The RISE has kick started its talent search examination in Bandipora district by conducting a series of tests in Gurez Tehsil.
“The tests were conducted across seven Higher Secondary Schools of Gurez in which around 400 students of class X, XI and XII participated. These tests were conducted at HSS Purana Telail, HSS Badugaam, HSS Baduab, Girls HSS Dawar, HS Wanpora, HS Chorwan and HS Kilshay,” a RISE handout said.
Mubeen Masudi, co-founder at RISE, said that "Due to support from Bandipora district administration, we were able to cover even the remotest areas of the district. We believe that we will be able to identify talented and bright students from these schools and provide them necessary counselling and educational resources to achieve success.”
“RISE will be conducting tests across the Bandipora district covering approximately 5000 students. The initiative is being supported by J&K Bank,” the handout added.
Shafi Pandit, Chairman ASCENT Group, said, "Through RISE talent search examination, we aim at identifying talented students and then providing them with adequate guidance so that they excel in their field of choice."
