Scores of class 11th students including girls on Monday morning boycotted their classes and assembled on the Srinagar-Leh highway at Ganiwan near his institution and held a protest demanding deferment of their annual examinations, eyewitnesses told Kashmir Reader.
The protesting students said that the exams should be deferred to mid-November so that they could complete their syllabus and appear in exams with preparation.
The protesting students also blocked the vehicular moment on Srinagar Leh highway to press their demand.
“We have not completed our syllabus yet but the government is adamant to hold our exams as per their own convenience. We won’t be able to perform well in exams,” the protesting students said.
They said that JKBOSE is playing with our future, ‘they are doing politics over education they can’t merge education and elections.’
We are requesting JKBOSE to reschedule their exams to mid-November.
