The central varsity said the schedule and other modalities of the exams will be notified later.
The two exams are equivalent to the final board tests of classes 10 and 12 for the Visva-Bharati students.
Visva-Bharati offers pre-degree (10+2) courses in science and humanities through the two schools under the university.
While external residential students get admission to Patha Bhavana, external day scholars go to Siksha Satra.
However, unlike lakhs of candidates appearing for Madhyamik and Uchchya Madhyamik exams, the number of students in the two Visva-Bharati schools will not be more than 200, a university official said, adding hence holding the tests online won’t pose much of a problem.
