These 13 disabled students wrote the examination in the special examination centres set up by the district administration at Ramakunjeshwara Degree College and Ramakunjeshwara Kannada Medium School.

Deputy Commissioner K.V. Rajendra took the initiative to set up the examination centre in Ramakunja following a representation about difficulty in taking the disabled children to the centre set up in Thenkila in Puttur taluk.

Each one of these disabled students, except Sukesh,. were given scribes, who were Class 9 students of Ramakunja Group of Institutions. Sukesh, who is visually challenged, opted to write without a scribe.
