Intermediate examination began peacefully throughout the district on Wednesday even as scorching sun tested the patience of students, particularly after the completion of the examination.
Many students were forced to wait for a long time at bus stops after completion of the exam at noon when mercury was touching 32 degrees Celsius. The students asked the officials to operate more buses on various routes from the examination centres.
As many as 26,000 students attended the examination held in 86 centres in the district. Official of the Intermediate Board said that no untoward incident was reported at any centre in the district. Regional Inspection Officer A.Ammannamma monitored the examinations with the support of superintendents posted at the 86 centres.
