The SSLC examination began on Monday amidst much fanfare with several school managements deciding that they would decorate the schools to give it a festive look.

However, as students began coming out of exam centres after completing their first paper of the 2021 Karnataka SSLC examinations, cops had a tough time warding off crowds in front of schools.

Most students and parents left the centre soon based on repeated instructions of the police officials.

“We were worried if our children would be safe at the centre and outside in the wake of the pandemic situation, but all guidelines were adhered to before and after the exam,” Sindhura M, a parent was quoted by Indianexpress.com outside a centre in Bengaluru’s Mathikere.

As many as 8.76 lakh candidates have registered for the SSLC examination. The examination has been cut short this year due to the second wave of Covid-19 infections. Students have to attempt a multiple-choice question paper and have to shade the right option on the OMR sheets.

Today, the examination for core subjects - science, social science and mathematics were conducted. The exam ended at 1:30 pm.

On Wednesday, students will have to write three of their language papers. Each of the subjects will be of 40 marks each.

As many as 33 Covid-19 positive students took up the examination in Covid care centres.

Apart from having a health screening centre at all examination centres, heads of the centres ensured that physical distance was maintained and only 12 students were seated in a classroom and one student was seated on a bench. There is a huge increase in the number of examination centres and staff deployed on examination duty this year.
