JKBOSE provisionally promote 10 standard students to next class to avoid academic loss
In a bid to prevent academic loss, the Jammu and Kashmir government has decided to provisionally promote Class 10 students to the next class. This decision was made following the conclusion of the Class X exam on Wednesday, in which over 63,500 students appeared in the soft zones of Kashmir. This is the first time the board exam was held in March, in accordance with the National Education Policy (NEP).
The Principal Secretary of Education, Alok Kumar, stated that provisional admission is a common practice and will be provided to students until the results are out. The ‘Uniform Academic Calendar’ mandates that students who appear for Class 10 and 11 exams will be provisionally admitted to Class 11th and 12th, respectively, after the board examination.
Students who fail to pass the Bi-annual exam will be permitted to continue their studies until the result of the Annual Private examination is declared. However, provisional admission will be canceled for those who fail in the Bi-annual examination, according to a government order.
Approximately 63,543 students enrolled for the Class X exam in the soft zones of the valley this year, with 630 exam centers set up across the Kashmir division. The March session has helped overcome many academic obstacles for students, as they no longer have to face migration issues when seeking admission elsewhere.
The government plans to hold exams for hard zones separately, as these areas are snowbound and inaccessible during March. Students in these zones will also be provisionally promoted to the next class.
