Just after the Central Board of Secondary Education cancelled off year’s Class 12 board examinations on Tuesday, the Karnataka government has clarified a decision on how and whether to conduct second-year pre-university exams will be taken soon.
“A suitable decision will be taken soon considering the situation in the state, also in the interest of the students’ health and future,” Primary and Secondary Education Minister S Suresh Kumar said. The minister is likely to meet education and health experts, apart from other stakeholders, in the coming days.
“We will conduct exams in sync with the duration of CBSE Class 12 exams. The pattern will be decided by the state after CBSE announces its mode of exams,” said an official on Tuesday hours before the cancellation of the CBSE exams was announced. The Karnataka government had also decided to examine the possibility of administering Covid-19 vaccines to II PU students before conducting board examinations later this year.
