Srinivaspur students top SSLC prep exams in Kolar district

Malur, Bangarpet remain at the bottom

Malur and Bangarpet taluks are at the end of the list in the experimental efforts on the part of the Board to improve the SSLC results in the district.

As many as 21,820 students attended the special preparatory exams, but only 11,817 students have passed, giving the district just 54.16 per cent. Srinivaspur taluk topped the list with 74.63 per cent; Mulbagal taluk was second with 59.90 per cent; Kolar was third with 59.68 per cent and Kolar Gold Fields with 50.54 per cent. Malur was last with 35.73 per cent, and Bangarpet second last with 39.29 per cent.

District Nodal Officer A N Nagendra Prasad gave the figures while explaining the progress taluk-wise through a power-point presentation during the fifth meeting of school heads organised by the Board at Chennayya Rangamandira on Friday.

Take measures

Kolar Deputy Commissioner Manoj Kumar Meena instructed the institute heads and education officers in Bangarpet and Malur region to take measures to ensure improvement in the final exam results.

“As many as 8,000 students failed last year's SSLC exams. It is therefore a serious matter that the preparatory exams conducted now have shown 10,000 students as having failed,” the DC said and advised that students should not be brought under unnecessary pressure.

“Try to improve their moral and psychological strength. Also, prevent any misdeeds during exams. Convince the students that they are not ways to get good results,” he stressed to the institute heads.

‘Raise to third position’

Kolar district stands 30th in the result list. Everybody should work to raise it to the third position in the State. Teachers and officers should take pride in working towards this goal and cooperate with one another in achieving it, the DC advised.

Scholarships

Students belonging to Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe, who had scored highest in the SSLC exams last year, were given symbolic scholarship cheques at the programme.
Education Department deputy director Prahlad Gowda informed that Rs 30.20 lakh has been approved and the Department itself has given the cheques to the students.

Everybody will be given the money soon, he promised.

Zilla Panchayat chief executive officer N Shantappa, regional education officers from all taluks in the district, heads of 75 schools and nodal officers were present during the occasion. A discussion on the taluk-level results followed the programme.
