A Suresh, education minister, said in a press conference, "We have tried our best to conduct the examinations and started making arrangements. But, ultimately we felt that the arrangements may not be adequate as the pandemic was spreading fast across the state. Parents and teachers unions too felt it was not advisable to conduct the exams."

After a review of the situation, Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy suggested that the AP SSC exams 2020 be cancelled and all the Class 10 students promoted, Suresh added. As per the revised schedule, AP SSC 2020 exams are scheduled from July 10 to 17 by curtailing the number of papers from 11 to six. Earlier, the AP Class 10 exams were scheduled to be held in March but were postponed due to the Covid-19 lockdown.

The education minister further said the advanced AP Inter 1st year and 2nd year supplementary and improvement exams, that are likely to be held from July 11, were also being cancelled. All those students, who did not qualify in the Intermediate first and second years, would now stand promoted, he added.
