Mangaluru, Aug 31, 2019: The long-pending demand of the department of primary and secondary education to merge the Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board (KSEEB) and Department of Pre-University Education under a single board will be fulfilled by December 2019.


The single board will conduct both the Secondary School Leaving Certificate (SSLC) II PUC examinations from 2020.

According to information the department of primary and secondary education, Minister S Suresh Kumar is keen on considering the proposal, which he discussed at the review meeting he chaired.

Officials present at the meeting said off the record that the 2020 final board examinations will be conducted under a single board.
