Unlike other government schools in the district, the government is providing all benefits to Senior Secondary Residential School for Meritorious Students.
On the one hand, the government had failed to provide answersheets to students of government schools, on the other hand, the students at the residential school will give their summative assessments 1 on registers, which are much costlier than answersheets, which will be held on Monday.
The school has strength of 307 students and each student had been given a separate registers for every exam.
A teacher at government primary school Balbir Singh said, “The government provides only one question paper for each class and according to the strength we photocopy the question papers. Teachers contribute and purchase answersheets and then the students are able to give their exam.”
He added, “If the government can provide registers to meritorious school students than they should at least provide answersheets to other government school students.”
It was worth mentioning here that the students will use the same register for both October and March assessment exams and in March exams, the paper will be set considering the whole syllabus, so there were chances of cheating.
Keeping in view, project director Major General (retd) KAS Bhullar instructed principals of meritorious school to take the exams on answersheets, but meritorious school in the city had already purchased the registers.
Officiating principal of meritorious school Anoop Kumar Passi said, “As per instructions from the project director, we purchased the registers for the SA 1, but last week, we received a letter to take the exam on answersheets instead of registers. We have already purchased registers, so for next assessment, to be held in March, we will make the students give the exam on answer sheets.”
