SRINAGAR, June 20: Scores of 12th class students from Central Kashmir’s Ganderbal district today protested against the Board of School Education for withholding results of their bi-annual examination that was held in March this year.
The students assembled at Press Enclave here and demanded immediate declaration of results. The students alleged that BOSE was withholding the results of students who had appeared in the bi-annual examination at centre number 4110 in March this year.
They said that the Board was withholding results over the allegation of mass copying inside the examination centre, “why do not they(board) punish the culprits who were involved in the crime. Why are they punishing us for someone else’s faults?” asked a protestor.
The students said that barring their centre, the results of all other centres have been declared. They said they are on the verge of losing an academic year due to the decision, “We are running from pillar to post for last one month. Without any reasons they are withholding our results,” he said adding that they would lose an academic year in case of re-examination.
