Having burnt its fingers with declaration of Intermediate (Class 11 and 12) examination results last month hurriedly resulting in exposure of large scale goofs-up, the Telangana government has taken utmost care and caution in the release of the Secondary School Certificate (Class 10) examination results.
An official release from the Director of Government Examinations on Friday said the SSC examination results will be declared at 11.30am in the state secretariat on Monday (May 13).
According to the DGE, the results will be available on the official website of the Telangana state board of secondary education: www.bse.telangana.gov.in and also at http://results.cgg.gov.in, soon after they are announced.
The results will be sent school wise and the school principals are directed to be present in their respective schools on the results day.
The Class 10th examinations 2019 were held from March 16 to April 2. Normally, the results would be declared within three weeks. But following the alleged bungling in the declaration of Intermediate examination results, the Directorate of Government Examinations decided to double-check the results of the students before they were announced.
A senior official of the education department who preferred anonymity said the Telangana government had issued strict instructions to the SSC board not to give any scope for any goofs-up in the declaration of results. “Intermediate examination results had to be hurried through as they are linked with other examination like engineering entrance tests. But there is no such hurry for Class X students. They can wait for the results, which we want to make fool-proof,” he said.
Secretary (Education) B Janardhan Reddy, who held a meeting with officials of the directorate of the examinations and SSC board last week, instructed that the evaluators make a double-check of the results before they were tabulated.
“Out of 11 papers for six subjects, if a student passes in 10 papers and gets less marks in just one paper, his paper has to be re-evaluated again. Similarly, if a student gets 90 per cent marks in five subjects and gets very less marks in one subject, such papers should also be re-evaluated,” he instructed.
The authorities have also taken enough precautions to do re-checking of answer sheets in case there are major deviations in marks of a student – getting very high marks in a few subjects and abnormally low in other subjects.
Reddy also reportedly directed the officials to provide an exclusive web link to all the schools for convenience of students to view the results and to make special arrangement at DGE office to address objections raised by students immediately over online.
The authorities are also planning to launch a mobile application through which students and parents can submit their grievances, if any, with regard to the marks obtained in SSC examinations. “The student would get an acknowledgement who submit their grievance immediately while the issue would be resolved in two days,” the officials said.
The government also conducted counselling sessions for students and parents on the announcement of results, so that they should not get disturbed mentally when the students get lesser marks or fail in the examinations. “After all, life is more important than marks. We shall correct ourselves if there are any mistakes from our side. But parents should also ensure that their wards do not get disheartened if they fail or get lesser marks in the examinations,” the official said.
