JKBOSE Faces Student Opposition over Rescheduling of Class 11 Exams
Srinagar, March 31 (PK/By Yasir Shakoor): The Jammu and Kashmir Board of School Education (JKBOSE) is facing student opposition after it announced the rescheduling of Class 11 exams from April 16 to April 26. The move was made due to the UPSC exam scheduled for April 16, but students have opposed the decision and called for a reconsideration.
Many students have expressed dissatisfaction with the decision, stating that it would add more stress to an already tense month. They have also pointed out that the rescheduling would affect their ability to celebrate the upcoming festival of Eid-ul-Fitr properly.
Moreover, many students have voiced concerns that the rescheduling would negatively impact their future prospects, particularly their ability to complete the Class 12 syllabus and revise Class 11 in time for the NEET/JEE exams.
One student, who wished to remain anonymous, stated to news outlet ProKashmiri, “We have already been under a lot of stress for more than half of the month due to exams, and adding more days to it is of no benefit to us. We won’t be able to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr properly as we need time to revise and prepare for the exam. Moreover, due to the prevailing aura of the occasion, studying becomes quite difficult during the Eid days. We also have the NEET/JEE exams in the future, and a backlog may affect our preparation for those exams.”
Another student told the news outlet ProKashmiri, “If the exams conclude before 16th April, we will have our practical exams and finish the entire exam process within the month of April. On the other hand, if the exams end on April 26th, it may seem as if we have spent half a year preparing for the exams, and our practical exams would take place in May. which could adversely affect their next classes.”
The students have made two requests to the authorities: to either prepone the exam before April 16 or conduct it before the Eid-ul-Fitr, which falls on April 22. They argue that conducting the exam before the Eid would be more convenient for them as they would be able to revise and prepare without any interruptions caused by the Eid celebrations.
The JKBOSE had released a notification announcing the rescheduling of exams and the affected subjects, which include Computer Science, Information Practices, Environmental Science, Functional English, Physical Education, Islamic Studies, Vedic Studies, Buddhist Studies, Travel, Tourism and Hotel Management, English Literature, and Food Technology.
The authorities have not yet responded to the students’ demands, and it remains to be seen whether the examination will be rescheduled again. The students are hoping that the authorities will take their concerns into consideration and make a decision that is in their best interests–(ProKashmiri)Facebook or follow us on Twitter and Instagram.
