Bagepalli gears up to secure 100 pc results in SSLC this year

To ensure good results in SSLC examinations this year, several efforts have been taken up in Bagepalli taluk.

Last year, the taluk had secured 73.10 per cent results in the SSLC examinations. Though the performance of students in the taluk had been good, the aim this year seems to be to fare much better.

Of the 40 high schools in Bagepalli taluk, 20 are government run, while two are aided and 18 are un-aided schools. As many as 2,589 students will appear for SSLC examinations that will begin on April 1.

Students will be writing their exams in five centres in Bagepalli town.

A majority of schools in the taluk have completed syllabi by December. Added to this, students were made to write unit tests after completion of each of the lessons. Special classes were conducted for students who were lagging behind in studies. In a few schools, special classes were held for all students in the evening and snacks and beverages too were provided. Whereas in all schools additional classes were taken for two hours prior to regular classes and two hours after the school hours. In a few private schools night classes too are being conducted to boost students’ performance.
This year the examinations will be held between 9:30 am and 12:45 pm. And 15 minutes will be assigned for reading the question paper alone. To avoid incidences of malpractice, special vigilance squads have been set up. Moreover, this year, as many as 10 superintendents and nearly 120 teachers will be posted as invigilators in ten examination centres.

On preparation for the forthcoming SSLC examinations in the taluk, Block Education Officer K Venkatesh said: “ To ascertain good student performance, subject-wise teachers have had several meetings with parents. Also three preparatory exams will be held to ensure students are well prepared. Under the guidance of Headmasters’ Association each of the schools in Bagepalli has been given cassettes of Kannada, Hindi and English poems, prepared in Hassan.”

“This time a decision has been taken to provide butter milk to students, as they will be writing their exams in the peak of summer. Also to make sure students do not fall sick while writing exams, taluk medical officers have been urged to post nurses at examination centres. With all these measures in place, we aim to achieve 100 per cent results in SSLC exams this year,” he added.

Students should not dither and fear examination. Instead they should remain calm and bring out their best in the examinations. Thus, good results was a testimony of efforts of both students and teachers, said retired headmaster N Baiyappa Reddy.
