‘Mission 100 Day’ to improve SSLC results in DK

Dakshina Kannada which had slipped to the fourth position in the SSLC pass percentage last year had chalked out ‘Mission 100 Day’ programme ahead of the SSLC examinations to improve pass percentage.

Speaking to DH, DDPI Y Shivaramaiah said, “Mission 100-day programme was chalked out to improve the SSLC pass percentage. All efforts have been made by the teachers to help the below average students to excel in the examination which will commence on March 21. A range of activities were planned. We are hopeful of a good performance by our students this year.”

“Our aim was to try to ensure all students pass the SSLC exam. Teachers were trained by resource persons on how to train the below average students. The students were also counselled on how to write the examinations and face them without any fear by keeping aside negative thoughts,” said sources in the department.

As below average and average students cannot grasp the entire syllabus, a few teachers have prepared separate question banks and the students are taught to understand the concepts so that they pass the exam.

In the past, Puttur BEO had initiated Mission 95 Plus to improve the pass percentage in SSLC examinations. To improve the results, night classes were conducted at schools at Hirebandadi, Sulliapadavu, Patte and other places.

Special emphasis has been given for those who are poor in their studies, said sources.

Last year, DK district has obtained a pass percentage of 85.56% with Moodbidri Block securing the highest with 91.05% and Bantwal Block securing lowest with 86.74%.

Sources in Zilla Panchayat said, “The authorities have interacted with the students and parents. Parents have been asked not to instil fear in students. The examination should be taken positively.”

Furthermore, teachers in a few schools are training a few below average students in the morning and evening hours, by making them understand the concepts and helping them revise.

‘Passing package’ system has been initiated in a few schools. A few senior teachers are aware of the most repeatedly asked questions in the examinations and the teachers focus on such questions while teaching the below average students. Further, mock tests were conducted to ward off the fear of examinations among the students.

The DDPI said that a total of 31,192 students will appear for the SSLC examinations, of which 16,645 are male students. The district has 416 repeaters writing privately and 1,170 private candidates.

Dakshina Kannada district has 95 examination centres—Bantwal education block (17), Belthangady (13), Mangaluru North (21), Mangaluru South (21), Moodbidri (5), Puttur (12), and Sullia (6).
