What are the Norms related to Retesting due to COVID-19?

In the first SOP issued for conducting exams amid COVID, the ministry had allowed candidates who showed symptoms for COVID-19 to be seated for the exam in a separate examination room. However, this was changed in a revised version.

The revised SOP directed exam authorities to direct any candidate showing any symptoms of COVID to the nearest health centres. The exam conducting authorities were also given the responsibility of arranging alternate means for such candidates to take the test or conduct their test on a different date.
