JAMMU, Apr 16: The Jammu & Kashmir Board of School Education, JKBOSE will supervise the Class XI annual examination on the pattern of Classes X and XII from the next academic session 2018-19.
Previously, the board’s role in the Class XI examination was just to provide the question papers while the invigilators were from the respective schools. But from next session onwards, the JKBOSE will designate its staff as superintendents/deputy superintendents at all examination centres across the state.
Roshan Lal Gupta, Joint Secretary of Examination, JKBOSE said: “Yes, we are doing away with the home examination system for Class XI. The exams will now be conducted by the JKBOSE under its overall supervision. In fact, the marking in the papers, which was earlier done by the respective schools, is now the responsibility of the school board.”
“The upcoming Class XI annual examination of the winter zone, Kashmir division to be held in October-November this year will be conducted by the JKBOSE. Similarly, the Class XI annual examination for the summer zone, Jammu Province to be held in March-April next year will be conducted by the school board,” he added. When asked about the ongoing Class XI examination, Gupta said: “The ongoing examination will continue as per the past Term 1 and Term 2 pattern. The exams will resume on April 26. However, there is likely to be one annual examination under the JKBOSE from the next academic session.”
Sources claimed that the reason behind this move was the alleged Class XI Physical Education paper leak, which had raised some serious questions over the conduct of examination by the schools on their respective premises, especially in private ones.
Meanwhile, the school board had decided to lodge an FIR with the Crime Branch, Jammu, against the erring institutions for opening the sealed packets ahead of the schedule of the conduct of Physical Education paper is in the process of getting details about the 5-7 defaulting private schools.
