The students informed that they had deposited required fees for the examinations of 9th and 10th with the administration of Kohistan Public School. When they did not receive their roll number slips, they inquired about the matter from the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE) Kohat, where they were told that the school administration had not sent the forms of 60 students to the board.

The protesters demanded of the government to take action against the school administration for wasting their precious year. They also demanded that special arrangements be made for them to reappear in the exams so that their academic year could not be wasted.
