West Bengal to review Class 12 board exam dates to avoid clash with NEET, JEE
Any change in dates of the Class 12 board examination “will not be hasty and arbitrary”, the WBCHSE President said
The West Bengal Council of Higher Secondary Education is likely to review the schedule of the Class 12 board examinations set to be held offline from April 2 in order to avoid a possible clash with dates of other medical and engineering entrance tests, a senior official said.
WBCHSE President Chiranjib Bhattacharya said that many higher secondary students sit for competitive exams conducted at the national level, and the council is, therefore, contemplating changing the schedule of the board exams. "Nothing has been finalised yet. We will explore and evaluate these factors and pass on the recommendations to the state government. The final call is likely next week,” he said.
Bhattacharya, however, said any change in dates of the Class 12 board examination “will not be hasty and arbitrary”.
