SC allows Kerala to conduct offline exams for class 11 students

The Supreme Court on Friday allowed the Kerala government to hold offline class 11 exams after the state assured the top court that all Covid precautions will be followed at schools. The court also referred to reports that cited the unlikely possibility of a third wave to lift its stay on reopening of schools in the southern state.

“We hope and trust that all precautions and necessary steps will be taken by authorities and will pose no risk to children,” the bench said.

“Earlier we had intervened because there was the possibility of the third wave in September. Now as per reports that is not going to happen immediately,” it noted.
