“We shall have to complete the process of conduct of examinations and declaration of results well in time so that the students can prepare for and appear in various competitive examinations, including NEET and JEE, for admission to various professional courses, both within and outside the state,” Education Minister Naeem Akhtar said.
In a significant decision, the government has also decided to review the policy of ‘No-Detention’ at the elementary level to check the deterioration in the quality of education.
The state’s education department has decided that, henceforth, State Institute of Education (SIE) would conduct T1 and T2 exams from Class 5 to 9 with external evaluation, while JKBOSE would conduct T2 exam of class 11.
However, the evaluation for all these examinations would be supervised by SIE, while the cluster principals will supervise assessment, evaluation and remedial teaching, the spokesman said.
