Question Paper - Exam

SRINAGAR — In a bizarre twist, the Jammu and Kashmir Board of School Education (JKBOSE) on Wednesday distributed Physical Education question papers of 11th standard to 12th standard candidates.

Hundreds of 12th standard candidates were left to lurch who had sleepless nights to prepare for the annual regular exams of Physical Education paper.

The news agency KNO spoke to some of the exam in-charges and candidates appearing in the annual regular exams of 12th standard who expressed concern about the lackadaisical approach of the Board.

One of the students said that the examination pattern of Physical Education was entirely different as was shown and notified by the Board. “Ironically, only two marks were taken from the 12th standard syllabus. Rest the question paper of 12th standard was set from 11th standard syllabus,” she said.
