SSC students told not to come in uniforms

The SSC public exams begin on Monday across 5,854 centres in the state. Over 13.63 lakh students will take the exams that will go on till April 8. The exams are scheduled from 9.30 am to 12 noon.
As many as 905 “problematic centres” were identified across the state and officials have taken special measures to check malpractice at these centres.
However, in nearly 460 centres students will have to sit on the floor and write the exams due to lack of furniture. Students will not be allowed entry to the centres if they wear school uniform, said Ms Pronoti Suhasini Kavoori, director of the SSC Board.
For the first time, students will be awarded grades this year instead of marks, as part of the reforms introduced by the state government to reduce stress among students.
Also, bar-coding method has been introduced for all the papers to maintain confidentiality and to check irregularities during valuation of papers.
Students will be awarded A, A+, B, B+, C, C+, D, D+ grades in the descending order from this year. Although there will be no “fail category”, but students who fail to get any of the eight grades above will get E-grade and they will have to reappear for the exams.
A control room has been created in the office of the director of government exams to help examinees.
Students throughout the state taking the SSC exam can avail free transport to the exam centre on RTC buses by showing their hall ticket.
