The Madhya Pradesh Board of Secondary Education’s Class 12 exams began offline on Thursday following COVID-19-appropriate behavior for more than seven lakh students, an official said. During the last academic year, tests were not conducted physically in the wake of the coronavirus epidemic and students were assessed on the basis of their previous results and internal test scores.
With the Kovid-19 case now on the decline, students are now taking part in exams at various centers set up across the state, Education Board Public Relations Officer Mukesh Malviya told PTI.
Special arrangements have been made for students with flu-like symptoms to write their papers in a separate room, the official said. Students and other staff are following COVID-19-appropriate behavior and adhering to mask-wearing rules and other guidelines, he said.
A total of 7,14,932 students, including some speech and hearing-impaired children, have been enrolled for the exams, which will end on March 12, the official said. The tests are being conducted at 3,586 centers, of which 287 have been identified as sensitive and 357 as highly sensitive, he added.
