The exams were conducted from June 25 to July 4 at 2,879 centres across Karnataka amid opposition from several quarters due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“All the DDPIs, and field educators will be guided by video presentations explaining the project plans. There is pressure to restart schools but we are waiting for the road map from the Central Government. In the meantime, we are trying to reach the children with the scholastic project as our children should not be left behind in learning”, he said.
