The West Bengal Board of Secondary Education will conduct the Madhyamik or Class 10 board examination from June 1, 2021, the West Bengal Council of Higher Secondary Education (WBCHSE) announced on Saturday. The board exams for West Bengal Higher secondary (HS) or Class 12 will be held from June 15.
