In Puttur, about five survivors of endosulfan poisoning are taking the exam. The exam will be held in 99 different locations.

Shamanth VM, nodal officer for SSLC examination, DK district, told that the SSLC examination process is back to normal this year. When the exam was held during pandemic days, the number of examination centres was increased, and only 12 students were allowed to take the exam in a single classroom. This was done in order to keep a social distance. However, it is now back to normal, with a maximum of 20 candidates allowed in a class. The examination will take place in 1,498 classrooms.

Similarly, the number of examination centres too have been reduced to 99 from earlier. Mangalore South has the highest number of centres (23), followed by Mangalore North (20). Sullia and Moodbidri have six and five centres, respectively. Close to 2,000 staff including 99 examination centre superintendents will help in the smooth conduct of the examination.

According to Sudhaka K, DDPI, all of the centres are equipped with CCTV cameras for surveillance. The department has provided washrooms, drinking water, and other amenities for the candidates. Several meetings have been held with the deputy commissioner of Dakshina Kannada and exam superintendents, who have been given specific instructions on how to conduct exams smoothly.
