More than 15,000 students in MP applied under the ‘Ruk Jana Nahi’ scheme within two days of opening of registration process on May 20.
The Madhya Pradesh Board of Secondary Education (MPBSE), this month, launched the programme ‘Ruk Jana Nahi’ for the students who have failed in the class 12 MP Board examinations just so they do not lose a year. The same opportunity would be provided to students who failed in the class 10 exams.
The scheme is a part of the state government’s measure to check suicide rate among students who choose to end life after failing in examinations.
The programme has been specifically launched for students who could not clear two or more subjects in the board examination.
According to this programme, the MP State Open Board will give them an opportunity to appear in the exam on June 15. The state open school has also decided to coach the students before the examinations.
‘Coaching would be provided to students by qualified teachers’
Director of MP Open School said, “Coaching of one week would be provided to students by qualified teachers. We are collaborating with private school teachers for the same. Students will only have to attempt those papers in which they failed and the marksheets would be issued by us by compiling the previous marks of board exams and the newly obtained marks. There are high chances that the students will be able to improve their aggregate as well.”
Coaching under the scheme will start from June 8 and will go on till June 14.
To assist the students appearing for Sanskrit Board, the Maharishi Patanjali Sansthan will help the board in conducting coaching classes for the students from June 1 to 8.
The papers will be digitally evaluated to curtail any possibility of errors during checking.
The fees for two subjects is Rs 1,210, for three subjects Rs 1,500, for four subjects Rs 1,760, for five Rs 2,010 and for six subjects, it is Rs 2,060.
The fees for class 10 exams starts from Rs 1,460 (2 subjects) and goes up to Rs 2,210 for five subjects.
The last date for registering for this programme is May 25 and the results are likely to be declared by July 15.
