The National Testing Agency (NTA) has created a detailed protocol on how to hold the exercise in which nearly 15 lakh students could participate while also following safety and social distancing norms.
To avoid crowd at the examination centre entrance due to candidates reaching together, they will be given staggered time slots for reporting. In case, any staff person and candidate is observed to be having above normal temperature or displaying any symptom of COVID-19 suspect, they will be placed in separate Isolation Room.
Candidates will be permitted to carry only:
-Mask on face
-Gloves on hand
-Personal transparent water bottle
-Personal small hand sanitizer (50 ml)
-Exam related documents as instructed (Admit Card, ID card, etc)
-Body pat frisking will not be done.
A table of approx. of around 3 feet width should be kept in Registration room or hall. Candidate will display the documents for Exam Functionary to view without touching the document.
Manual attendance with signature (while wearing gloves) will be taken. No thumb impressions will be taken.
The practice of physical movement of Invigilators inside the room will be minimized.
The practice of water dispenser will be discontinued. Personal water bottles will be permitted at the table and should be brought by the candidate.
The gloves and masks should be disposed in a pedal push covered bin at the Examination Centre and outside the examination hall only, the NTA guidelines say.
