In an administrative move, the Assam government has announced the merger of two key educational boards, the Secondary Education Board of Assam (SEBA) and the Assam Higher Secondary Education Council (AHSEC), to form the Assam State Board of Education (ASSEB).
The merger aims to streamline the state’s education system and enhance efficiency in managing both secondary and higher secondary education. This decision comes as part of the government’s efforts to improve the quality of education and address administrative redundancies.
SEBA has been responsible for conducting examinations and granting certifications for Class 10 students in the state, while AHSEC has overseen the education standards and examinations for Class 12 students. By consolidating these functions under ASSEB, the government aims to create a more cohesive and integrated approach to managing the education system.
The merger is expected to bring several benefits, including better coordination between secondary and higher secondary education, simplified administrative processes, and improved resource utilization. It is also likely to enhance accountability and transparency in the education sector.
