Scores of 10th class students who had appeared in Hindi subject Tuesday alleged that Board of School Education authorities have done great injustice to them by awarding minimum marks to them as a result their overall result got affected.
BOSE declared the result of class 10 examination for Kashmir division on Monday in which 70.58 percent students qualified. The students who had opted for Hindi subject alleged that BOSE lacks Hindu knowing qualified teachers as a result fair marking was not done.
Scores of students along with their parents assembled at Press Enclave Srinagar and staged a protest against BOSE. The students said that not a single student was awarded A1 or A2 grade in Hindi subject. “B2 is the highest grade acquired by any Hindi knowing student. We are sure that BOSE has not done fair marking and it has played with our careers,” one of the female student told CNS.
They said that it is unbelievable that not a single Hindi knowing student has acquired A1 or A2 grade. “We appeal BOSE to re-evaluate our Hindi papers and assign the task of marking to any highly qualified Hindi knowing teacher,” they said adding that most of the students of well-established schools have suffered on account of Hindi paper.
When contacted, Secretary BOSE, Reenu Goswami told CNS that agitated students and parents should give a representation to her so that she would address their problem. “If their natter carries weight and reason, we will certainly go for re-marking of Hindi papers,” she said.
