The Board of Secondary Education (BSE), Odisha Friday announced its timetable for the 2017-Matriculation (Class-10) examinations. BSE president Sukant Kumar Das said the examinations for regular students, as announced earlier, will begin across the state on February 28 and end on March 10.
“Filling up of application forms for the examination will begin from November 1,” Das said adding more than six lakh students were expected to appear for the examinations next year. The details of how to fill the application form have been released online.
Confusion over the examination dates had arisen because of the state panchayat elections, which are due in February next year. The State Election Commission (SEC) had reportedly asked the Board not to fix any examinations in the month of February 2017. The Board, after discussing with the state government, has now fixed the examination timetable.
