SSLC exams end

July 3, 2020

Mysore/Mysuru: SSLC exams (2019-20), which had caused concern among the students, their parents and the teachers alike, amidst the outbreak of the deadly COVID-19, formally ended today with the Third Language paper (Hindi / Kannada / English / Arabic / Persian / Urdu / Sanskrit / Konkani / Tulu) held smoothly at all centres across the city and district without any concerns and anxious moments.

The exam which was initially scheduled to take place from Mar.27, was deferred after the outbreak of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and the subsequent nationwide lockdown. The Government after much deliberations, ended the uncertainty over the conduct of the exam by announcing a fresh schedule from June 25 to July 4. However, for all academic purposes, the exams formally ended today (July 3), as only practical and oral exams are scheduled to take place tomorrow (July 4) for JTS (Junior Technical School) candidates, which will not take place in                                        the district.

The exam was held in a total of 139 centres in Mysuru district, including 48 in city. Over 38,000 students appeared for the exam. Now that the exams are over, the students have heaved a sigh of relief. They are now  anxiously awaiting the results, which are likely to be announced in the first week of next month.
