Jammu and Kashmir schools closed
The spread of the Covid-19 pandemic has increased in Jammu and Kashmir, due to which, the administration had to impose certain restrictions across the union territory. One of these is to shut down all the educational institutes in the region.
All the schools and colleges in Jammu and Kashmir are to remain closed till May 15 due to the rise in Covid-19 cases. The closure of educational institutes in the union territory will most likely be extended as the Covid-19 situation is still not under control across the region.
Almost every state across the country has shifted to online classes amid the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. Schools and colleges will most likely reopen from the end of June or the first week of July if the Covid-19 situation gets better.
Many national entrance exams and state board exams have also been postponed due to the pandemic. The most notable of these is the postponement of the CBSE Class 12 board exams and the cancellation of the CBSE Class 10 board exams for this academic session.
