Kerala board exams for Class 10 and 12 which had been postponed due to Covid19 lockdown will be held from today. Special measures are being taken for the safety of students and teachers since the exams are taking place amidst the Coronavirus pandemic.
Students coming from containment zones or those with family members under home quarantine will get separate seating arrangements. Students coming to Kerala from other states will need to undergo a 14-day quarantine and special arrangements would be made so they can sit for board exams. Every teacher will have to wear both face masks and gloves while every student will be given face masks to wear. After the exam, the answer sheets would be kept in the exam centres for seven days and the fire force will disinfect the schools.
