This is being done to conduct hassle-free exams in the state.
The time table has been released on the official website kseeb.kar.nic.in and the admit cards has been released.

The letter regarding the Karnataka SSLC exams read, “There are close to 8.5 lakh students and 2.5 lakh staff involved. If we include parents who would drop their kids at the exam centre, around 30 lakh people will be involved in the process, making it a risky affair. Though the government has said that it will separate the students with fever or other ailments, will students admit to having a fever? What if they consume paracetamol and come to write exams?”
