Nearly 8.5 lakh students on Thursday appeared for their 10th grade Secondary School Leaving Certificate (SSLC) exams across 2,879 centers in Karnataka.
Students waited in long queues to get their screening done and complete other formalities before taking their exams.

My best wishes to all children appearing for SSLC exams. Follow government guidelines on wearing masks and sanitizers, maintain social distancing. Write your exam with confidence, Karnataka chief minister B.S. Yediyurappa said in a post on Twitter.

The decision to conduct exams was criticized by political parties, parents, and guardians who accused the government of trying to use young students to prove a point that the covid-19 situation in the state was under control.
