Faking class 10 results: Schools detain 50 percent students to get cent percent results
Srinagar: Bellying the tall claims of the school education department in bolstering the performance of the students in class 10th exams, most of the schools detained more than 50 percent students to achieve 100 percent results in the class10th exams.
For instance, in Kupwara district the school heads didn’t allow all the enrolled students to take up the JK Board of School Education (BOSE) exams to achieve good results.
Authorities of the government high school Rangpath in Kupwara district allowed only 8 out of 17 students of class 10th to appear in the class 10 exams. All the nine students qualified the exams with pass percentage of the schools touching 100 percent.
The detained students will now appear as fresh private candidates in the supplementary exams slated in the month of February.
Similarly, another school in Srinagar also detained six out of 12 students in class 10th exams. The left out six students were allowed to appear as regular candidates in JKBOSE exams. The pass percentage of the school again was declared as 100 percent.
“The achievement of these schools is nothing more than an illusion as the government schools have not presented a realistic picture of the students. These schools achieved good results at the cost of the future of students who were not allowed to appear as regular candidates in the JKBOSE exams,” said an official.
The result of annual 2018 class 10th was declared by JKBOSE on December 29. As per the BOSE figures, around 55472 students- 28636 boys and 26836 girls from government and private schools had appeared in the exams out of which 41846 students were declared as qualified with an overall pass percentage of 75.44 percent.
The school education department has already constituted a committee to ascertain how many students were detained by the concerned schools in violation of rules.
Notably, the government in 2015 had barred the schools to
block any student from appearing as regular students. The directions were given with an aim to get the realistic picture of the academic standards in government schools.
