For the conduct of Matriculation and Inter examinations of the Bihar board, strong arrangements have to be made at the examination centers to protect against Covid-19 infection. The annual examination of Inter in the district is to be conducted from February 1 to 14 and for Matric from February 17 to 24. Strong precautionary action is to be taken at all the examination centers to prevent the infection of Covid-19 to all the examinees appearing in the examinations.

Separate arrangements will be made for the candidates suffering from cold, cough, and fever in the examination centers to sit. Arrangements may be made in special halls for sick candidates to sit so that other examinees are not affected by the infection. While entering the examination centers and examination halls, it is to be ensured that all the examinees and personnel will definitely reach the center by wearing masks.

Masks will be 5 percent more at each examination center:

Corona guidelines will be strictly followed at all the examination centers of the district. The board has released the guidelines for the exam. The District Education Officer has directed all the examination center superintendents to make arrangements for five percent more masks than the total number of examinees at each examination center. If any student does not come wearing a mask, it will be provided by the school. Apart from this, all the rooms should be sanitized before the commencement of the examination. At the same time, the center will have to be sanitized even before the start of the second shift examination.

Two examinees on a bench:

In order to determine the accommodation capacity of the examination centers, the examination should be conducted by seating a maximum of two candidates on each bench according to the social distance between them. The arrangement will be made for two examinees to sit on a bench so that the rule of physical distancing can be followed. If sufficient number of rooms are not available, then arrangements can be made for the seating of the examinees in the verandah. Apart from this, the students can also be seated by putting up a pandal. There is nothing in the guideline to bar any candidate from taking the examination.
