He further added that for Andhra Pradesh, it is not possible to conduct the inter exams and declare the results by July 31, 2021, so they have called off the exams.
Incidentally, on Thursday, the apex court of the country directed all the state boards to notify the assessment scheme within 10 days from today. It has further asked the state boards to declare the internal assessment results by July 31, 2021.

According to the ANI report, the Andhra Pradesh government in its affidavit before the top court said that experts have been consulted and they are of the view that it will be feasible to hold the examination, hence the state will conduct the examination tentatively in the last week of July 2021.
The affidavit further said that about 5.20 lakh students will appear for the board examination and there would be precautionary measures in place including holding exams on alternate days and allowing only 15 to 18 students in one exam centre. Furthermore, the exam centres will follow social distancing and sanitisation protocols and also one medical officer will be present at the exam centres.
