On March 29, the education department decided against delaying the exams for a third time. They had been delayed twice before – on March 20 and March 25.

The March 20 exam was postponed for Holi till March 23 and then postponed once again due to a protest by teachers. The teachers had said they would not invigilate the exams until their demands were met. However, they ended their protest on March 29 after the government accepted their demands.

The same day, Education Minister Sardar Ali Shah said there would be no more delays and announced that the exams would be held on April 1.
