Justice B V Nagarathna and Justice Hanchate Sanjeev Kumar said that the board has followed all the guidelines to ensure safe conduction of the exam. The court has also said that no student will be forced to attend the exam.

S V Singre Gowda had filed a petition in the Karnataka High Court and asked to cancel the exam due to the pandemic situation. His petition was dismissed.
