Students appearing for their Class 10 examination in Kerala have three more papers to write even as the practical exams for students of Class 12, who appeared for their last exam on Monday, have been postponed amid a raging pandemic.
At St Mary’s School in Thiruvananthapuram, one of the exam centres, separate classrooms have been arranged for 11 students who have tested positive for coronavirus and for 13 students who are in reverse quarantine – a week’s isolation period after turning negative for COVID 19.
This has been the drill from the start of the examinations in early April, when cases were comparatively low in Kerala, even though several other states were reporting steep spikes, and before the rest of the board exams were cancelled across the country.
These exams have involved tremendous co-ordination between teachers, health workers on the ground and governing bodies. But the concerns remain.
Buhari, who is a headmaster, is waiting for his son to come out after his last exam. On Friday, he learnt that the student who shared the bench with his son on Thursday, has tested positive.
