The State Education Department has been informed by the West Bengal Board of Secondary Education (WBBSE) that it is not possible to conduct the Secondary Examination i.e. 10th class examinations from June 1 to June 10. The board has appealed to the department to take a decision on the postponement or cancellation of the West Bengal Secondary Examinations. Any decision of the State Education Department will have an impact on the examinations conducted by the West Bengal Board of Higher Secondary (12th) from 15 June 2021. Explain that in the secondary examinations of the West Bengal Board, about 10 lakh students are involved in the schools affiliated to the board.
Kalyanmoy Ganguly, Chairman of the West Bengal Board, has informed the State Education Department on Tuesday, 11 May, according to reports that it is not possible to conduct secondary examinations under the present circumstances. "It is for the state government to decide whether to postpone or cancel the secondary examinations," Ganguly said.

On the other hand, according to board officials, initial discussions have been held with the school education department about the examinations. Department officials admitted that local train services had stopped and state bus services were operating at 50 percent capacity. Due to all these, it will be difficult for the candidates as well as the teaching and non-teaching staff to reach the examination center.
