It is expected that the curve will flatten down till July and it will be safe for students to step out. However, it will be essential for students to wear masks and practice social distancing.

However, there has been no word on the admission process of colleges and universities, as usually a new academic year in colleges and universities begins from July.

While some states had already completed their state board exams, there has been no announcement from other state boards on their exams. Goa, on the other hand, had recently announced that it will resume its state board exams from May 20.

Majority states have recently announced summer vacations for the state-run schools for the month of May and June.
