Mir said that no shortcomings will be tolerated. “This definitely has caused stress to students. Their paper will be held again. And no mistake will be tolerated,” he said.

On Wednesday, the class 12th physical education students were given the question paper of class 11th in the examination halls, causing grief and anger among the students and parents. The J&K board of school education cancelled the exam of the said subject, and the government ordered an inquiry to be conducted by a two-member committee comprising directors of school education from Kashmir and Jammu divisions.

The Committee has been asked to inquire into the incident of the wrong distribution of 11th-class question papers to 12th-class students who appeared in the board examination.

“The terms of reference shall be to look into circumstances of the cancellation of the examination and fixing of the responsibility for negligence at supervisory and administrative level,” the order said.

The committee was also directed to co-opt any chief education officer (as required) or any other officer and submit its findings or report to the administration within seven days.
