Hyderabad: A total of 19.6 lakh students will be appearing for Intermediate annual theory examinations this year, marking a slight decrease compared to last year. More than 19.7 lakh students have appeared for Inter exams in 2013 May. This includes both first year and second year.
Out of these 19.6 lakh students, 18.08 lakh were general (regular) students where as the remaining 1.52 lak were private candidates. Nearly 2661 centres have been set up to conduct the exams, according to Ram Shanker Naik, Secretary of Inter Board.
The theory examinations will commence from March 12 onwards and end on March 28. On March 12, the first year students will have to take English Paper I instead of second language and on March 13, English Paper II, will be conducted for Senior Inter students. The second language paper I for Junior Inter will be on March 14 and Paper II for Senior Inter on March 15.
All exams will be held from 9 am to 12 noon. All examinations will end on March 29 and the results are expected to be declared in just one month.
Meanwhile, the practical examinations for Senior Intermediate students concluded on Tuesday. The practical exams started on February 12 went off peacefully and the Board of Intermediate Education has not reported even a single irregularity from any part of the state, perhaps with a view not to give scope for any sort of misunderstanding among people at this hour of transition.
On the last day (20th day) i.e. on Tuesday, practical exams were held at 1051 centres to as many as 5416 students all over the State.
The JEE Mains (Offline) will be held on April 6, exactly ten days after the completion of Inter exams and the EAMCET would be held on May 17, nearly 20 days after the exams. The Board has been making plans to declare the results before the last week of May so that the supplementary exams can also be completed to make the students apply for the EAMCET counseling.
There is almost no possibility of change of Inter exam dates as the Election Commission is likely to hold polls only in May, according to officials. But there is a chance that the valuation may be hit due to paucity of staff since some of the junior lecturers and other staff may have to be deputed for election work, they said.
