Meanwhile, the CBSE class 12 board exams are set to conclude by April 2, with the JEE Main 2024 session 2, an engineering entrance exam, scheduled from April 4 to April 15.

Looking ahead, schools in various states are preparing for summer vacations scheduled for May. In Delhi, for instance, summer vacation will begin on May 11 and continue until June 30, with teachers continuing their work until June 28-30. Similarly, schools in Uttar Pradesh are gearing up for an extended summer break lasting 41 days, starting from May 21 and ending on June 30.

As the academic year progresses, students and educators are navigating through a mix of holidays and exam schedules, ensuring a balanced approach to education and leisure.
