The mock examination, which was earlier scheduled to hold on May 20, will now hold on June 3.
The registration exercise which had earlier been scheduled to end on May 15, will now end on May 29.
The new developments are contained in a communique issued at the end of a meeting hosted by the examination body and held between Friday and Saturday.
