SSLC exam is turning point in a student’s life: DC

March 27, 2023

Mysore/Mysuru: Observing that SSLC is the turning point in a student’s life, Deputy Commissioner (DC) Dr. K.V. Rajendra said that authorities must ensure that there is no scope for any lapses in the conduct of the exam.

He was speaking after presiding over a SSLC exam preparatory meeting at his office here recently.

Pointing out that the district has a total of 148 exam centres this time, including 143 Government and 5 Private ones, the DC said that a total of 37,475 students are writing this exam, for which the officials must make all necessary preparations.

Giving some tips to the exam officials, the DC said that utmost priority must be given for ensuring that no malpractice takes place. Asking the exam centre chiefs to see that there is no scope for any malpractices or lapses, he said that action will be taken against the concerned authorities for any lapses or dereliction of duty.

“The officials must take necessary steps to ensure that exam absence is minimal. Also, it is important to see that children appear for the exam with confidence. It is also advisable that students are counselled so as to drive any exam fear out of them. Besides it should be ensured that students are provided necessary facilities at exam centres,” he said.

Free bus facility

Continuing, the DC said that students can travel in KSRTC buses for free to their exam centre by showing their exam hall ticket. Asking the officials to bring to his notice if there are any problems in KSRTC operations, he said that the problems, if any, will be discussed with the KSRTC authorities for redressal.

    By using phrases like “turning point” we create pressure on students as if SSLC is matter of life and death. Also, I wonder why press conferences are called by Karnataka Education Department to announce SSLC results. Why such hype? Can’t they just issue a notification on its website?
    Yes, 10th grade exams and results are important but people shouldn’t create a perception that if a student doesn’t do well in these exams then it is end of their career and life.

    Nothing like that aty all, for Gowdas and Lingayats. They have reservations, like this fat DC had in his medical college, but could not deliver as a doctor. Gowda brain!
