JKBOSE Chairman Ensures No Student Will Miss Exams Amid Examination Forms Controversy

JKBOSE Chairman Ensures No Student Will Miss Exams Amid Examination Forms Controversy

Srinagar, Dec 15: The recent news regarding the alleged non-issuance of Examination Forms has been vehemently refuted by JKBOSE, Jammu and Kashmir Board of School Education, dismissing the claims as fabricated and baseless.


An official of JKBOSE clarified that the issue of non-facilitation for eligible candidates of affiliated academic institutions to appear in public examinations is unfounded. The Board official emphasized its role as an affiliating-cum-examining body that prioritizes facilitation over bias, addressing any misleading information in accordance with norms and factual records.

He highlighted that academic institutions must adhere to the norms and guidelines set by the J&K BOSE and the Government School Education Department. Non-compliance with mandated document submission by petitioner schools cannot be overlooked, and the Board is committed to ensuring the rights of students to pursue their educational goals.

Furthermore, he underscored its awareness of student interests and commitment to facilitating them, citing ongoing processes to benefit students from affected schools. It also noted the legal adjudication of issues related to schools having “other than proprietary” land titles.

The Board refuted allegations against its denial of institutions’ rights to foster mandatory education, emphasizing its dedication to safeguarding the academic interests of students. The ongoing facilitation process for affected schools has already benefited students, with more schools to be accommodated in due course.

He strongly rebuts and refutes the allegations, asserting its commitment to ensuring the academic interests and rights of students in affiliated schools.

Chairman of the Jammu & Kashmir Board of School Education, Prof. (Dr.) Parikshat Singh Manhas, also conveyed a strong commitment to ensuring that no student would miss their exams.

He stated that late fees would not be charged for any student. Addressing the issue of schools established on state land, he further said that the importance of adherence to norms and guidelines. Some schools, he noted, seem to turn the registration process into a contentious matter.

Prof. Manhas expressed regret that certain politicians are providing misleading information. “The overarching assurance was that the board strictly ensures that every student can take their exams without any hindrance,” he added.

Previously, it was noted that the educational prospects of numerous students in Jammu and Kashmir are uncertain, given the Jammu and Kashmir Board of School Education’s (BOSE) refusal to acknowledge class 10th examination forms submitted by students from private schools situated on state-owned land. This decision has prompted apprehension and cast doubt on the Board’s actions, particularly in light of a High Court order issued last year, aligned with a government directive from the preceding year.
