Alert for Students: Exams on cards


Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.


Srinagar, Sept 10:  Amid the prevailing uncertainty, the school education department has prepared the tentative date sheet for holding annual JK Board of School Education (BOSE) exams for the students of class 10th, 11th and 12th. An official in JKBOSE told wire service –  that the exams are likely to commence from 3rd week of October while as the exams for class 11th will commence from 2nd week of November.

“The officials at JKBOSE have started the preparation for setting of question papers and process for compilation of answer scripts,” an official told wire service. He said the preparations have been started on the directions of the school education department to hold all the exams on scheduled time. The official said the class 10th and 12th will be held prior to class 11th exams given the shifting of students from secondary to higher secondary level and from higher secondary to college level.

“The exam from class 11th students can be held a month later than class 10th and 12th as the students don’t have to complete any registration process after exams,” the official told wire service. He said the actual dates for commencement of exams will be notified properly through official date sheet announced by JKBOSE later.

Already, the school education department has directed the students to fill the examination forms of 10th to 12th class examination to be conducted by Jammu and Kashmir Board of School Examination (JKBOSE).

The department has fixed September 10 as the last date for filling of examination forms by the students. An official said that last week Director School Education Kashmir (DSEK) held a meeting with chief education officers (CEOs) to get the feedback about completion of syllabus of class 10th, 11th and 12th class students.

“The CEOs informed in the meeting that around 40 to 46 percent of syllabus has been completed in the schools. But there was nothing discussed about providing relaxation to students,” the official told wire service . The official informed that the JKBOSE has to make a huge preparation to hold the exams of 10th, 11th and 12th class students. He said the number of students appearing in exams would be ascertained only after students submit their forms.

“Given the gag on internet and cellular services most of the officials in JKBOSE have shifted to Jammu to complete the preparation for holding exams,” the official told wire service. An official also said the department has decided not to grant mass promotion to students from primary to class 9th. “Granting mass promotion in one class, the student performance in next classes remains very poor. So, we don’t want to keep any learning gaps,” the official told wire service.

Last week the advisor to Governor, Farooq Ahmad Khan also hinted about holding exams for all classes citing that the department can defer the exam by a month for the convenience of students. “The exam preparations are going on, we are hopeful that students will prepare for it and complete all the formalities on time,” Farooq Khan told reporters after chairing a review meeting on Saturday.

Amid government pressure to hold exams for all classes, the private schools have also started distributing video lessons and other assignments to students from primary to secondary classes. The schools are informing the students through newspaper advertisements about the date and time for collection of the assignments and lessons. (KNO)
