Board conducts this exam every year, but last year the exam was not conducted due to covid. It has been said in a notification that information has been received from the intelligence department that internet may be misused for illegal work (related to examination) in the next few days. The notification, however, did not mention the names of the areas where this restriction would be applicable. The official said that the decision will be taken as per the requirement. However, phone calls and SMS services will not be banned.
