With all arrangements in place, the State Board of Intermediate Education (BIE) is set to conduct the Intermediate public (theory) examinations for first and second year, and vocational students. The exams begin on February 28 (Wednesday) and will go on till March 19 (Tuesday).

A total of 9,80,978 students, including 4,42,413 girl students, would appear for the examination. This also includes 1,46,811 students from government junior colleges in the State.

Addressing presspersons here on Monday, Secretary (BIE) Shruti Ojha said all arrangements were made and multiple reviews held to conduct the exams effectively. One exam will be conducted a day, from 9 a.m. till 12 noon. District co-ordination committee meetings chaired by District Collectors have also reviewed necessary arrangements with the TSRTC, the police, medical officers and the electricity department, for safe and quick travel of students on the exam routes, for imposition of Cr. PC 144 (prohibiting gatherings) and closure of photocopy stores, among other preparations.

According to Ms. Ojha, the IPE March 2024 would yield better results as all students’ syllabus, revisions and pre-final examinations were completed as per schedule. There will be a total of 1, 521 examination centres in the State and all are equipped with multiple CCTV cameras to ensure there are no incidents. The whole examination process will be monitored by the district examination committee, a high-power committee, 75 flying squads and 200 sitting squads. About 27, 900 invigilators, also drawn from the School Education Department will be examination personnel.

While the examination time is 9 a.m. till 12 noon daily, students are required to be present in their seats by 8.45 a.m. No student would be allowed into the examination centre after 9 a.m., Ms. Ojha stressed.

The BIE has already released the examination hall tickets online, on tsbie.cgg.gov.in, for downloading by the students. As of Monday noon, about three lakh students have successfully downloaded their hall tickets.

Ms. Ojha advised students and their parents to stay calm and not get stressed and panic over the examination. The Tele-Manas (Tele Mental Health Assistance and Networking across the State) with qualified psychologists and psychiatrists, she said, will also be available round the clock on toll-free number 14416, to help students relieve exam-related stress and anxiety.
