Tamil Nadu class 11th Chemistry exam was supposed to be held on March 26, 2020. However the latest news is that the exam has been postponed. It has just been announced in live news reports in news channels that the exam board will not conduct the chemistry exam on the scheduled date. The other exams that were scheduled on the same day, Accountancy and Geography, are also anticipated to have the same fate.
Class 11th Chemistry Exam Postponed
Local news channels have reported that the concerned authorities have said that class 11th chemistry exam will not be held on 26th March. Here is a video clip.
The new exam date will be announced after monitoring the situation. There is no clarity yet on when the new exam date could be.
It is relevant to note that the authorities were under a lot of pressure in the past week for allowing class 11 exams to go on despite the coronavirus scare. By allowing exams to happen, students, teachers, parents, and everyone involved in the process were exposed to the COVID-19 impact by gathering at the same place.
Also to note is that travel and all other normal aspects of daily life are anyhow on hold due to the lockdown and curfew situation in several districts. Hence it no longer remains feasible to take exams in such a situation.
What will be the new exam date?
It is expected that the board will announce new exam date after 31st March 2020. Until now most states have given this as the date until which they will monitor the situation. After that only any decision can be taken.
Also, it is not clear until when there will be lockdowns and curfews hence making it improbable to hold exams.
