This is being done to avoid unnecessary travel to the designated examination centre in the wake of COVID-19 outbreak. A lot of students have gone back to their hometowns due to the current lockdown.
The KSEEB will make special arrangements for masks, sanitizers and thermal scanners to take care of the safety of the students as well as teachers. A new seating arrangement will also be made to make sure that the students follow social distancing.
