Deferment of exams in students interest: NC

‘Exams at this stage would put their educational careers at stake’

Srinagar: National Conference senior leader and provisional president Nasir Aslam Wani Monday said that deferment of examination of class 10 and class 12 would be in the interests of students at large.
He added that students who are yet to complete half of the syllabus should not be forced to appear in examinations, adding, “It would put their educational careers at stake.”
Wani told KNS that class 12 students must have required percentage of marks obtained in annual examination to be eligible for their upcoming competitive tests.
“These students have ambitious to appear in competitive exams like CET, NEET and others. They want to crack them. But under the provisions, the student who wish to appear in these exams must have the required percentage to be eligible for these tests,” he said.
Wani said that the government should defer the examinations as was done in past after ferocious floods hit Kashmir Valley in 2014. “I believe that the voices of students are to some extend genuine as they have not completed their syllabus so far. I think government should defer the examination till the students won’t complete their syllabus,” he said.
Pertinently, Board of School Education (BOSE) have issued date sheet for both class 10 and class 12 students. The examinations are scheduled to commence in November, this year.
Naeem Akhtar, Education Minister had also said the examination of 10th and 12th classes will be held as planned.
Meanwhile, Wani told KNS that his party is always in favour of peace between the neighbouring countries, India and Pakistan. “Peace between India and Pakistan is good for the people of Kashmir as any hostilities between them can prove harmful to the people of the state,” he said.
“We appeal both the countries to stop such kind of situation, which can leave people of Kashmir to suffer,” he said.
He said that the tall claims made by Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in past falls ill on the ground as since this regime assumed the charge, the relation between the two countries is getting worse,” he said. (KNS)
