Bengaluru: SSLC exam guidelines - Two masks for students, thermal scanners


Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, May 29: Minister S Suresh Kumar revealed that every student appearing for SSLC examination will be provided with two face masks. He also revealed that thermal scanners will be provided to all the examination centres by the examination board. Kumar also said that various institutions and organizations like Bharat Scouts and Guides have joined hands in holding SSLC examination in a smooth way.

The minister said that although the examination board has undertaken all precautions, responsibilities of educational institutions to hold the examination in a safe environment has increased. Maintaining a one-metre distance between students in examination centres, maintaining social distance when entering the examination room should be strictly followed, he stated. He also asked the examination centres to keep additional rooms ready to enable students who are ill in the interests of other students. He also said that the institutions should coordinate with department officials to undertake a health check of students and also to take interest in allowing the children of migrant workers to appear for the examination as a special case.

The institution heads have been asked to meet every student and their parents before the commencement of the examination in an attempt to instil confidence in them about holding the examination in a safe environment, he requested. He said that even the high court has supported the decision of the education department to hold SSLC examination in the interests of the future of the students, by disposing of the public interest litigation.

As per the guidelines, no examination centre can be opened in containment zones, only 18 to 20 students can be accommodated in a room, at least two rooms should be set aside to accommodate children suffering from cold, fever, cough and other symptoms. In case there is a shortage, rooms from nearby schools can be used. Children are allowed to travel free of cost in government buses. Two children will be seated at each desk, and there will be a three feet distance between two desks. A health centre for every 300 students will be set up. Paramedical staff, Bharat Scouts and Guides' two volunteers will be deployed. Sanitizer and face masks are compulsory for all students. Students not wearing masks will be provided with masks by health staff. Temperatures will be measured with thermal scanners. Children of the hostel, residential schools and migrant children will be allowed to appear for the examination in nearby centres. Separate examination room for students from containment zones will be arranged. In case students of containment zones are unable to appear for the examination, they will be treated as fresh candidates in the supplementary examination.

    They are selfish people without knowledge that decided to conduct exame in such horrible situation it is game of die be careful not to be game over. There are several other methods such online exam and all Indian people has Mobile they can conduct MCQS why risk on people's lives and if something happen no one answered people

    Conduct exams after July
    Not a wise decision. Even if social distancing is maintained, exams will still take 1-2 hours minimum assuming you are reducing the usual "3hr" paper. So, if even one kid has Covid, everyone will be quarantined. If the invigilator has Covid, still the same.
    Let the peaking of the cases pass. The future of the children is more important than this SSLC exam. Covid infected people will have long term organ damage in the future depending on the severity of the disease.
    Let's not be hasty. India needs it's healthy new generation work for 15-20 years from now not a diseased handicapped lot.

    Govt should not hurry in such situations because there are lots of students appearing for exms and teachers as their supervisor. students cant keep mask on their faces for 2 hours and ol every now and then sanitize their hand already they will be in so much pressure and scared too. Better take exms in month of july .

Its a huge gathering of 8.5 to 9 lakh students their parents, examiners n many others dont know why the education minister is not able understand n putting everybodys life at risk. If anything goes wrong whozz going to take the reposibilty of these poor people.

    Respected education Minister, We humbly ask you to take good decisions, it's our life and death situations. Don't frighten the little hearts even more, by prolonging the exam in just postponing the problems to greater risks...
    So please take bold decision, if at all you need to cancel the exams.

    my suggestion is to promote them to the next class but asses them on their next year's performance. exams will burden everybody on their duties

    Will the children of Education minister or any other ministers appear for the exams along with other children or will be given question paper to complete at home and submit. i dont think any ministers will risk the life of their kids as the life of their kids is precious . Anyways after SSLC no child is going to be a doctor or Engineer straightway . Hence why cant they be promoted to next standard based on their reports for the previous academic year?

    80% of the students can easily opt to go for IGNOU tertiary studies...

    ...and completely forget about these SSLC exams.

    No minister can force a student to attend exams.

    Better to divide students according to their register numbers Even and odd so that each batch will have equal number of students problem - One bach may get easy question paper , other batch may get difficult question paper .
    better to increase number of centres

    What is the hurry for our Govt and Education Minister to conduct SSLC exam by risking the life of students.? Why can't they promote the students based on their performance of academic year. ? How to enlighten the brainless ministers and Education board. ?
