As many as 3.18 lakh students will be taking the exams and arrangements are in place according to Covid-19 guidelines. “We will ensure social distancing at every exam centre,” he said.

Last year, the PSEB had announced a 30% reduction in syllabi of Classes 10 and 12 for the 2020-21 academic session.

Results of Classes 8 and 10 declared

On May 17, the board declared results of Classes 8 and 10. The results were compiled on the basis of continuous comprehensive evaluation (CCE) for Class 8 and internal assessment for Class 10.

Yograj said if a student is not satisfied with the result, he/she can write to the board and the theory exam will be taken once the Covid-19 situation eases.

For Class 10, students can write to matricsecrecy.pseb@punjab.gov.in and for Class 8, they can send an email to primarymiddle.pseb@punjab.gov.in.
