BANGALORE: Close to 8.39 lakh students will appear for the Secondary School Leaving Certificate (SSLC) examinations across 3003 centres in the State commencing today till April 16. Considering the recent instances of question paper leaks and postponements of the II PUC examinations, students are advised not to pay heed to any rumours.

“Students must have put in hard preparation for the exams. I advise students to not have any fear or premonitions. There is no reason for students to get distracted with the recent incidents of question paper leaks. I urge the students to perform well and get good results. We are geared up to ensure no untoward incidents take place during the exams,” said D Venkateshaiah, Director of Exams - Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board (KSEEB).

As a security measure, the KSEEB has identified 273 centres as sensitive and 73 centres as highly sensitive. Apart from sitting and flying squads, the Board will follow the Election Commission model of deputing the officers to different taluks other than their own to ensure objective supervision. Gazetted officers have been roped in as ‘observers’ to keep a check on malpractice.

To help students overcome anxiety and exam tension, a helpline started by the KSEEB is active from March 19 from 3pm to 5pm. Experts from Nimhans, Samudra and KSEEB officials are ready to help. The helpline 080-23312245/46 will be active up to April 16.
