Srinagar August 13: Chairman Jammu and Kashmir Civil Society Forum & Former EJAC President Abdul Qayoom Wani has taken a dig on JKBOSE for its hasty decisions with regard to annual exams leaving a room for chaos and confusion for those students who are yet to clear their backlog papers as biannual exams could not be held this year.
In a statement JKCSF Chairman expressed surprise over the issuing of a notifiation by board of school education of annual exams for higher secondary classes amid frustrating situation of COVID 19 of world pandemic.
While the BOSE has shivered the students by asking them to submit exam forms up to September 7, 2020,( for 11th class), it has rendered thousands of candidates staring on the notification which is silent on their eligibility to appear in the said 11th class annual examination.
The notifications vide F (JSE/PSA.)KD/20 Dated 6th August 2020 is all silent about the eligibility of those thousands of candidates who stand enrolled in 11th class on a provisional basis for the reason they had got a backlog in one of the subjects last year in matriculation examination and were supposed to clear the backlogs in the subsequent biannual examination scheduled routinely in March- April months but could not be held due to COVID 19 lockdown.
Representing the affected students JKCSF said that BOSE should have included the eligibility status of such candidates in the notification as the last date of submission of forms is very close.
Wani urged the government to consider the plea of the affected students in time so that they will not lose their one academic year which otherwise will land them into mental trauma besides academic losses.
