Bucking up to push up SSLC pass percentage

With the SSLC exams round the corner, the Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board (KSEEB) has issued a number of guidelines to be followed by education officials and school authorities to ensure that schools attain a good pass percentage.

In as many as five aided and 30 unaided schools, the pass percentage was zero last year, says a circular by KSEEB. 

On the other hand, 1,272 schools achieved cent per cent results. KSEEB has asked non-performing schools to emulate these schools and adopt their best practices to improve students’ performance.  The deputy directors of Public Instruction (DDPIs) have been directed to appoint nodal officers to keep track of each school and compile a progress report to be submitted to KSEEB. 

Regular preparatory exams should be conducted for the SSLC students. Based on the performance of the students in these exams, remedial measures will be taken. KSEEB has recommended parent-teacher meetings to assess childrens’ performance. The State Development Monitoring Committees and members of the Gram Panchayat need to be regularly updated about the students’ progress, the circular says. 

The students should be acquainted with question paper patterns of the previous years and tips and information on the SSLC exams that appear in the media should be passed on to the children, it says.  “This is the first time that these guidelines have been issued by KSEEB for the entire State. In previous years, this was mostly done by the respective district offices,” said Nagendra Kumar, secretary, KSEEB.
