S. Suresh Kumar, the Primary and Secondary Education Minister of Karnataka announced the plan to conduct revision classes for the Karnataka Secondary Education Board SSLC students for a week, before they write the board exams.
In conversation with the press people in Chamarajanagar, he claims, “There will be too much of a gap between classes conducted and the exam now. So we have decided to have a review of subjects for a week or so. This will help students revise the subjects and be better prepared for the exam.”
More than 8 lakhs students have registered for the Class 10 exams, which originally was to have taken place from 27 March 2020 to 9 April 2020. However, that was deferred as a result of the coronavirus pandemic scare. Rescheduled dates for the KSEEB SSLC board exams are expected to be revealed post 14 April 2020.
In the meanwhile, the Department of Primary and Secondary Education was earlier considering allowing the students to write the exams after taking precautionary measures such as wearing masks, using sanitisers in classrooms, and following the protocol for social distance while being seated and so on. Nevertheless, the exams were later deferred following the announcement of nationwide lockdown.
