SRINAGAR – Jammu and Kashmir Board of School Education (BOSE) Thursday declared the results of class 10th regular examination 2019 for Kashmir division.

Officials in the JKBOSE said that 74.79 per cent students have qualified the examination this year. However, no position holders have been declared by JKBOSE so far.

The officials said that a total of 65393 students appeared in the Class 10th regular examination 2019. “Out of 65393 students, 33981 were boys and 31412 girls. 75 per cent boys and 74.55 per cent girls passed,” they said.

Officials said that 48905 students qualified in Class 10th examinations, adding that 16412 didn’t qualify.

It is worth to mention here that the results amid the internet gag in the Valley was declared through SMS, Gazettes. The students would otherwise check their result on internet, but, this time, the situation was different as the authorities in absence of internet services resorted to manual procedure and declared result through SMS and Gazettes.

Pertinently, the examination for Class 10th started in October ending and culminated in mid-November.

The examination was held even as the students had not completed the syllabus due to the closure of educational institutions across the Valley. The educational institutions remained closed for over three months due to uncertainty that gripped Kashmir following the abrogation of Jammu and Kashmir’s special status (Article 370) and bifurcation of erstwhile State into two Union Territories—Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh on August 5, last year.
