The J&K government has decided to waive off term-II exams for students of nursery to class 9 and of class 11. The students will be elevated to their next class from the new academic session.
"There will be no term-II exams for students from nursery to class 9 and 11. They will be elevated to their next class during the commencement of new academic session," Director School Education Kashmir (DSEK) Ajaz Ahmad Bhat told Greater Kashmir.
The decision has been taken given the closure of schools for the past four months wherein students couldn't attend their classes due to unrest.
The elevation of students to their next classes will ensure the commencement of new academic session on time as the admission for new classes is done in the month of November in winter zone.
"It is imperative that the new session commences on time so that the interest of students can be safeguarded," reads the order issued by school education department.
"But covering term-II syllabi is necessary to prevent adverse impact on the learning levels of the students of these classes," the order reads.
"The remedial classes for the students will be held in winter months to compensate the losses they faced during the unrest. The classes will be held on basis of the learning levels of the students," he said.
The government as per the order has decided for continuation of "No-Detention" policy for lower class students for the current academic session.
