Apart from the students, even some teachers and parents have expressed disappointment with the date sheet.

"The question is not how much would a student be able to study in a day. The question is how much he wouldn’t be able to. We need at least the gap of one day for revision, relaxation, and breaking from one subject to another," Hindustan Times quoted Ashok Pandey, principal of Ahlcon School, as saying.

In the date sheet, History — scheduled for 20 March — is immediately followed by Mathematics — scheduled for 21 March. The JEE exam is scheduled for 8 April, just a day before the Physical Education exam. For the humanities students, three exams have been placed back-to-back from 5 to 7 April.
