Head teachers of schools should pay greater attention to students who got poor grades in the recent SSLC preparatory exams, said District Nodal Officer (Examination) A N Nagendra Prasad.

He was addressing a meeting of head teachers of schools at T Chennayya Rangamandira on Tuesday, in relation to the results of the third preparatory exams held recently.

“The SSLC exams are just round the corner. If we need too improve the results in the exams, we need to concentrate on the weaker students, naturally,” he reminded the teachers.

“Most students would have prepared well. They would also have been well informed about the subjects for the exams. But they very often are unaware how to convert the information into good answers in the exams, which is the only way to get high marks. We need to guide the students on these lines,” he added.

Students should also be taught how to utilise the first 15 minutes while answering an exam. “Make sure there are no obstructions to their speed in answering. The staff should cooperate with the exam candidates in every way,” he reminded.

‘Improve the figures’

The district had 15,976 students answering the 3rd preparatory exams for the SSLC exams. The results have shown that only 12,112 students have passed, said Prasad.
Reminding that the Department of Public Instruction had conducted the exams to improve the pass percentage, Prasad said “The district has got merely 75.81 per cent as pass, as 3,864 students failed the 3rd preparatory exams.”

Srinivaspur retains the first place in the percentage of students who passed the preparatory exams, while Malur is in the last place. “The head teachers of schools from taluks with low pass percentage should put in greater effort to improve the performance,” said the nodal officer.

“The performance of unaided high schools have got 87.30 per cent students passing the preparatory exams,” Prasad said, adding that aided schools, in turn, had 73.73 per cent passing. “Government schools come third, with 67.38 per cent.”


Deputy Director of the Department of Public Instruction S V Padmanabh said the students should be prepared in a way as to ensure Kolar district ranks within the first 10 in the SSLC results.

Education Officer Jayarama Reddy gave several suggestions to the teachers on improvement of results.

Malur Education Officer Subramani, Kolar Education Officer Shivalingaiah, Kolar Gold Fields Education Officer Krishnamurthy, Bangarpet Education Officer K Jayaraj and head teachers of all high schools in the district were present on the occasion.
