Students and parents welcomed the move. Rachappa, parent of a class 10 student who missed the exam, said, “Due to health reasons, my daughter was long absent from classes. We also failed to submit her health certificate to the school in time. As a result, she missed the examination. However, now the KSEAB has given an opportunity to write the exam, and it will be helpful to thousands of students like my daughter. She is preparing well for the examination and we hope that she will be succeed.”
