For clarification, the schedule has also been provided.
It may be noted that the AHSEC had on Wednesday asked heads of institutions to inform the council in case they were unable to conduct examinations in light of the flood situation in the state as heavy rains lashed parts of the state in the last few days.
In a notification, the controller of examinations at AHSEC instructed heads of institutions to submit a detailed report with justification regarding their inability to conduct examinations.
Many institutions have been taken up for setting flood relief camps as parts of the state remain heavily affected by floods and landslides resulting from incessant rains in Assam.
However, AHSEC instructed such heads of institutes to make an alternative arrangement if possible.
Moreover, it asked institutes that are not affected by floods to continue with conducting examinations as per schedule released earlier.
