Meanwhile, the students appeared in the Mathematics subject, for which the Board had given them a gap of four days, on the last day of the examinations.
.“This year, we had allowed 30 minutes of extra time to the students for Mathematics considering that it takes more time for them to work out the problems through calculations.

The OMR examinations ended at 10.15 AM while the subject test began at 10.25 AM and ended at 11.55 AM,” said BSE president Prof Dakshya Prasad Nanda.
