Karnataka SSLC Exams 2020 begins tomorrow amid COVID -19 scare. The Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board (KSEEB) is all set to conduct the Secondary School Leaving Certificate (SSLC) board exams for class 10 students across the state from tomorrow i.e., June 25.

“Elaborate arrangements have been made to hold the SSLC exams from Thursday to July 4 for 8.5 lakh students in 3,179 centres across the state as per the lockdown guidelines to ensure the safety and welfare of the wards,” Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board Director V. Sumangala told IANS in Bengaluru. Of the 8.5 lakh students registered to appear for the exams, 4,48,560 are boys and 3,99,642 are girls.

Of the total centres, 2,879 are main and 300 in block, set up to accommodate students spilling over from other centres to ensure social distancing. Though the 3-hour exam will commence daily at 10.30 a.m., the students have been told to report at their respective centres by 9 a.m. or 90 minutes earlier for thermal screening, wearing mask and washing hands with sanitizer before entering the centre, said Sumangala.

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

Candidates have been advised to adhere to the guidelines issued by the board such as Social Distancing. Candidates should not the without face mask the entry will not be permitted at the examination centre. Minister of Education had said that the students from containment zones will be carefully handled. The number of notice boards giving details of examinations halls too will be increased and so will be the frequency of announcements over the PA system to guide the students on what they need to do, once they are inside the examination centres, the minister said.
