THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Following the postponement of the Plus Two higher secondary and vocational higher secondary practical examinations, the SSLC IT practical examinations have also been postponed in the State. The Information Technology (IT) practical exam which was scheduled to start from May 5 as part of the SSLC examination held in March 2021 has been postponed.
The Director of Public Instruction (DPI) informed that the practical exam has been postponed.
The decision to put off the IT practical examinations comes in the wake of the spike in COVID-19 cases. The Health authorities had warned that with cases touching 33,000 and likely to shoot up to even 50,000, the conduct of the IT practical examinations would be difficult.
The IT practical examinations were scheduled to begin on May 5. The DPI further informed that the instructions regarding the IT practical exam will be given later.
