Pulwama: Aghast with the government decision to start exams from October, the students of class 11th and 12th on Monday staged a protest in Pulwama to demand deferment of exams till mid-November.
Scores of students assembled at main chowk Pulwama here today morning and shouted slogans to demand deferment of their annual exams.
The students were holding placards and banners which read “defer our exams” and “We want Justice.” The protesting students asked the authorities, especially JK Board of School Education (BOSE) to reschedule their exams to mid-November.
“We have not completed our syllabus yet but the government is adamant to hold our exams as per their own convenience without considering the students’ point of view. We won’t be able to perform better in exams,” said one of the protesting students.
The JK Board of School education (BOSE) has scheduled the annual exams for class 10, 11 and 12th from last week of October.
