Practical Exam Evaluation

The evaluation of practical exams for the Kerala HSE will commence on January 22. This phase is crucial in determining a student’s performance. It’s essential for students to prepare their practicals diligently to achieve the best results.

Model Exams

To help students prepare effectively, the Kerala board has scheduled model exams. Plus Two model exams will be held from February 15 to 21, offering students an opportunity to gauge their readiness for the actual HSC exams. Similarly, SSLC model exams will take place between February 19 and 23. These model exams are a great way for students to assess their knowledge and make necessary improvements before the final exams.

Important Announcements

The Kerala education department has announced that the draft state curriculum framework will be launched on September 21. Additionally, the board has postponed the Plus One improvement exams to October 9 due to concerns related to the Nipah virus. These exams will continue until October 16. It’s crucial for students to stay updated with any further announcements or changes.

It’s worth noting that the state government has taken proactive measures in light of the Nipah virus outbreak. All schools, colleges, and educational institutes in Kerala’s Kozhikode will remain closed until September 24 to contain the spread of the virus. The Kozhikode administration has identified seven village areas as containment zones to control the situation. These areas include Atanchery, Maruthonkara, Tiruvallur, Kuttiyadi, Kayakkodi, Villyapalli, and Kavilumpara.

The Nipah virus can cause mild to severe illness, with severe cases leading to significant brain swelling (encephalitis) and, in some instances, even death. To minimize the risk, local government offices have been instructed by the district collector to operate with minimal staff. Banks, government institutions, schools, and Anganwadis are directed to remain closed temporarily.

Students and parents are encouraged to stay informed about the latest developments related to exams and health advisories in Kerala. Proper preparation and adherence to safety measures are crucial during these challenging times.
