INTER ISSUE:Secondary Education Minister K. Parthasarathy with political leaders at the all-party meeting in Hyderabad on Friday.

HYDERABAD: The government is likely to reschedule the Intermediate English Paper II examination from March 10 to March 22. An official announcement is likely to be made in the Assembly on Saturday.

After an all-party meeting on the issue, Minister for Secondary Education K. Parthasarathy told reporters that all political parties requested the government to postpone the examination in view of the ‘Million March' proposed by the Telangana joint action committee (TJAC).

He said that their views will be conveyed to the Chief Minister and a final decision announced on Saturday.

“The government is yet to decide whether the exam has to be postponed only in the twin cities and the neighbouring Ranga Reddy district or entire Telangana region or the entire State,” he said.

He said the government has also decided to write to CBSE and ICSE Boards to postpone their exams scheduled on March 10 for Class X and Class XII students.

CBSE has scheduled the Social Science exam of Class X, while the ICSE has scheduled Environmental Science of Class X and Commerce exam of Class XII on the same day.

About 1.40 lakh students are appearing for Intermediate exam on March 10 in Hyderabad and Ranga Reddy districts.

Nearly 8,000 students from the city will take the CBSE exams on the same day.

The Board of Intermediate Education (BIE) officials, who were present in the all-party meeting, suggested to the Minister that the exam can be postponed in the twin cities or the entire Telangana region instead of the entire State as they would face some logistic issues like finding the same exam centres due to prior commitments.

Three sets

The BIE prepares three different sets of question papers for the exams and officials were of the view that one of the sets can be used for the exam, if postponed.
