TS Inter Students To Have More Choices In Board Exams This Year
TS Inter students to have more choices in the board exams for the academic year 2020-21 due to the COVID-19 pandemic which reduced the classwork of the students.

And the junior colleges will be opened from January 18 and it is yet to be decided if the classes to be held in shifts or in the alternative days.
