JKBOSE issues Important Guidelines for Upcoming Annual Examinations

As the annual examinations conducted by the Jammu and Kashmir Board of School Education (JKBOSE) approach, it becomes imperative for all students to be aware of the guidelines set forth by the board to ensure fair and smooth conduct of the exams. These guidelines are not only crucial for maintaining the integrity of the examination process but also for preventing any unfair means that may jeopardize the credibility of the results. Let’s delve into the key instructions provided by JKBOSE for the upcoming annual examinations:

1. Proper Identification:

  • Students are required to write their Roll Number in the designated boxes on the right-hand side of the title page of the answer book. This helps in maintaining anonymity during evaluation.

  • It is mandatory to use blue color ink or ball pen for writing answers. The use of green, red, black, or any other colored ink is strictly prohibited.
