Dear Editor, Shifting of exam session of 1st Primary to Higher Secondary Level from November to March requires a relook and rethinking before a final decision is made. It is a fact that in outside States Colleges session start from July and students have to wait for six months but it is the problem of only one class and not all other classes.If November session encourage private coaching then why not to ban this this tuition culture and end this menace. However change of session from November to March will lead to a number of problems. The problems include that exams of various classes will be held in March and will last upto middle of April including practicals.Then another 40-50 days will be involved to wait for the result to come out .It means that students have to wait till May ending,the admission will start in June and last upto July.New academic session will start in the month of July.After that there will be only five months left upto November for the academic session, out of which at least one and a half month will go to holidays. It means that there are only 110-120 days for class work.Whereas class work of 220 days is required to complete the syllabus. That if winter breaks/holidays are to be cut short then Winter Zone areas it will not be possible to continue classes in chilly month of November to December as there is no proper heating arrangement in schools of zone areas. November session once exams are over students have to wait for result during winter breaks.New admission upto Middle classes is completed before winter break.New session start from the 1st March for all classes providing required days to complete the syllabus. It is pertinent to mention here that keeping in view the Assembly Election it is requested that the exam from 10th to 12th class should be conducted in October 2019 so that the students may not face inclement weather conditions in Doda, Kishtwar and Ramban Districts.
