Hyderabad: The Telangana State Board of Intermediate Education has rescheduled the examination timetable of the Intermediate Public Examination (IPE), scheduled to start from March 1, 2018.
In a press release on Tuesday, Board Secretary A Ashok said as per the earlier schedule, the theory examinations should start from March 1, 2018. However, the Andhra Pradesh Board of Intermediate Education (APBIE) had announced IPE examination schedule starting from February 28, 2018. As the syllabi of the intermediate course in the optional subjects is common to both TSBIE and APBIE, there is a possibility of sending and posting the question papers of APBIE on social media sites.
And, it might create false rumors of leakage of question paper and might create panic and confusion among the students of Telangana. To avoid the imminent risk factors, the TSBIE has decided to start the exams from February 28, 2018, instead of March 3, 2018, as notified earlier, he said.
