All board exams in Odisha have been postponed until May 31.

Due to the steady increase in covid-19 cases in the state, the Odisha government on Thursday postponed class X (matric) and Class XII (plus two) board exams, putting an end to all speculation. The state's board exams have been postponed, according to Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik, due to the students' safety during the corona pandemic.

The Board of Secondary Education (BSE) and the Council of Higher Secondary Education (CHSE) have scheduled the class X and class XII board exams for May 3 to May 18, respectively. Once the situation with Covid-19 improves, a decision on new exam dates will be made. “In the first week of June, the state government and the CHSE will study the Covid-19 situation and determine the next exam date. "Students will have enough time to study for their exams," the chief minister's office said in an official statement.

The decision to postpone board exams came only one day after the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) cancelled and postponed class X and XII board exams across the country due to an unprecedented increase in new Covid-19 cases. Furthermore, the government has cancelled the annual exam for students in classes IX and XI, and all students will be upgraded to classes X and XII without having to sit for final exams. Physical classes for students in classes IX and XI will be closed from April 8 to April 30, according to the government.
