Srinagar: A day after authorities in J&K board of school education (BOSE) announced tentative dates for annual 10th and 12th class examinations, students demanded deferment in view of the “incomplete syllabus” in the schools. Danish, a science student from Pulwama termed the BOSE decision unacceptable saying that students did not have required number of working days in the schools due to which the syllabus has remained incomplete. Pertin-ently, chairperson JKBOSE Veena Pandita had said they have decided to conduct annual exams for classes 12 and 10 from first and second week of October respectively as they want to complete the annual and bi-annual private exams before March. Pertinently, the high and higher secondary schools remained closed for 32 days in two months from March 5 to May 5 in wake of the student protests that erupted across valley. The decision to close the educational institutions was taken by government as a precautionary measure to avoid law and order problems.
