The official X handle of Assam CM on June 5, stated, “Class 12 to be the statewide board level examination. Examination of Class 10 to be conducted by school authorities, post which students can directly transition into Class 11. The Secondary Education Board of Assam (SEBA) and Assam Higher Secondary Education Council (AHSEC) to be merged for administrative efficiency.”

As per the official statement, the merger is to ensure a cohesive approach to education at the secondary and higher secondary levels. Nobody will lose their job due to the merger.

The CMO Assam further wrote, “Assam is one of the first states to implement the NEP and rationalize the education sector under the leadership of Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma. The Merger is to ensure a cohesive approach to education in the secondary and higher secondary level. Nobody will lose their job due to the merger.”
