Amid the pandemic, students are allowed to wear masks, gloves, and take hand sanitizers and water bottles into the examination halls.

Students were instructed to arrive at the examination center in batches at 11 am, 12 pm and 1 pm due the pandemic restrictions. The arrival times were specified on the hall tickets of candidates.

Similarly, each examination hall was to accommodate only 12 students, according to the National Testing requirement.
