Karnataka SSLC, PUC Exams Postponed: As per media reports, Karnataka Government has decided to postpone Karnataka SSLC Exam 2020 for 10th Class students and Karnataka PUC Exams 2020 for 11th and 12th Class students further due to COVID-19 lockdown. The report claims that the state education department has decided to further postpone the SSLC Exam and PUC Exam 2020, looking at the current situation due to Coronavirus outbreak and keeping in mind the well-being of students. According to a report published by Deccan Herald newspaper, the State Education Minister S Suresh Kumar has confirmed that no exams, including SSLC / 10th Class to Engineering exam will be held in the month of April 2020.
The clarification regarding holding of exams comes in the wake of concerns raised by students and parents, who are expected to appear for pending or remaining SSLC Exam or PUC Exams in the state. Earlier, many parents and students had reached out to the State Education Department to confirm if the remaining exam papers will be held immediate after the lockdown is lifted on 14th April 2020. In response, the department seems to have decided to postpone the exams further and not hold any papers in the month of April 2020.
However, students must note that this information is currently only based on media report and respective boards i.e. KSEEB, which holds the SSLC Exam 2020 and Department of PUE, Karnataka, which hold PUC Exam 2020; are yet issue any formal notification to confirm the development. Once an official notification is released, a direct link to the same would be provided on this page.
The decision to postpone Karnataka SSLC Exam 2020 and 2nd PUC Exam 2020 until further notice has been taken by the state government, keeping in mind the safety and health of the students. State Education Department officials have noted that despite the lifting of lockdown on 14th April 2020, it will still take some time for boards to restore normalcy and hold exams. In the report, the official has also been quoted as saying “It is risky to conduct any examinations at least till mid-May.” However, soon the state education minister is expected to hold a formal meeting with the department officials and other experts to chart out a way to help students cope with the current situation.
