  1. Sir, I think it’s not a good idea to postpone the exam again Because we are stressing out here. Postponing to the end of the year is a joke, It’s true that we haven’t finished our syllabus but postponing again is gonna be much exasperating and tiring for students. Yes, we do want a fair paper we all want that, but please do not postpone it again. September is totally fine. With your support, we can handle it.

  2. we ask u sir to post pone the exam ….what ever the standard of the paper cannot be reduced…so inoder to learn the difficult things and to cover the syllabus we students who do A/L kindly and polietly ask to post pone the exam till at least November 1st week …that will really free the stress of us by learning the difficult things in the subject sessions..
    thank you sir
