Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board (KSEEB)

The Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board (KSEEB) has been operating since the year 1966 as the state education board of Karnataka. The KSEEB has the responsibility of conducting exams for Class X of various affiliated schools, among others.

The KSEEB lays guidelines for the system of Secondary education in the Karnataka state. Also, the Board oversees a range of activities. These include prescribing syllabi, recognizing schools, conducting exams, along with providing support, leadership, and direction to all secondary educational institutions that come under its jurisdiction. Various open and private boards are operating independently from KSEEB in Karnataka, too.

The headquarters of the KSEEB is based in Bangalore, the capital city of the Indian state of Karnataka. The divisional secretaries (or ex-officio Joint Directors of the Board at Belgaum, Mysore, or Kalburgi) address all exam-related issues of the four educational divisions. Also, the KSEEB headquarters that are traced to Malleshwaram in Bangalore contain the office of the Secretary of the Bangalore educational division.

Almost 8.5 lakh students give the SSLC (Secondary School Leaving Certificate) exam, which is held during the months of March/April every year. The same exam is held by the Board in the month of June for students who fail the main exam. As many as 2.20 lakh students appear for the supplementary exam each year.

The Director is the head of the Board and he oversees all issues pertaining to SSLC exams.

The KSEEB has different wings for handling specific matters such as tenders, accounts, administrative matters, scrutiny of candidate applications, and evaluation. Nine scrutiny sections assess the SSLC applications of 34 educational districts. However, all wings of the Board have to access the common computer section.

The KSEEB has been working to digitalize the entire examination process since the years 2017-18. As a step in this direction, the Board has started accepting online registrations and uploading the admission tickets and results on the stipulated websites.

The Board has stopped using OMRs for communicating marks from evaluation centers. Instead, it is using the online portal for the same purpose. This not only saves time but also avoids the possibility of wrong scans because of faulty designs.

The Board also provides online services for verification of marks card, migration certificate, copies of marks card, photocopy, and re-evaluation of answer scripts. Even the DigiLocker app is available for students to download their respective mark sheets.

The Karnataka State Quality Assessment and Accreditation Council is another important wing of the KSEEB. The primary task of KSQAAC is to review and improve the quality of education offered at primary, higher primary, and secondary levels via surveys.
