Srinagar, Oct 5: The J&K
Board of School Education
(BOSE) has decided to con-
duct the annual examina-
tion for classes 10th and 12th
after November 15. The deci-
sion in regard to 11th and
lower classes will be taken
Veena Pandita said the class
10th and 12th exams will be
conducted in offline mode
while taking all covid19
precautionary measures in
all the exam centres.
“We delayed the conduct
of exams to November as
students demanded that
they should be given ample
time for preparation. So we are planning to start the exam for both the classes (10th and
12th) after November 15,” she said.
Pandita however informed that the exams of both classes
will be conducted simultaneously on alternative days. “We
are hopeful that exams of both the classes will be over by
December 20,” she said.
The chairperson of the board said that a meeting of
the academic committee JKBOSE will be convened in the
coming days and decisions about holding exams of lower
classes will be taken accordingly. “Decision about holding
exams for class 11th students will be taken after the meet-
ing,” she said.
She said the board will also finalise the arrangements
of setting up of exam centres for the students of both the
classes as well. “All the arrangements will be finalized
within a week’s time,” she said.
As already reported, the government has announced a
reduction of 30 percent of syllabus for class 10th, 11th and
12th in view of the ongoing pandemic.
Joint secretary examination JKBOSE, Prof Aijaz Ahmad
Hakak meanwhile said they are calculating the number of
students who have registered for the annual class 10th and
12th exams. “This year the number of exam centres will be
double in view of the pandemic as the number of students
will be decreased by 50 percent in exam centres,” he said.
“We will obviously need more buildings for setting up
exam centres for which we may seek help from the higher
education department or use buildings of some professional
colleges,” he said
