Geography, Engineering, Science and Drawing papers to be conducted as part of the ongoing Higher Secondary exams on March 30 as per timetable have been rescheduled for the next day. The Board took the decision after the State Government announced a holiday on March 30 to observe ‘Gudi Padwa’.

The papers would now be held from 10 am to one pm on March 31. Our Mhow correspondent adds, according to Block Education Officer Ram Singh Makwana 5,105 students appeared in the exam today in 37 centres of Mhow tehsil. There are 95 centres for Class V and 6,060 students will appear in the exam, he said.

The students of the Class VIII faced problems in finding their centres, as the venues mentioned in their admission cards were wrong. When Makwana was asked in this regard, he said that it was the mistake of the District Education Office, as the admission cards of Class VIII were prepared at the District Education Office, Indore.
