Normal life has been thrown out of gear due to the rains in the two districts. Low-lying areas have been inundated and there is waterlogging in several areas. Access roads and even main roads have been cut off, affecting movement of traffic. Due to this, it would be impossible for students to attend exams, hence the decision to postpone.
The new date for the exams will be announced later, Dr Dharma said.
