The ongoing lockdown imposed due to covid 19 virus in the state is likely to have its impact on the academic calendar of intermediate colleges of the state. According to the officials of the department, the colleges are likely to reopen either in the last week of July or the first week of August,2020. Although no final decision has been taken on the issue, the officials of the board are saying that the upcoming academic year will be short in nature when compared to regular academic year.
They are also saying that they will have to cancel all second Saturdays for the smooth passage of the academic year. The officials have not yet declared intermediate results. The crucial tenth class examinations have also not been completed in the state so far. Even if the department resumes its functioning it will take almost two months for it to complete all the activities of the last academic year including the declaration of the intermediate results.
