Parents, pupils throng SSLC Board office

Geetha, a mother of an SSLC student came alone from JP Nagar to apply for revaluation.  “My son, who has scored 84 per cent, has lost distinction marks by one percent.  He needs that extra one percent to boost his overall percentage to get a seat in a good college,” she said. 

There were many students who had secured marks in 80s and 90s and were still not happy with their marks.  One student had secured 114 out of 125 marks applied for revaluation.  "I had secured full marks in Sanskrit in my preparatory exam, I am sure I had done well in the final exam too.  Why should I lose marks?" he said.

For students in Bangalore, it was easy to bring their parents to apply for revaluation.  In many cases, it was either the mother or the father, who brought their children to apply for revaluation and were helping them to file revaluation forms.

However for outstation students, it was a difficult task to apply for revaluation as they had to depend on their relative in Bangalore to do the needful for them.  Like in the case of Mahanteshwari from St Joseph's Convent Girls High School from Gulbarga who had secured single digit marks in English and Maths.  "English is my favourite subject; there is no way I can fail in that subject.  I had done well in my preparatory exams, I have no idea how I got single digit marks," said Mahanteshwari.  She has secured 92 in Kannada, 73 in Hindi, 62 in Science, 80 in Social studies but 04 in English and 07 in Maths.
