HEARING A matter relating to the self-centre examination scheme, the Allahabad High Court has directed the secretary, Board of High School and Intermediate Education, to furnish details of the percentage of students passing out High School and Intermediate examination in the year just before the self-centre examination scheme came into force and also in the last three years.
Passing these directives, Justice SN Srivastava directed the secretary to furnish the list of un-aided colleges and schools found unfit for holding Board of High School and Intermediate examination under the self-centre examination scheme.
On Tuesday, the arguments of Advocate-General SMA Kazmi, representing the state government, remained inconclusive. The court directed to put up the matter on Wednesday for further arguments.
The court passed this order on a writ petition filed by the committee of management of Mohan Singh Inter College of Mathura district.
The petitioner had challenged an order of the Madhyamik Siksha Parishad, UP, by which the college was removed from the self-centre list.
At one stage on November 1, the court had asked the State government to show cause as to why the new system of self-center examination be not replaced by the old system.
The court was of the view that because of self-centre examination i.e. examination at the same college where the student is studying, incidents of mass copying had become a trade in Uttar Pradesh.
