Jammu and Kashmir Board of School Education (JKBOSE) has issued a fresh notice notifying regarding the postponement of the JKBOSE Class 12th Physical Education examination. This examination that was scheduled to be held on December 04, 2021, has now been postponed by 7 days.
As per the notice, the Class 12th Physical Education paper of JKBOSE shall be conducted on December 11, 2021. The board has not put forth any reason for this deferment as of now. However, leading reports suggest that this action has been taken as the seal of the Physical Education question paper was found broken in some of the examination centres. The authorities have ordered a probe to nab the perpetrators. However, by that time a fresh question paper shall be prepared for the subject and hence rescheduling of the JK BOSE Class 12th Physical Education exam was very important.
The notice released yesterday also said that all other JKBOSE Class 12th examinations scheduled on December 04, 2021, of different streams Science, Arts, and Commerce shall be held on time. Candidates can check out the notice released by the board to know if their subject falls in any of the categories released.
Earlier JKBOSE has released the complete date sheet for all the streams of class 12th i.e. Arts, Commerce, Science, and Home Science. The Class 12th examination commenced on November 09 and was supposed to end on December 04, 2021. However, according to the revised schedule now, the last day of examination shall fall on November 11, 2021, only for those who have opted for the Physical Education paper.
The board has earlier introduced a lot of changes in the JKBOSE Class 12th exam pattern. Citing the prevailing conditions, it has been decided to reduce 30% of the syllabus. This decision has been taken to reduce the burden on the students. Along with this, the duration has also been slashed and the paper that was earlier held for 3 hours will now be held for 2 hours and 30 minutes only.
Candidates can check out the weightage of marks against each subject asked in the examination this year. It has also been decided to keep the pass percentage for all the subjects at 35%. It is expected that the result of the Class 12th JKBOSE exam shall be released in January 2022.
