NEP-2020: J&K Plans To Shift Board Exam Session To March Check complete details below

Srinagar: The J&K government is planning to shift its Board examination session to March in order to sync it with the national academic calendar.

The move comes in wake of the government decision to adopt the Uniform Academic Calendar in Higher Education Department (HED) and also implement the National Education Policy NEP-2020 from the current academic session, concurrently.

In this regard, a high level meeting was chaired by J&K Chief Secretary Dr Arun Kumar Mehta to review and discuss modalities for implementation of National Education Policy NEP-2020 in J&K.

In the meeting it was also decided that the four year undergraduate programme as per UGC guidelines would be introduced in colleges of J&K from the current academic session.


“The Principal Secretary School Education Department (SED) who was also in the meeting was asked to devise ways and means so that the JK Board examination session will be shifted to March from next year,” an official told Greater Kashmir.

“Obviously the changes made in the UG academic session have to be linked with the academic calendar of SED so that there will be complete synchronisation of the academic session from school to University level,” he said.

Principal Secretary School Education Department (SED), Bishwajit Kumar Singh also confirmed that the examination session of J&K Board of School Education (BOSE) will be shifted to March.

“The department has been asked to hold the exams in March for both Jammu and Kashmir division. The exams will be held in February last month for Jammu division and will be followed by examination of students of Kashmir and winter zones of Jammu division,” Singh told Greater Kashmir.

“The exams will be conducted simultaneously one after the other,” he said.

He said SED will wait for further directions of the government for implementation of the decision. “The government will issue further instructions about from which session the decision will be implemented,” he said.

He said the department will go ahead with shifting the exams session for class 10th to 12th students while the examination session for junior classes will be shifted gradually, later.

“To begin with, sessions of class 10th and 12th students will be shifted to March. The examination calendar of junior classes will also be synced with the national academic calendar later,” Singh said.

Besides shifting the session of SED to March, the government has already geared to implement the NEP-2020 in Higher Education with the introduction of Four Year Under-Graduate Programmes (FYUG) in Degree Colleges across J&K.

As per the draft Curricular Framework and Credit System for the FYUGP, the graduates of the FYUGP are required to demonstrate a general understanding of the natural sciences, social sciences, humanities, interdisciplinary studies, and vocational education across semesters.

The FYUGP system compulsorily seeks choosing and completion of credits from Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, Humanities, interdisciplinary studies, and vocational education.

However, it has thrown major challenges for the J&K Government to implement the FYUGP in colleges which do not offer admissions in all the streams.
