Science beats maths in difficulty test

Science beats maths in difficulty test

Science, not mathematics, seems to be the most difficult among the core subjects for students who took the SSLC examination.

For, as many as 123 students have failed to obtain even a single mark in the science paper. In mathematics, the number of students with zero marks is 62. Science also had the least number of students who scored a perfect 100. Only 48 students managed the feat.

Mathematics is the subject to score as 499 students have obtained a perfect 100 in it. Social science had 347 students achieving 100 per cent, followed by First Language with 284 cent per cent scorers, Second Language with 166, and Third Language 117.

The number of students drawing a blank is the highest in the First Language. A total of 178 students have achieved the dubious distinction. Second Language had 69 zero scorers and Third Language 34.

Revaluation, re-totalling

Students who think their result does not reflect their hard work can apply for revaluation and re-totalling.

They can also seek photocopies of the answer scripts. The last date for sending such applications is May 28. Those who apply for photocopies should not apply for re-totalling, and vice-versa. Candidates must apply for revaluation within seven days of receiving the photocopies.

The fees are as follows:
• Re-totalling for one subject: Rs 150
• Photocopy for one subject: Rs 300
• Revaluation for one subject: RS 700
Supplementary exam
The fees are as follows:
• For one subject: Rs 100
• For two subjects: Rs 250
• For more than two subjects: Rs 315

The last date to pay the fees is May 26. The last date for sending the applications to the Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board (KSEEB) is May 29.
Failed students who have applied for re-totalling or photocopies should not wait for the results of the same, and must apply for the supplementary exams before the last date.
