Glorious success in Board exams

The Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB) on 2nd June 2011, Thursday declared the SSC result with the topper scoring 71.06 per cent and breaking the records of the past 19 years board history. The last highest per cent was 70.65 in 2007.
Compared to the previous year, 1.39 lakh more students have passed the exam this year. Officials however attributed this high score to the new exam pattern which is implemented from this year to make the SSC exam burden-free. Each paper had a multiple choice question section carrying 50% marks, while the rest 50% was subjective. The objective-type questions gave the students an opportunity to score better. It was after the recommendation made by Sudhir Mankad committee on examination reforms that this new exam format was adopted.
This high SSC result, however, comes as a surprise after the HSC (Science) and General stream results had been very low in the past six years. Girls continue to outnumber the boys in SSC as 76.70 per cent girls passed the exams in contrast to 67.82 per cent boys.

Glorious success in Board exams

GSHSEB, with its policy of not declaring the top 10 rankers in the state, allotted the students grades, percentile as well as marks. According to the Board officials, 6,913 students scored 99 percentile in the state, with 7,476 students getting A1 grade (91 to 100 marks) and 56,625 students getting A2 grade (between 81 to 90 marks).
Banaskantha district recorded the highest per cent of 85.07, while Vadgam centre recorded the highest 97.14 per cent record. The lowest result of 54.84% was recorded in Tapi district, while Bahiyal centre recording 18.85% result.

Times View: Though the grading system, introduced in class X and XII Board exams in Gujarat this year, have left many students initially perplexed, yet it has succeeded in reducing their exam stress. Few students committed suicide being unsatisfied with their scores. After the declaration of the merit lists, some parents complained of the competitive spirit being missing and their children not paying enough attention to their studies. But stressed out students killing themselves was too heavy a price to pay for a few marks more. Hopefully, grading will lead to a better system of education encouraging students to go beyond marks and learn by rote.

Just 100 copying cases this year: The Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB) officials said that this year registered 100 cases of copying in the SSC and HSC Science and General stream exams. Over 14 lakh students had appeared for the SSC and HSC board exams. This year 28 cases of copying were recorded in SSC and 23 cases of copying were recorded in HSC (Science) which counted to 280 and 49 respectively in the last year.

School Statistics:
Schools scoring 100% result: 593 (146 more than last year).
Schools getting less than 30% result: 327 (568 less than last year).
