August Regents exams canceled; students just have to pass the courses

The State Education Department on Thursday announced the cancellation of the Regents exams for August due to the Covid-19 shutdown.

Students who had failed a Regents exam previously would tend to retake it in August. But the state in early April canceled the June Regents exams and told students that as long as they passed their Regents courses this year they would be exempt from the exams and still earn credit.

The pandemic has closed schools across the state through at least May 15.

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said he would address by the end of this week whether schools would reopen for the school year and what might happen with summer school.


Cancellation of Regents exams won't mean no Regents diplomas
