Do not hold classes during vacation: Inter board


Summer holidays declared from March 29 to June 2

The Board of Intermediate Education (BIE) on Wednesday declared summer vacations for junior colleges across the State from March 29 to June 2 and warned the college managements against conducting classes during the vacation period.

In a statement, BIE Secretary B. Udaya Lakshmi said it was brought to her notice that some colleges were running classes during the vacation.

“Admissions in the new academic year should be made only in accordance with the schedule announced by the BIE. No college is allowed to indulge in undue canvassing to force, cajole or entice students as it will result in unhealthy competition among colleges,” Ms. Udaya Lakshmi said.

She also instructed the principals of un-aided junior colleges not to offer guarantee or promise good performance or success at a public examination in advance as an inducement for admission, as it was tantamount to violation of the Rule 7 of Andhra Pradesh Public Examinations (Prevention of Malpractice and Unfair Means) Rules 1997.

Ms. Udaya Lakshmi also asked the principals and managements of aided and private un-aided junior colleges to ensure that no advertisements should be run through hoardings, pamphlets, wall writing, electronic or print media related to running of classes during the vacation or admitting students prior to the BIE schedule.
