NEP-2020 : J&K plans to shift Board exam session to March


Srinagar : The J&K government is planning to shift its Board examination session to March in order to sync it with the national academic calendar.

The move comes in wake of the government decision to adopt the Uniform Academic Calendar in Higher Education Department (HED) and also implement the National Education Policy (NEP)-2020 from the current academic session, concurrently.

In this regard, a high level meeting was chaired by J&K Chief Secretary Dr Arun Kumar Mehta to review and discuss modalities for implementation of National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 in J&K.

In the meeting it was also decided that the four year undergraduate programme as per UGC guidelines would be introduced in colleges of J&K from the current academic session.

“ The Principal Secretary School Education Department (SED) who was also in the meeting was asked to devise ways and means so that the JK Board examination session will be shifted to March from next year,” an official told Greater Kashmir.

“ Obviously the changes made in the UG academic session have to be linked with the academic calendar of SED so that there will be complete synchronisation of the academic session from school to University level,” he said.

Principal Secretary School Education Department (SED), Bishwajit Kumar Singh also confirmed that the examination session of J&K Board of School Education (BOSE) will be shifted to March.

“ The department has been asked to hold the exams in March for both Jammu and Kashmir division. The exams will be held in February last month for Jammu division and will be followed by examination of students of Kashmir and winter zones of Jammu division,” Singh told Greater Kashmir.

“ The exams will be conducted simultaneously one after the other,” he said.

He said SED will wait for further directions of the government for implementation of the decision. “The government will issue further instructions about from which session the decision will be implemented,” he said.

He said the department will go ahead with shifting the exams session for class 10th to 12th students while the examination session for junior classes will be shifted gradually, later.
