II PUC exams conclude

With this, the fortnight-long ordeal for more than six lakh students also came to an end. While no untoward incident was reported anywhere in the State, students were debarred for indulging in malpractice almost every day of the annual examination.

On the last day, four examinees were caught in Belgaum district whereas three students were picked up in Gadag district on charges of copying. While Bijapur and Gulbarga districts accounted for two debarments each, one student each was caught in Davangere, Koppal, Raichur, Tumkur, and Bellary districts. The student caught in Bellary district was found guilty of impersonation, the Department of Pre-University Education (PUE) said.

Evaluation of question papers will begin on April 8 at 41 centres across the State. Two days before that, the scripts would be in possession of Deputy Chief Evaluators.
While 20 centres will be located in Bangalore, six of them will be in Mysore, five in Belgaum, four in Mangalore and three each in Davangere and Shimoga.

More than 15,000 evaluators will go through the answer scripts. The results are expected in the first week of May.

No fun for science students

Science students will have little time to relax as most of them will have to prepare for the CET 2011 scheduled for April 27-28. Their counterparts in arts and commerce streams, however, will look forward to relax and have fun.
