Agony encore of SSLC evaluation

Agony encore of SSLC evaluation

Two days after the exam results were out, umpteen students poured in at the Board to report grievances and apply for photocopies and revaluation of papers. While most students complained that Mathematics and Science papers had not been evaluated as expected, other students were dissatisfied with Social Science and English evaluation.

Neetu of Sishugriha School said “There was no necessity to hurry up the correction the way the board did this year. Students have got nearly 20-30 marks less than expected in mathematics and science.”

Harshith of Prarthana School said he would apply for revaluation of his Mathematics and
Science answer scripts. His mother Chandralekha said "We have no complaints about other subjects, but a difference of 15-20 marks in Mathematics and Science is a lot." Likith of St.Sophia felt that he had been awarded nearly 20 marks less than what he had expected in Mathematics.

Hemalatha of Sri Vani Girl's High School and Jyothi of St. Ann's High School were dissatisfied with their Social Science marks and intend to apply for revaluation. Srinivasaiah Iyer, father of Shilpa, another student who plans to apply for a revaluation of Mathematics, Science and English, said it  would be unjust to blame the Board without going through the performance of the candidate.

None of the students seem to attribute the difference in scores to the change in the question paper pattern. Director of the KSEEB M N Baig said “There are no major complaints, or anything different. The parents come to us saying their children have done well, and we are trying to give them the right results.”  He added, “The pattern hasn't changed either. Students generally complain about mathematics evaluation, followed by science, social science and English. This year too, the same trend continues.”
