The extension of dates for submission of examination forms can be summarized as follows:
Without Late Fee
For Class X and XII candidates who wish to submit their examination forms without incurring any late fee, the deadline has been extended until 18th October 2023 (Wednesday). This means that private candidates for these classes have until this date to complete their form submissions without any additional charges.
With Late Fee
For those who are unable to meet the initial deadline without incurring a late fee, there is still an opportunity to submit the forms.
