HYDERABAD:25 April:More than 108,000 students will sit for the intermediate exams that are starting from today [April 25]. The exams are being conducted by the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE), Hyderabad, in 10 districts of Hyderabad and Nawabshah divisions.

At a press conference on Monday, BISE Chairperson Prof Dr Muhammad Memon said 133 examination centres have been set up, of which 24 centres have been declared sensitive, including seven in Benazirabad, four each in Hyderabad and Jamshoro, three in Matiari and one each in the remaining six districts.

He said that 38,873 female and 69,134 male students have been issued admit slips.
