VIJAYAPURA: “Students of Classes 10 and 12, who appeared for board examinations last year, are also considered as corona warriors,” said Minister for Primary and Secondary Education S Suresh Kumar. At a meeting to review preparations for SSLC and PU board examinations in Bagalkot, Chikkodi and Vijayapura at ZP Bhavan on Wednesday, the minister spoke about students who secured high marks despite facing financial difficulties last year.

“The government will release a new Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for the smooth conduct of the board exams, where PUC exams will start on May 24 and SSLC on June 21. Even the Union Public Service Commission had ‘borrowed’ our SOP to conduct civil service examinations,” he said, thanking all the officials, teachers and non-teaching staff for the success.

I have already conducted a meeting with stakeholders and after discussing with higher authorities, a final call will be taken soon,” he said.
