Karnataka: SSLC exams to be held from June 21-July 5 | Hubballi News – Times of India


DHARWAD: The SSLC exams for the academic year 2020-21 will be held from June 21 to July 5. Announcing the timetable here on Monday, primary and secondary education minister S Suresh Kumar said the latest timetable supersedes the tentative one issued on January 27.
The government released the final timetable after inviting objections to the tentative one by February 26 (one month’s time to air objections). He said care has been taken to ensure that students will get at least a day’s gap between the exams of core subjects.
“This time, the exam will be different from the previous ones as the syllabus had to be shrunk due to the lockdown and the closure of schools till January,” he said.
The syllabus has been shrunk in such a way that the students do not feel the pressure of the exam.
To conduct the exam and improve the passing percentage, a workshop for headmasters will be held in each district, and best practices will be adopted, the minister said.
On reopening of schools for class 1 to 5, the minister said that if everything had gone right, primary schools should have started on Monday. But considering that there is a surge in Covid-19 positive cases in six states, including Karnataka, the department has decided to take a final call in the next seven days, after consultation with the health department, he added.
