Strict instructions have been issued as to the dos and don’ts for the students. Wearing masks and bringing an identity card apart from the hall ticket were some of them.

The exam on Sunday is being held after three students in Tamil Nadu committed suicide fearing failure and various political parties demanding postponing of the exam.
