Students appear matric exam at their own schools

The state government has decided that students of 2,500 schools, which have been identified as examination centres, will appear the High Shool Certificate (HSC) examination at their own school. Students of the remaining schools will also be allotted examination centres within 10 km radius of their school. Earlier, the students appeared for HSC examinations at centres away from their own schools.

The sizeable number of students will appear for the matriculation examination at their own schools, school and mass education minister Rabi Narayan Nanda announced this on Thursday.

“There are 9,000 schools in the state, out of which 2,500 have been identified as examination centres. We cannot afford to allow students of all schools to sit for matriculation examination in their own school. However, we have ensured that students are allotted centres nearest to their school ,” said D.P. Nanda, president of board of secondary education.

The board officials have claimed that the decision will help to reduce exam fear among students as they will be comfortable with the test centre’s atmosphere. “Appearing for examination in another school is often a cause for nervousness, especially if the centres are far away. We have tried our best to lessen the problems of the students,” said a board official.

The matriculation examination will be held from February 25 to March 9. At least five lakh students would write it in the regular stream while 70,000 students will appear the exam in the ex-regular stream. The Board has set up at least 2,500 examination centres located across the state to conduct the examinations for the both the streams. At least 301 nodal centres have been identified in the entire state which would store the question-cum answer sheets in safe custody under police security. (Source – The Times of India)
