PREMIUM TIMES had earlier reported how the board postponed the date for the sale of 2018 application forms due to the delay in meeting the agreed deadline by the publisher of the compulsory text meant for prospective candidates.
The board had also proposed March 9 to 17, 2018 as the date for the examination.
