Kolkata/IBNS: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday announced the revised schedule for the Higher Secondary (HS) examinations (for class 12) as the dates have clashed with the upcoming byelections announced by the Election Commission.

The class 12 state board examinations are scheduled to be held between Apr 2 and 26.

The revision in the examination schedule comes as two byelections, one in Ballygunge assembly constituency and the other in Asansol Lok Sabha seat, are due to be held on Mar 12.

As per the revised schedule, first Bengali language and second Bengali language examinations have been scheduled to be held on Apr 2 and 4 respectively.

The examinations of vocational subjects will be held on Apr 5.

"There will be no examinations from Apr 6 to Apr 15," said Banerjee, who apologised to the students for the inconvenience caused by the rescheduling.

"They (EC) call election dates in phases as per the direction of the BJP," the Chief Minister added.
