The SSLC examination begins today in 2,770 examination centers across the state. As many as 8.77 lakh students will appear for the Karnataka SSLC examination.

Department of Public Instruction Commissioner Sowjanya and KSEEB director Yashoda Bopanna said that among the 8.77 lakh candidates, 4.69 lakh are boys, while 4.07 lakh are girls.

Earlier, Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board had decided not to allow students who arrive even 5 minutes late to the examination hall, but now under pressure from students, parents and the general public, the board has decided to relax the norm and allow students who arrive even 15 minutes late till 9.45 am.



To ensure that students and teachers will not face any difficulties in conducting the SSLC examination, the board has set up a helpline, which can be contacted on 080-23310075, 080-23310076 till 2.30 pm.

Answer sheet:

As per the revised examination pattern, students will be given the question and answer scripts separately. "Till last year, students could not take the question papers back home. But from this year, they can," an officer said.

Free bus service:

Students can use KSRTC and BMTC buses to reach their examination centers free of cost by producing their hall tickets to the bus crew.
