Responding to the public queries regarding change in academic calendar, the Education Department today made it clear that the academic session in the educational institutions of Kashmir division and the winter zone of Jammu division shall remain as it used to be prior to the September 2014 floods.

It further stated that in order to cover the loss of time due to extended academic session of 2014-15, there shall be no summer vacation in the educational institutions of Kashmir division and Winter Zone of Jammu division this year.

Moreover, the institutions have been asked to take care of any further loss of studies due to shortened academic session 2015-16, by arranging extra classes for the students where-ever required so that the students are ready for examinations by the year-end.

Pertinently, in view of the instructions issued by the Education Department, the examinations upto 10+2 level would be now again conducted in October-November instead of March-April, as was done as a special dispensation after September 2014 floods.

“We have asked the J&K State Board of School Education (BOSE) authorities to prepare for examinations to be conducted in October-November as was the practice before September 2014 floods,” said Education Minister, Mr Naeem Akhtar.
