The Karnataka government recently announced that SSLC or 10th standard examinations will be held in the third week of July while cancelling the second year pre-university exams in view of the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The exam, which will take place in the third week of July, will have one multi-choice question paper for mathematics, science and social science and one more question paper for languages, Karnataka Primary and Secondary Education Minister S Suresh Kumar said at a press conference.

"The multi-choice question paper for 40 marks will be easy and straight and there will not be any indirect questions," the minister said.

He also said that there will be supplementary examinations for those students affected by COVID-19.

The Karnataka SSLC exams 2021 were earlier slated to be conducted from June 21 to July 5, 2021. However, they were later postponed due to the pandemic. The revised timetable for the exam will be declared on the official website-sslc.karnataka.gov.in

Meanwhile, the Karnataka Common Entrance Test (KCET) for various vocational courses, including engineering, is scheduled to be conducted on August 28 and 29.

"The CET exam will take place on August 28 and 29. Each subject will carry 60 marks," Deputy Chief Minister C N Ashwath Narayan said at a press conference on Tuesday.

The Maths and Biology exams will be held on the first day while Physics and Chemistry on the second day. Registration will commence from June 15, he said, adding that the PUC marks will not be taken into account.

Narayan further said students will be required to score a minimum mark to clear the entrance test.
