The Karnataka Pre University Board or Class 12 board exam dates will be changed again. Now, the exams are likely to start from April 22 and end on May 5, earlier. Previously, the exams were scheduled from April 16 to May 6. Karnataka Board has published a draft schedule with exams starting on April 22. The board has requested students and other interested parties to object to the draft timetable by 5 March at the latest.
The change was forced after the exam dates collided with the JEE exam. The first session of the engineering entrance examination is scheduled from April 16 to 21, while session 2 is scheduled from May 24 to 29. The board of Karnataka has revised the dates to avoid the clash of the two exams.
