While class 10th exams are slated to end in 12 working days, the 12th board exams will continue till the next 15 working days. Notably, this is the first time in two years when students will write all of their papers in offline mode as the exams for 2020 could not be completed due to the onset of the pandemic. In view of the raging COVID crisis in 2021, the state government had to cancel both these examinations and promote all the students last year as well.
To avoid any chance of cheating in the examination, the authorities have installed CCTV cameras at all the centres to monitor any unusual movement of students. In addition to this, special security has also been deployed at the centres to make sure that the examination are conducted smoothly across the state.
