examination for class 12 students, which were scheduled to be held from 23rd to 26th March 2020. According to original datesheet, during this period, exams for subject such as subjects like Geography, Computer Science (I.P), Financial Literacy, and other vocational subjects were lined up. However, now nearly after two months of complete lockdown, the HPBOSE has decided to cancel all pending examinations for Class 12 students and instead only hold exams for Geography subject.REGISTER FOR RESULTS UPDATES
