Class 10th ,12th Class Students threaten Protests if exams not deferred
Outraged at J&K Board of School Education (BOSE) exam schedule, the students of class 10th and 12th have threatened to take their demand for putting off the exams to streets. The students had been asking JKBOSE to delay the exams by a few weeks to November so that they could compensate for the loss of nearly a month of academic session to protests during the summer this year.
JKBOSE on Wednesday issued datasheet for class 10th, 11th and 12 exams wherein it has decided to hold exams from the last week of October. The decision enraged the students who had already sought deferment of exams up to the second week of November.
“The government is playing with the career of thousands of students by holding exams from November because our syllabus has not been completed in schools,” said Syed Faheem, a class 12th student of Srinagar.
Greater Kashmir received scores of phone calls and emails from students who demanded deferment of exams till second week of November citing non-completion of students in schools.
The students accused the government of putting students in despair for holding civic body polls as per their own convenience. “Students are frustrated as we had already put forth our demand for deferment of exams unto mid-November because we had less number of working days in schools due to which our syllabus is incomplete,” said Seerat a class 12th student.
The students threatened to commit suicide if the government didn’t postpone the exams to mid-November.
“Most of the students are depressed and are not able to concentrate on their studies as the government has illogically decided to hold the exams from October month,” said another student, Shujat Andrabi.
“We are not yet prepared for our exams because we are yet to complete a major chunk of syllabus in schools,” said Absssar, a student from class 11th.
While the BOSE had already proposed to hold exams in October, the director school education Kashmir (DSEK) had sought deferment of exams till the second week of November citing non-completion of syllabus in schools.
DSEK had written to secretary JKBOSE to defer the exams as the students didn’t get adequate number of working days in schools due to law and order situation in Kashmir.
“The government itself closed schools for almost a month when schools reopened after winter vacations in March. But it seems authorities are much concerned about elections than our career,” said Madiha, a class 10th student.
The students said the government wants to accommodate the exams dates between the Panchayat and ULB polls. Earlier, advisor Khurshid Ahmad Ganai was quoted as having said that the feasible time for holding exams was in between October 16 to Novembel6.
The students threatened to stage protests if the government didn’t reschedule the class 10th to 12th annual exams from mid-November. “We have no other option than to hit streets to press for our demands,” the students said.
Chairperson JKBOSE Veena Pandita ruled out any chances of deferment of exams. “The date sheet has been finalized and we cannot change it now,” Pandita said
