Candidates aghast over ‘unjust’ series system
CLASS 12TH EXAMINATION
MANZOOR UL HASSAN
Srinagar, Nov 14: At a time when Board of School Education boasts the ‘reforms’ made in the examination system, the candidates appearing in class 12th examination are aghast over the ‘discriminatory’ and ‘imbalance’ series system in question papers.
“There is no proper pattern followed in the examination and the BOSE is insensitive towards the students concern. Questions in each series were different due to which some students got easy questions and some had to evaluate difficult ones, which is unfair,” the candidates and parents told Greater Kashmir.
This newspaper office received many complaints from aggrieved candidates and parents about the ‘imbalance’ and ‘incomprehensive’ question papers especially Chemistry.
“Series A and C of Chemistry were difficult as compared to B. There was confusing pattern and we are unable to decide how to prepare for the future papers,” they candidates complained.
According to them, the Chemistry A-Series was not set as per the weightage of marks for the chapters. “There was no uniform distribution of marks in the paper. There were two questions about Perkins and Claisen Reactions that were neither part of the curriculum nor taught in the school,” most of the aggrieved candidates alleged.
“In C-Series, major portion of the paper was taken from the Organic Chemistry while the Inorganic part was limited to the short answers only,” they said.
The candidates complained that the new experiment of series system was injustice with them. “It will drastically ruin our career because we are uncertain as to what would come in future papers even if we are preparing everything,” they said.
Similarly, the candidates appearing in Physiology paper complained of ‘incomprehensive’ language. “The language in the paper was confusing and most of the questions had incomprehensive language,” they said. “Some of the questions were out of syllabus.”
“Earlier the physics paper held on October 29 was having the same differences as C-series was much difficult then A & B,” the candidates said.
They said the papers should have been set as per Board of Professional Entrance Examination Pattern, where the questions are in different sequence in each series while the questions are same in every series.
While parents termed the Saturday paper as ‘shocking’ for their wards, however the authorities see it as ‘accountability’ and ‘accuracy’ measures. “These measures were introduced to modify our conventional method of examination system”, the authorities had claimed. “The level of difficulty and time consumption varies in each series. That ways, there would be a huge difference in the candidates’ final merit. And no two candidates, with same intelligence and preparation, will have the same marks tally,” a senior lecturer wishing anonymity said.
Despite repeated attempts neither the BOSE Chairman, Dr. Sheikh Bashir nor the Secretary, responded to the calls.
