Paanali Patil (17) a Class 12 student of Modern College in Vashi received a shock in the midst of her exam preparation. The hall ticket she received had the photograph of a male student. Following a meeting of the Shiv Sena delegation with the Mumbai board officials, she got the error corrected. The Board has assured that all such problems will be rectified.
Said Paanali, “I received my hall ticket on Wednesday and was shocked to see a boy’s photograph on it. He is not even in my class. I have to appear for EVS exam on Friday and then the practical examinations start. I was really scared that I wouldn't be allowed to appear and hence approached the board.”
Local Shiv Sena workers joined Paanali, who is a Shiv Sena leader’s daughter, to approach the board office in Vashi. When the matter was brought to the notice of the Mumbai Divisional Board Secretary, Basanti Roy, she immediately issued a corrected hall ticket. A spelling mistake in the hall ticket of another student was also corrected.
Explained Roy, “Around 6 lakh students are appearing for the SSC and HSC examinations and hence such teething problems do occur. However anyone facing such problems can come to the board and we shall solve their problem immediately.”
Added Roy, “In case there is not enough time, the colleges can inform the examination centre about the problem. We shall give instructions to the centres accordingly.”
Concluded Roy, “The colleges too need to take up the responsibility when they collect the hall tickets. They can directly inform us about the discrepancies. The students will then not face any problem.”
