Bengaluru: Amid fears of increasing COVID-19 cases in the State, the SSLC examinations have been successfully conducted.

The examinations which began on June 25 ended on July 3.

The examinations, scheduled in March, was postponed due to the COVID-19-induced lockdown. The government then planned to conduct the examinations from June 25 on the advice of experts.

Neighbouring States of Tamil Nadu, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh decided to cancel their exams and promote the students. In the State as well, there were demands that the examinations should not be conducted and there were protests for the same.
