State Education Minister Naeem Akhtar has dismissed speculations that Jammu and Kashmir government was mulling mass promotion to next classes up to 10th standard because of the ongoing unrest that has forced closure of schools for nearly two months.

Akhtar has directed the state board of school education to start preparatory work for conducting exams up to 12th class as he dismissed mass promotions at any level.

Educational institutions, markets, public transports and other businesses remained closed as separatists have already extended protest shutdown till August 25.
