Earlier, the board was forced to conduct the exams in a staggered manner due to the coronavirus-imposed lockdown to curb the outbreak of the highly-infectious disease. Exams for some of the subjects were held in the month of July. Schools remain closed since March last year and were partially opened in some states from October 15. However, few states decided to keep them closed considering the rise in the number of coronavirus cases.
