The Telangana Board of Intermediate Education will conduct the Intermediate Public Examination (IPE) March 2018 from February 28, instead of March 1. On November 7, the TSBIE published the timetable the IPE March 2018 (Theory) to begin from March 1, 2018 onwards.
However, last week the Andhra Pradesh Board of Intermediate Education has announced its IPE March 2018 (Theory) schedule that is slated to commence from February 28. The change in exam schedule, as per the TSBIE, is due to the common syllabus of both states boards.
“Keeping in view of the common syllabus in optional subjects in both Telangana and Andhra Pradesh and as there is a possibility for sending Question Paper of APBIE through WhatsApp that may create false rumours of leakage of Question Paper every day and panic/confusion in the students of Telangana State. In view of the above, to avoid imminent risk factors, the TSBIE has taken a decision re-schedule the Time-table for IPE March 2018,” the Board said in a press release on Tuesday.
As per the revised schedule, the first and second year IPE would commence with the second language paper-I and II on February 28 and March 1 respectively. The first and second year examinations will conclude on March 17 and 19 respectively.
The board will conduct the practical examinations from February 1 and it will end on February 21. The ethics and human values examination and environmental education examination will be held on January 27 and 29 respectively.
