As per the sources, around 1.40 lakh students of the Science stream and more than 5.43 lakh students of the general stream (arts and commerce) are expected to appear for the GSEB Class 12 board exams scheduled to begin from July 1. The Gujarat board exams will be held with all the safety guidelines amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The state government is putting its best foot forward to increase the examination centres as well as rooms for the board exams. Only 20 students will be allowed to take in one exam hall. If a student misses the Gujarat Class 12 exams due to Coronavirus, he/she can reappear for the same after 25 days.
