SMALL TOWN students dominated the MP Board of Secondary Education (MPBSE) High School examination merit list this year. In the overall 41.82 per cent result, girls once again outshone boys.
A significant 8.5 per cent increase over the last year’s 33.50 per cent result bears an imprint of the multi-pronged strategy of the School Education department for improving performance.
The result, announced today, also recorded a 10 per cent improvement in government schools’ performance — 37.67 per cent as compared to the last yearr’s 27.84 per cent.
In 2005 the overall pass percentage was 33.50 while that of government schools was 27.84 per cent. In 2003 a low overall result of 25.88 percent was recorded that went up in 2004 to 29.19 per cent.
Girls have fared better with 43.99 pass percentage against 40.51 recorded by boys. However, the gap between the girls’ and boys’ performance reduced considerably this time.
The private students fared badly this year with 12.79 pass percentage. Students of big cities were a big letdown as no students from Bhopal, Indore or Jabalpur proper found place in the merit list. Only one student from Gwalior secured the sixth rank.
Damoh district put up a good show with eight students, including the State topper, securing slots in the merit list. Vikas Kumar Tamrakar, a student of Jageshwarnath HS School, Hindoria, Damoh, topped, scoring 484 out of the 500 marks (96.8 per cent).
A total of 31 students, including 20 boys and 11 girls, were placed in the top ten merit positions. Of them, 11 students secured ninth rank and seven students with identical marks were placed at tenth position.
The second position went to Priyam Jain of Saroj Convent HS School, Tikamgarh. He scored 481 marks (96.2 per cent). Vaibhav Shrivastava of Saraswati HS School, Lakhnadaun, Seoni, who scored 478 marks (95.6 per cent marks), secured the third position.
The result was formally announced by School Education Minister Narottam Mishra in presence of MPBSE chairman U K Samal, Principal Secretary of School Education Anshu Vaish and Commissioner of Public Instructions L S Baghel. The Minister expressed satisfaction at improvement in the result.
He said the Directorate of Public Instruction’s strategy to conduct special remedial classes for weak students, appointment of guest teachers and preparation of CDs of tough subjects like mathematics, science and English paid off.
CPI Baghel said conducting remedial classes was the best among the strategies. He highlighted the fact that the result at over 40 per cent has been achieved despite grace marks being reduced from 20 to 5. In 2003 when the grace marks were reduced for the first time, the result had slumped to 25.88 per cent.
From Damoh eight students, including topper Vikas, have made it to the high school merit list. Five had made it to the higher secondary merit list. Small town students with three students from Harda and two students each from Shahdol, Dhar, Bhind, Balaghat, Neemuch and Katni made it to the list.
Five students of government schools also found place in the list. Students of government schools posted 37.84 per cent result against 27.84 per cent posted last year. Private school students also showed some improvement, recording 46.59 per cent against 41.94 per cent.
The MPBSE chairman said cases of unfair means were considerably less this year. A total of 6,098 cases of unfair means — mainly copying —were recorded as against over 9,000 cases last year. . Of them, about 3,017 students were held at nine
centres of Sidhi district in cases of mass copying. This number was more than 6,000 last year and as high as 8,134 in 2004.
STUDENTS WILL be allowed to apply for re-totalling within 15 days after the results on payment of Rs 100 per paper. The students can use the marksheets downloaded from the Internet to apply for retotalling.
To prevent misuse of the marksheets-cum-certificates to be issued to the students, the Board decided to undertake special security printing of the mark-sheets. The monogram of the Board has been inserted in the mark-sheets through hot stamping and special anti-photocopy device has been used, which would ensure that the photocopy of the mark-sheet appears in colour different than the original mark sheets.
These mark-sheets would be sent out to the institutes concerned at the earliest for distribution.
Supple exam on July 2
THE SUPPLEMENTARY exams for the Standard X will be conducted by the board on July 2 between 10.00 am and 1.00 pm for all students. A total of 78,973 regular students and 6,959 private students have been given benefit of supplementary in one subject.
This year too, the students will not be required to apply separately for the supplementary exams. Lists of students, who have supplementary, would be sent to the schools concerned. The school authorities will collect the fees from the students and acquire admit cards from the board and distribute it to students.
