SRINAGAR: She has scored 86 % in Mathematics, 85 % in Science, and 90 percent in Social Sciences in the recently declared Class X results. Her lowest score is for Urdu, at 71 %.
But despite her performance, Bisma Jan from Buchroo village is in trouble right now, because she has been shown absent in English paper by the J&K Board of School Education.
Hailing from Buchroo village in central Kashmir’s Budgam district, Bisma, enrolled at Makki Memorial School in her village, appeared in class 10th examination at Government Higher Secondary School, Wathora – a fact she has to insist on with officials, as she tries to track her lost paper these days.
Bisma, who would have been probably attending coaching classes for her class 11, has been out of sorts since the JKBOSE declared the annual results, her uncle, Abdul Hameed, a teacher, told Kashmir Reader. Hameed said that Bisma’s result earlier showed an ‘E 2’ in her General English on the result website before they came to know at the JKBOSE’s Bemina office that she had been “absent” in the paper-much to their shock.
Emphasising that she “did appear” in the General English paper, Bisma told Kashmir Reader, “I attempted all the questions”.
She even remembers that she marked her attendance in the paper.
“It was a green coloured sheet,” she said. “I can’t fathom why they have marked me absent.”
An equally agitated Hameed has been asked to write an application by the JKBOSE officials over the matter. “They asked us to wait for the marks sheet to see whether she (Bisma) has been shown absent there also,” Hameed added.
Secretary JKBOSE, Riyaz Ahmad told Kashmir Reader that the Board will check the attendance sheet to cross check.
“We will look into it. If the Board is at fault, we will rectify that,” he said.
Ahmad said that the Board will also look for Bisma’s answer script and statement of the concerned superintendent.
“Nobody will be done injustice to”.
