Srinagar: The class 11th students who were declared as failed in their examinations on Thursday staged demonstration and ransacked the office of Jammu and Kashmir Board of school education (JKBOSE) in Bemina locality of Srinagar during a protest.
An official pf JKBOSE said the students assembled inside the premises at Bemina and raised slogans and demanded that they should be declared as successful in the exams.
“The students were not ready to listen to anything but resorted to vandalism and ransacked the office by targeting the windows and glass panes,” the official said.
He said the students were demanding statutory marks to declare them as qualified.
“But we can’t give statutory marks blindly to the students. We have certain rules and norms for it. The limit of statutory marks is only 5 for the candidates who are failing in only one subject,” the official said.
BOSE officials said that student created ruckus at the office and raised Pro ZakirMoosa, and Pro Daesh slogans.
“They accused authorities of ‘playing with their careers by declaring them failed in exams which is not the fact. They should first obtain Xerox copy of their answer scripts,” the official said.
Around 62101 students-32227 boys and 29874 girls had appeared in the exams out of which 39406 students- 19284 boys and 20122 girls have been declared as qualified in the results declared on Wednesday.
The pass percentage in exams was 63 percent- boys 60 percent and girls 67 percent.
Meanwhile, the protesting student said the authorities have resorted to wrong marking saying that some students have good marks but have been declared failed while some with low marks are being shown as passed.
“We are protesting against their callous attitude towards us,” the students said.
JKBOSE officials said that if the students have grievances they should come to officials and follow the procedure.
“If anybody has any grievance they should approach us but resorting to hooliganism and vandalizing property which belongs to the community is not the way to get their grievances addressed,” he said.
