The Karnataka government had earlier come in for criticism after it said that the exams will be held as per schedule.

The Karnataka examination board is also planning to allow the students to appear for KSEEB SSLC Exam 2020 in the district where they are currently located.

The Minister said the government is hiring more buildings to conduct the examination.

The education department has decided to use 43,720 rooms in 2,879 buildings across the state to conduct the SSLC exam. During the examination, social distancing would be maintained and all the students have to wear masks compulsorily.

The Bharat Scouts and Guides volunteers are getting ready to supply masks to the students. In addition to the Scouts and Guides, the Ramakrishna Mission is supplying about two lakh masks in Bengaluru South region and Ramanagara district.

This is being done to avoid unnecessary travel to the designated examination centre in the wake of COVID-19 outbreak. A lot of students have gone back to their hometowns due to the current lockdown.

A new seating arrangement will also be made to make sure that the students follow social distancing. Sanitising, thermal screening and masks will be made mandatory during the exams.
