As examinations cannot be conducted only on the basis of online teaching as there is a chances that many students may not have understood the subjects properly or not attended the classes due to the lag infacilities such as electricity . Hence, it can also affect the percentage of the students.
However, the final decision in this regard will be taken by the Odisha government after reviewing all aspects including the COVID-19 pandemic situation in the State.
