Students appeal BOSE to declare
division-improvement exam results
Srinagar, Dec 7: The students who have appeared in the division improvement exam of class 12th on Monday accused the Board of School Education (BOSE) of delaying the dec-laration of their result.
The delay in announcement of result of division improvement exam has left the students in a quagmire.“We are not able to apply for admis-sion in outside colleges and universi-ties to pursuehigher education,” an aggrieved student said.
The students appeared in the regu-lar class 12th annual exams but most of them could not secure admission in outside colleges and universities because of lower grades.
“We applied in many foreign universities but didn’t meet the eligibil-ity criteriabecause of low percentage in our class 12th. We have to score above 90 percent marks to become eligible foradmission in foreign uni-
versities,” the students said.
These students later applied for divisional-improvement exam to improve the pass percentage in class 12th and become eligible for admis-sion in foreign universities.
“The divisional-improvement examination was supposed to be con-ducted by BOSE in March 2020, but was postponed due to COVID19,” the student said.
“The exam was finally
held to September 2020.”The students said that the defer-ment of exams due to COVID19 also proved costly for them and they lost the opportunity to apply for admis-sion in foreign universities since their deadlines had already passed.They said the board had claimed to declare the result of divisional improvement exam by November 15.
“Unfortunately, the result was not
declared till date. Most of the univer-sities abroad will close the admission
process within days but the board offi-cials seem to be in no mood to declare
our result,” the students said.Some of these students have already appeared in international level com-petitive exams like SAT, TOEFL and
have scored good marks as well.
“Now we have to apply in the uni-
versities, but the delay in results by BOSE is acting as an obstacle for us,” the students said.The aggrieved students appealed the authorities in JKBOSE to look into the matter and announce their results at the earliest to save their
