Meanwhile, Assam students remain in a dilemma as uncertainity looms over the exams. The state government had said it will hold the class 10 and 12 board exams in July with reduced subjects if the COVID-19 positivity rate comes down to 2%.
Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma however said that if the positivity rate stays above 2% on July 1, the board exams will be cancelled.
