we only need from april 2019 to april 2020 or like due to covid-19 the exam has been postpone so is it imp to study maya nd june 2020 bcoz the paper might have set up till now
NO exam is cancelled till now except some universities internal exams. so i suggest you to be prepared for the exam as MHRD do not want to waste students 1 year without taking the exam which will result into weak concepts of students in academics and so MHRD is focusing on e-learning and online exams.
