Dussehra Holidays: Good News for Students in Andhra Pradesh

In a welcome announcement, the Andhra Pradesh government is providing an extended Dussehra holiday for schoolchildren. Following the EAMCET (Engineering, Agriculture, and Medical Common Entrance Test) exams, the government has scheduled these holidays. Let’s take a closer look at when and for how long schools in Andhra Pradesh will remain closed for Dussehra.

Dussehra Breaks in Andhra Pradesh The Andhra Pradesh government has taken proactive steps by announcing Dussehra holidays well in advance. These holidays will be observed from October 13th to the 25th, providing a total of 13 consecutive days off for students. The government has also released the holiday schedule, ensuring clarity for all stakeholders. In addition to the holidays, EAMCET 1 exams will be conducted from October 5th to October 11th. Notably, the exams for 8th-grade students will proceed without any changes in schedule, while all other grade levels will enjoy an extended break.

Previous Examinations and Schedules Prior to these holidays, exams for 6th, 8th, and 10th-grade students were conducted in the morning, while 7th and 9th-grade students had their exams in the afternoon. This year, however, the schedule is different. Only the 8th-grade exams have been rescheduled, with the remaining grade levels continuing as previously planned.
