‘Tough’ Physics paper triggers protest
Srinagar, Nov 7: Outraged at what they called “tough Physics paper” students of class 12th on Wednesday took to the streets here and staged protests against Jammu and Kashmir State Board of School Education (JKBOSE).
Soon after examination ended students assembled at Press Enclave here and demanded either the JKBOSE should hold re-examination or it should award grace marks to the students.
“Exams are held to assess students of all levels-excellent, above average and average. But Physics paper was set for excellent students only. This has defeated the very purpose of holding the examination,” students said.
“We are depressed and we cannot concentrate on our next papers as we are in a state of shock after appearing in today’s paper,” said Junaid Wani a student.
Meanwhile, Greater Kashmir received numerous telephone calls from parents, who were aghast over today’s Physics paper.
“Physics paper had many errors. Questions that deserve 10 marks were given 3 marks and vice-versa. Objective questions were unanswerable, even the teachers monitoring the exam were not able to understand those questions,” said Mushtaq Ahmad Butta, father of Naima Mushtaq, a class 12th student.
Meanwhile, students appearing at Centre number 307 in Baramulla also demanded grace marks. They demanded intervention of Chief Minister Omar Abdullah.
Pertinently, Class XII students had staged massive anti-BOSE protest last week. They had alleged that Mathematics paper was “tough” and “out of syllabus.”
