Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala education minister V Sivankutty here on Thursday said that SSLC and higher secondary students who excelled in extracurricular activities will be awarded grace marks this year.

Pointing out that the grace mark system will be regularised soon, the minister opined that grace marks were not awarded in a scientific manner in previous years.

“Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, grace marks were not awarded in the last two years. Excellence in competitions at state, national or international levels, scouts and guides, student police cadets (SPC), junior red cross and National Service Scheme (NSS) will be considered for awarding grace marks,” Sivankutty said.

Further, the minister added that students in Brahmapuram need not be concerned about their exams in any manner. “All measures have been taken to deal with emergency situations. The education director has been instructed in this regard,” he said.

“Drinking water has been arranged in all the examination halls. Valuation of answer sheets and tabulation will be held once the exams are over,” he told Mathrubhumi News.

The paper valuation will be held from April 3 to 26 and the results will be declared by May second week.
