Karnataka SSLC Exam 2020 begins today. The Karnataka government will commence the Karnataka SSLC Exam 2020 or Karnataka Class 10th exam 2020 from today, June 25. The state government has decided to go ahead with the exams with full precautions even after continuous fear expressed by parents, students, teachers, and political parties regarding Covid-19 risk. Many mock drills, inspections were conducted and guidelines have been issued to all the centres.
The education department officials have ensured that the safety and security of students and staff would be ensured at all times during the exams. The centres would be opened at 7:30 am today and the exams would be conducted from June 25 to July 4, 2020, for the papers not conducted due to pandemic outbreak. On June 24, education minister S Suresh Kumar talking about the exams said, “We have taken this decision in the interest of students that too after consulting experts, opposition leaders and others. We have made all necessary arrangements and are following the standard operating procedure given by the health department.”
“Children’s safety is a top priority. In each room, only 18 students will be allowed, 20 if the room is bigger. Social distancing will be maintained. Each student will be tested with a thermal scanner. If a student forgets a mask, the centres will give one. Sanitizers will be used. We request parents to cooperate and maintain social distance at the gates,” he detailed the preparations. Schools across Karnataka have taken extra measures to ensure the safety of students amid rising cases of corona in the state.
A whopping 86,000 people, including 63,000 state-run school teachers and 23,000 from other departments like health, police and social welfare will be on duty for the smooth conduct of the exams in 6 subjects, including English, Kannada, third language, natural science, social science and mathematics. About 200-250 students will sit for the exam at each centre, with about 200 in the centres located in the containment centres, said Sumangala. Though all students appearing for the exams have been given masks to wear along with hall tickets, additional masks will be kept at each centre as wearing it is compulsory for writing the paper.
The exams were earlier scheduled from March 27 to April 9, but were put off as the lockdown was extended thrice up to May 31. The state department of public instructions released the revised time table on May 18 for the board exams and uploaded it on its website for downloading by the students. As a 2-metre distance has to be kept between two students, more exam centres have been arranged to comply with the guidelines.
