20 SSLC students debarred in Bidar

By Our Staff Correspondent



Students writing the SSLC examination at the Al-Mahaboob School in Bidar on Monday were put to hardship because of lack of furniture.


BIDAR, MARCH 22. On the first day of the Secondary School Leaving Certificate examination, which began on Monday, 20 students were debarred for malpractice and 16 were expelled for irregularities in Bidar district.

Of those debarred, 14 were from the Government Junior College in Mudabi in Basavkalyan taluk, two each from the Shantivardhak Pre University College in Kamalnagar and the Government High School in Holasamudra in Aurad taluk and one each from the Government High School in Manthal in Basavkalyan taluk and the Government Junior College in Halbarga in Bhalki taluk. As many as 24,232 students, (14,048 boys and 10,184 girls) appeared for the first language examination in 66 centres.

There are 21 centres in Bidar taluk, 11 each in Aurad and Bhalki, nine in Basavkalyan and 14 in Humnabad. Officials have identified 14 centres across the district as sensitive.

The district administration has formed 35 squads with six working in each taluk and five other district-level squads.

Cluster system of examination where students and teachers of one school are distributed among at least three other schools was introduced for the first time in 12 centres in Bidar city.

This is expected to reduce malpractice. But some parents complained that their children have been sent to schools that did not have proper infrastructure.

Some parents of those writing the examination at the Al-Mahaboob School offered to provide 50 tables from the Rotary Club and the local Guru Nanak School. There are 250 students in that centre.

The chief examiner in that school alleged that though students of 19 schools were appearing for the examination in his school, none of those schools had spared their furniture.

Three students

Our Gulbarga Special Correspondent reports:

Three students appearing for the SSLC examination, which began on Monday in the Sate, were expelled for alleged examination malpractices. They were writing the examination at three centres — National High School and Government Girls High School in Gulbarga city and another at Shahabad town in Chitapur taluk.

The Education Department has constituted 18 vigilance squads manned by senior officials to conduct surprise checks at the examination centres to prevent malpractices during the examination this year.

Sources said here that in the Gulbarga Education District, 1,22,410 students were appearing for the examination at 77 centres and in the Yadgir Education District 9,500 students were appearing for the examination at 27 centres.

The police have made elaborate security arrangements and have promulgated prohibitory order around examination centres to prevent malpractices.

With most examination centres lacking infrastructure, students were forced to sit on the floor to write the examination. Oppressive weather conditions added to the problems faced by the students.
