Otherwise they will lose the opportunity of writing the exams. Specially,
- All the composite courses offered under group B of 1st language are dispensed with in view of the G.O. Ms. No.86 Education Department (SE-C&TBP) dt:02-04-2003.

Further the Headmasters are informed to intimate the same to all the Parents in writing so that they too will become thoroughly conversant with dispensing of composite courses.
- Similarly codes like special English 11E, 09U etc, offered under 2nd language are also dispensed with. Now the students of Outside State / Country, will have to write compulsorily either 09T or 09H depending upon their choice of 1st language if they take admission in 6th class itself. In the case, if they take admission in formal schools of Telangana in classes like 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th they are exempted from writing 2nd language.
