Srinagar: While the State Board of School Education (BOSE) is readying to conduct the examinations scheduled for this month with relaxation in the syllabus for the candidates, the students have all together a different story to tell.

Several students of class 12th said even if they haven’t completed the whole syllabus, but they don’t need any relaxation as it would later only give them a tag like the students of 1991, who are now known as “91 pass”.

“We need ample time and will prepare for the whole syllabus. We don’t need any relaxation in syllabus.  We don’t need any favour from government,” said a group of students of class 12th.

They said, “If government wants our view about the examination, then we will prepare for 100 per cent of syllabus.”

Another student, Aqsa Javaid said, “We don’t want to hear from people that we passed the exams because it was easy for us as we had to prepare for half syllabus,” she said.

The students said they are ready for exams either in November or March, but they don’t want to be called “like 91 pass”.

Rehana Farooq, a student from Ganderbal said that it is better to hold the exams in March. “It will let us focus on the entrance exams. Otherwise, our focus would shift between studying the entrance examination and Class exams,” she said.

However, 1991 pass candidates is not even remotely related to this 2016 issue because in 1991 there was mass copying in examination centers, while in this case there is no such thing.

“We have been demanding deferment of exams to complete our syllabus and if the government will not start class work then the decision will be no more favorable for us. We are ready to sit in the exam but not with relaxation,” they said. (PTK)
