IPE 2015 schedule clashes with competitive exams. a possible delay in the conduct of Intermediate Public Examination on the scheduled dates would not only bother students in terms of delay, but also clash with other State and Central level competitive examinations.
According to the schedule followed by officials every year, IPE is generally conducted in March to avoid any clash with the exam dates of EAMCET, JEE and ECET.
Official sources familiar with the exam preparations said that the process of preparing and printing of question papers has not yet begun, against the normal process of kick-starting it in August every year. Given the current situation, it looks very difficult for officials to conduct the examinations as per the schedule in March 2015.

The extended dates of the examinations are likely to clash with other national and State level competitive examinations that are held in April and May 2015.
Sources said that the regular procedure has been delayed owing to the conflicting stance taken by Telangana and Andhra Pradesh governments over the supervision and preparation of question papers and separate or common conduct of the examinations.
The Board of Intermediate is already two months behind the schedule. Hundreds of question papers for regular and vocational subjects need to be prepared in advance as the printing of nearly one crore answer books itself would take a month’s time.
At the same time, the board has to call for tenders regarding the white papers used and the printing takes a minimum of 10 days and the next step would be disbursement of papers within the official schedules.
