According to a DNA report, the Karnataka government has already decided to postpone the Class 10 SSLC Board Exam 2021 because of the coronavirus situation in the state.

It must be noted that earlier, Karnataka had postponed the second year Pre-University Exam (PUC) or Class 12 final exams and promoted first-year students. Due to the COVID-19 scenario in the state, Karnataka Common Entrance Test (KCET) 2021, which is held for Engineering admission, was also postponed on May 12.
