Annual exams to be conducted in March 2015

Srinagar: The Cabinet which met here under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Omar Abdullah decided that the annual examinations of the under-graduate classes of Kashmir division and winter zone of Jammu division shall be held in March, 2015 instead of October-November, 2014.
It also decided that the same examination schedule shall apply in the Kashmir division and the winter zone of the Jammu division in the School Education Department.
The decision was taken in view of the damages caused to the infrastructure of schools and higher education institutions in the state by the floods.
The government withdrew its earlier handout regarding annual examination for students of class I to XII, Commissioner secretary Nirmal Sharma said.
He said since the cabinet decided to hold examination of students in March next year and the earlier order of holding the exams in October and November must be deemed as withdrawn.
Meanwhile, Controller Examinations, Kashmir University, A.S Bhat confirmed the annual examinations of under-graduate courses will be held in March, 2015.
He said some major examinations which were postponed due to floods will resume from November this year.
“We will finalize exam dates for B.Ed and for other bi-annual under-graduate courses and start the examinations from first week of November,” Bhat said.
He, however, said the different departments in Kashmir University will have the discretion to announce the dates of examinations for any subjects which were left midway in the wake of the floods.
“The departmental heads are at liberty to conduct the exams of these subjects on any date. As per my knowledge, some departments have started to conduct these exams,” Controller Examinations said.
He said the examinations for M.Ed and several post graduate (PG) courses run through private or distance mode would be conducted after October 20.
Besides P.G programmes, some semester exams were also delayed due to floods, but they will resume hopefully from October 21.”
