AHSEC Exams and Covid Scenerio
Though the covid situation is deteriorating, many experts and the authorities from AHSEC still believe that exams can be conducted smoothly following all the mandatory Covid protocols. Also, the Government of Assam is taking initiatives to vaccinate a maximum number of examinees in the meantime. However, a heavy rise in covid cases might bring back the previous years’ scenario, and for minimizing the covid issues, authorities may need to take some serious decisions. But, presently all the students should be prepared for an offline mode of examinations without any interruptions in the released schedule.
