Amid the rising cases of COVID19, the Education Minister of Bihar, Vijay Kumar Chaudhary has announced that the Board exams for Class 10 and 12 will be conducted as per the schedule and will not be postponed. The Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) exams are scheduled to begin in February 2022. Over 30 Lakh students have registered to appear for the BSEB exam. The Education Minister of Bihar has assured that strict COVID-19 protocols will be followed to ensure the safety of the students appearing for the exam.
In light of the worsening COVID-19 situation, students will be allowed to use their Aadhar Card instead of the admit card. In the case of any discrepancies in their admit card, students will have to carry an ID Proof too (PAN Card, Driver’s License, Voter’s ID, etc.). The admit card for Class 10 Board exams was released on January 8, 2022, and the admit card for Class 12 exams is expected to be released on January 20, 2022.
The BSEB has also designed an app “BSEB Information App” for students and teachers, in which they can find all the information related to the Board exams, student records, admit cards, etc. Candidates can download their admit card from the official website biharboardonline.bihar.gov.in or through the BSEB official app “BSEB Information App”.
