As per the rules, only 12 students will be allowed in each classroom/exam hall while students will be provided with hand sanitizers and access to hand wash stations to maintain hygiene. All classrooms will also be sanitized, the officials said. 

These supplementary exams were originally scheduled to be conducted in July and were postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Students who apply for supplementary exams are those who failed to clear the regular batch of exams held in February and March. 

While both HSC and SSC supplementary exams begin on November 20, HSC exams will go on until December 10 while the SSC exams end on December 5.

Sandeep Sangave, Secretary of Mumbai Divisional Board spoke about some of the precautions taken to ensure the exams are conducted safely. “We have provided hand sanitisers to centres and have also provided them allowance to get the premises sanitised. Hand wash and thermal guns are also provided in each centre. Similarly, instead of 25 students per class, this time we have allowed only 12 students in a class to ensure physical distancing,” he said.

However, the board doesn’t have a concrete plan in place for a situation wherein a student attending the exam shows symptoms of the virus upon entry. Sangave said that necessary measures will be taken if this happens. “If such a case comes to us and a student has to be isolated, we shall ensure he/she writes the exams with proper care and isolation,” he said.

HSC exams will be conducted in a total of 103 centres whereas the SSC exams will be held in 95 centres that come under the Mumbai Division. It is said that over 12,000 students have registered for SSC exams while 22,000 have reportedly registered for HSC examinations.
