It is not in our hands to shift your examination. I could just suggest you to study hard for as much time as you have. Due to the covid 19 pandemic situation prevailing in the country it is getting very difficult for the students to study with the help of online classes but we need to learn to manage it as we cannot harm our studies so i would recommend you to study hard from right now.
