    New Delhi (NVI): Considering the rise in the number of COVID-19 cases, the Maharashtra government has postponed the state board exams for classes 10 and 12.

    The class 12 exams will now be held by the end of May and the class 10 exams in June.

    The exact dates will be announced based on the developing situation, which the administration is monitoring.

    Last week, the state government had announced that all students in Class 9 and Class 11 will be passed without taking exams, while a similar decision was taken for the students of Class 1-8 earlier in the month.

    Maharashtra reported its highest-ever single-day spike of coronavirus cases as the state added over 63,000 positive cases in the last 24 hours.
