Earlier in June, the provincial government had revised the school timings for all public and private schools in both summer and winter zones due to the unusually hot weather.
The school timings across the province were reduced by a couple of hours, starting as early as 7 am and closing by 10 am, while the afternoon shifts started at 4 pm.
Further, the matric and inter exams, scheduled to start in mid-June, were also pushed back by another month.
