The Union home ministry on Wednesday had given permission to all states to open schools to conduct held-up Class 10 and Class 12 board exams while maintaining social distancing and safety precautions.
As per the information, along with the students appearing in the board exam, teachers and school staff will also have to wear masks and follow social distancing rules. Besides this, the states and Union Territories have been asked run special buses for students so that the social distancing rules are properly followed and students do not face any trouble.
As per the source, the containment zones will not have any examination centre. The examination centres will arrange screening and sanitization.
