To the dismay of the Separatists, hundreds of students appeared for the Class X and XII board examinations on Tuesday in the Kashmir Valley.

According to various estimates, the turnout was an overwhelming 95 per cent which clearly showed that the call of the Separatists to boycott the exams have failed.


Kashmir has been in a state of unrest since the July 8 killing of Burhan Wani. Schools have remained shut due to clashes between stone-pelters and security forces which left around 90 dead, including some security force personnel. Over 17000, including security force personnel, have been left injured in the violence.

The state government has made adequate arrangements for the smooth conduct of the examinations, which will last till December 3.


Over 1000 exam centres have been set up for both the class X and XII students.

But what actually slammed the Separatists hard was the enthusiasm of the students who came to give their exams. The government relaxed the exam rules to help the students prepare. Since the conflict led to the closure of the schools in the Valley, the exam syllabus was halved.

Around 30 schools were torched by the mod during the protests.
