The Punjab Education Minister Aruna Chaudhary informed that re-appear exam of PSEB 12th standard will be held on June 23.
The Minister said due to university admissions and many other factors, the re-appear exam will be conducted early.
The result of the re-appear exam, for which centres will be made at sub-divisional level, would be declared in 10 days. She also informed that the PSEB has been instructed to ensure implementation of this decision.

She also said 122 schools where the students scored more than 90 per cent will be awarded with appreciation letters.
