“J&K Board of School Education (JKBOSE) shall issue a detailed examination schedule including the schedule for submission of the application form. It (JKBOSE) shall notify the list of hard zones or difficult areas separately. Other schedules viz. registration, renewal of registration, migration, inter-school migration, eligibility and subject change shall also be notified separately by JKBOSE,” the guidelines specified.

“The examination schedule shall be applicable with immediate effect from the current session,” the order read.

Earlier SED Principal Secretary mentioned that the committee had deliberated on the issue.

“It was of the opinion that Option-II is most suitable for implementation in the UT of J&K. Option-II had prescribed that the theory examination in UT of Jammu and Kashmir be conducted from 1st week of March as per the present academic calendar of Jammu summer zone (except in difficult areas of Jammu region) and some areas of Kashmir region,” it was mentioned.

It had also prescribed that the examination in these difficult areas would be delayed and held from the 2nd week of April as per the calendar proposed, when “these areas are fully accessible and the delivery of the examination stationary and confidential material is ensured.”

“Even though if examination in these difficult areas shall be conducted separately, the result of these examinations can be declared simultaneously, as although the difficult areas constitute approximately 30-35 percent of the area of the UT, the total number of students from these areas is not more than approximately 10-12 percent, since the areas are sparsely populated and the evaluation of Answer Scripts shall take less time,” it was specified in the Option-II, which finally was recommended by the committee and approved by the government.(GK)
