Home Minister of the state Basavraj Bommai said that “ home health and education departments are working together to ensure hassle-free SSLC board exams in the state.” The officials are advised to visit the students who are appearing for SSLC board exams, to check their safety. He also said to the above-mentioned departments with respect to safeguarding students, “Though the conduct of the exam is the jurisdiction of the education department, the home department is playing a key role in ensuring a safe atmosphere to students.”
“The department’s role becomes crucial, especially as the High Court has dismissed a PIL against conducting the exam and directed the government to monitor the precautions taken,” he added.
Karnataka Education Minister S.Suresh said, “The students who reside in the containment zones do not need to appear for the SSLC board exam”. The media reports say, they will be instead treated as fresh candidates and will be allowed to attend the exams later. Fresh sets of hall tickets and marks cards will be issued for such candidates. The board examination will be conducted for these students along with supplementary exams.
8.5 lakh students registered for the board exams included regulars, freshers, repeaters, and private students who appeared directly and not through schools, especially in towns and villages across the state.
The official notice on the admit card was made available on the official site of KSEEB at kseeb.kar.nic.in.

Health Ministry has deployed a minimum of two Asha workers at each exam center this time. All measures have been taken to disinfect exam centers. The health minister informed that students from containment areas would be provided with N-95 masks.
Social distancing was taken very strictly. A 200m area around the centers was cordoned off. Parents were asked to stay out & maintain distance. Students were given masks & hand sanitizer & were made to undergo temperature check-ups. They were quickly guided to their rooms & biscuits & drinking water was made available on their respective seats. Every classroom, 20 students will be writing their papers. They have also arranged two separate classrooms for those from containment zones and those who are unwell. In other schools, the designated centers were checked & sanitized before the exam.
Students marched out in neat lines with gaps at 1.30 pm. But the crowd began to swell as parents returned to pick up their kids. When parents and students lingered around, officials asked them to move away.
States Telangana, Tamil Nadu & Puducherry have canceled 10th exams & decided to promote students on the basis of internal assessment.
In the meanwhile, the Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board (KSEEB) or the Karnataka SSLC Board has not notified any exact date for the result declaration. This has put students in a precarious position, wherein they do not have any authentic source of information as far as Karnataka SSLC board Results in 2020 are concerned.
All the best students. Wish you all the best & you will clear out the exams with flying colors.
