JKSCERT Postpones 8th Class Exams for All Papers Except English: New Dates Awaited

The Jammu and Kashmir State Council of Educational Research and Training (JKSCERT) has made a significant decision regarding the 8th class examinations, causing a stir among students and educational stakeholders alike.

The Announcement:

In a recent development, JKSCERT has postponed the examination of all papers for 8th standard students, with the exception of the English subject. This decision comes in response to representations from various quarters within the UT of Jammu and Kashmir.

Details of the Postponement:
  • Scheduled exams for 24th, 26th, and 29th of March in the soft zone, and 26th and 29th of March in the hard zone, have been deferred.
  • Fresh dates for these postponed papers in both the hard and soft zones will be communicated at a later date.

Reasons Behind the Decision:
  • Initially, there was a proposal to conduct regional language paper exams for 8th standard simultaneously in both soft and hard zones on April 7th.
  • However, due to delays in receiving question papers, particularly for Kashmiri subjects, this plan could not materialize.
  • JKSCERT cited logistical challenges, specifically the delayed receipt of question papers, as the primary reason for the postponement.

Next Steps:
  • The regional language paper initially scheduled for March 24th in the soft zone will now be rescheduled to April 7th, aligning with the hard zone paper of regional languages.

Challenges Faced:
  • Complex heads expressed concerns over the last-minute receipt of confidential materials, including question papers, which disrupted the examination process.
  • Traditionally, educational institutions received all confidential materials well before the start of examinations. However, this year witnessed delays, with certain materials, notably Kashmiri and English question papers, yet to be received.
The decision by JKSCERT to postpone 8th class exams, except for English, underscores the challenges faced in organizing standardized testing amidst logistical hurdles. Students, educators, and parents await the announcement of new exam dates, hoping for a smooth and fair examination process in the days ahead.
