The Karnataka school board has observed an increase in absenteeism in Secondary School Leaving Certificate (SSLC) examinations this year. According to the official announcement, nearly more than 20,000 students were absent during the first exam with the number remaining above 10,000 for subsequent papers. This is the highest number in the last five sessions.

In a media statement, Minister for Primary and Secondary Education, BC Nagesh attributed the absenteeism to the private candidates and a large number of students had registered as private candidates because they thought there won’t be exams this year, too, and they would get easily promoted.

Due to the covid restrictions the board lifted the minimum 75 per cent attendance rule from this session due to which a greater number of students were allowed to sit in exams compared to previous years. 

The report  states that students were expecting the examination to be held like last year, having multiple choice questions and promotion of all students due to the pandemic, but the scenario changed which created a fear in the minds of students and they preferred to bunk exams.
