Rude shock for 89 students

IT WAS a rude shock for 89 students of the Chokhraj Tulsiyan College in Maharajganj district. Computer generated mark sheets, obtained from cyber cafes, showed them as absent during the examination and said they had failed. This was so even though some of them had secured reasonably good marks. For instance, Abhishek Yadav (roll number 2182281) had secured 393 out of 600 marks, but was marked absent and declared failed.

IT WAS a rude shock for 89 students of the Chokhraj Tulsiyan College in Maharajganj district. Computer generated mark sheets, obtained from cyber cafes, showed them as absent during the examination and said they had failed.

This was so even though some of them had secured reasonably good marks.
For instance, Abhishek Yadav (roll number 2182281) had secured 393 out of 600 marks, but was marked absent and declared failed.

Yadav had secured 72 per cent marks in Hindi and English each, 90 per cent marks in Mathematics, 74 in Science and 85 in Social Science. Similarly, Sanjaya Kumar Tripathi, a student of the same college (roll number 2182462) got 399 out of 600 marks. But, he, too, was shown as absent and declared failed. Tripathi got 78 per cent marks in Hindi, 77 in English, 89 in Mathematics, 82 in Science and 73 in Social Science.

Three students of the college had figured on the Intermediate examination merit list.

Gorakhpur draws a blank
NO STUDENT from Gorakhpur division figured on the UP Board High School  toppers’ list. The result was declared on Thursday. Principals of various institutions said the result was unexpected.

However, the percentage of marks secured by the students was satisfactory.
A principal said schools with better management ability were able to ensure their students secured a place on the merit list. He said education had become a profession.

Government Jubilee Inter College principal Dr OP Rai said he was very hopeful students of his college would maintain the tradition and secure one or two places on the merit list, but the result was disappointing.

MG Inter College principal RK Srivastava said the manner of evaluation of answer sheets also affected the result.  Last year, a student of MP Inter College Manish secured the 16th place on the merit list.
