Thiruvananthapuram: General education minister V Sivankutty said that the Kerala SSLC results will be declared on May 20. He also informed that the higher secondary results will be declared before May 25.
A total of 4,19,554 students appeared for the Kerala State Board’s SSLC exam this year.
The Minister had already declared that grace marks would be given to students who excel in extracurricular activities this year. It should be noted that due to the pandemic, grace marks were not given to students in the last couple of years. Students who excel in state, national and international level competitions, and members of Scouts and Guides, Student Police Cadets, National Cadet Corps, Junior Red Cross, and National Service Scheme will be eligible for grace marks.
In a press conference, the education minister said that schools will reopen on June 1. He also said that a new committee is being formed for regulating plus one seat allotment.
“This year's state wide school reopening ceremony ‘pravesanolsavam’ will be officially inaugurated by CM Pinaray Vijayan at Thiruvananthapuram Malayinkeezhu LP school. Arrangements are being made in schools across the state to make the occasion a grand affair,” the minister said.
“Schools will be giving importance to academic excellence and will be made friendly for differently-abled students,” he added.
“80 percent of the textbooks have already been distributed among the students in the state, most of the students have received their uniforms as well,” Sivankutty told the media.
A high level meeting of ministers will be convened before reopening the schools.
