The Supreme Court has asked the state government to notify its decision to hold grade 12 exams by Thursday. The top court filed an application to cancel the state exams on Tuesday.
During the hearing, the Supreme Court asked about the security measures. Andhra Pradesh Permanent Attorney Mahfooz Nazki said the state government would generally do the physical exams.
He said a maximum of 15 to 20 students are allowed in a hall. The social distance of at least five meters would be maintained. He went on to say that the tenth graders were graded and there were no comparative grades.
Unlike CBSE and ICSE, the State Education Department had no control or visibility of internal grades, and grades obtained in grade 12 were taken into account in determining EAMCET merit.
The court then asked him to make this affidavit, stating that it would allow the government to hold exams if it believed there was sufficient security.
The court also found that in the event of death it would hold the state accountable.
