This year, the pass percentage has improved significantly from last year. In 2020, 86.34 per cent of students had managed to pass the 10th board exams in West Bengal.
There will be a physical exam for students who want to improve their 10th board results, the board president said.
"Students who don't find the exam results acceptable will have the option of writing an exam physically once the Covid situation abates," Mr Ganguly said.
Mr Ganguly said in view of the Covid situation in the state, WBBSE was compelled to cancel the 10th board exams and go for the alternative assessment scheme.
"By consulting doctors, the government and considering the health of students, WBBSE was compelled to cancel the exam. Tried to declare this year's result based on past performance of the students," Kalyanmoy Ganguly said.
