At a press meet regarding the conformity of the HS and HSLC examination, the chief minister of Assam gave a brief regarding how the exams might be organised in future

The chief minister of Assam, Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma, yesterday called for a press meet to make a special announcement regarding the HS and HSLC exams.
Dr Sarma said that within Saturday, the council would be announcing the dates of the upcoming examination. But he also gave a note that the exam might start on July 15.
The exam will be held only for two days, from July 15 to July 20. The students will be allotted their seats in such a way that they could maintain social distancing.
Sarma said that the lives of the people are what matters most for everyone, so on July 1, they will be carrying out an assessment to check the positivity rate in the state. If the positivity rate lowers below 2%, that's when they will think of proceeding with the examination process.
