Hall Tickets for Plus Two, SSLC Students after Practical Exams
Headmasters of high and higher secondary schools have reason to feel relieved this year over the decision of the school education department to issue hall tickets to SSLC and plus two students after the practical examinations.
This year, plus two students will receive their hall tickets only after completion of the practical examinations from 4th February, 2013 to 18th February, 2013. Students tend to absent themselves for the working days after the practical exams and hence the decision, Chief Educational Officer K. Selvakumar said, adding that the same approach will be adopted for issuing hall tickets to SSLC students as well.
The department has, however, handed over the CDs pertaining to the hall tickets to all the school headmasters. They are expected to take print outs and distribute the same towards the end of the working days. There will be about 10 working days after the practical exams before the commencement of the theory exams. Teachers opine that these days will be crucial for preparing the students mentally for the theory examinations with final touch-ups to the portions. School heads and teachers have for years been requesting the State government to conduct the practicals component after the theory examination since there will be sufficient time thereafter.
As practical exams are conducted in two batches, teachers are sent to other places due to which the continuity of preparing students for the theory exams gets disrupted for nearly a fortnight. While the absence of teachers is manageable for bright students, average and below average students find the situation disadvantageous to prepare for the public examinations. Headmasters are hopeful that the students will not absent themselves till the last working day this year.
The school education department in the district has set a target of improving the overall pass percentage in SSLC and Plus Two by five percentage points this time.

HSC Certificates for Vocational Students
The state ministry of higher and technical education has decided to award higher secondary certificates ( HSC ) to students completing vocational education after Std X. They will also be eligible for admission to undergraduate degree courses.
At present, the HSC certificate is given by the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education to students who complete the conventional 10+2 degree courses in arts, science and commerce. The aim of drawing equivalence between HSC and certificate vocational courses is to bring these students into the mainstream so that they can pursue conventional degrees such as engineering and medicine, said Rajesh Tope, state minister of higher and technical education.
He said that close to three lakh students who pass vocational courses annually are set to benefit from this decision. The scheme will be implemented from the 2013 – 14 academic year ( AY ).
The Directorate of Vocational Education and Training ( DVET ), a state board that regulates vocational education in the state, conducts two – year vocational courses through various affiliated institutes in the state. Students who qualify for certificate courses through DVET will receive the +2 HSC degree certificate. A total of 16 such courses are offered by DVET after completion of Std X. Subjects included are electrical maintenance, general civil engineering, carpentry, maintenance and repair of electrical appliances, building maintenance and office management, among others.
“The step has been taken to ensure that vertical mobility is created for these students after they complete their certificate course,” said Tope. “At present, students who undertake vocational education after Std X have limited options and are forced to pursue a career in the vocational segment. But, with an HSC certificate in hand, they can get into engineering, commerce, arts and other such fields. For engineering and medicine, however, they will have to sit for entrance tests like other students.”
Orissa HSC Results declared 2012
The results of Annual High School Certificate ( HSC ) examinations – 2012 in Odisha would be declared on 28th June, 2012.

Steps have also been taken to make available the results through SMS in mobile phones for the convenience of the students, the minister said.
This year’s matriculation examination was mired in controversy when it was found that some question papers of Regular stream were stolen from a centre after examinations began in the third week of March.
Beginning from 19th March, 2012 and scheduled to end on 31st March, 2012, the examination for Regular students was suspended on 21st March, 2012 after the question paper theft case came to light. A total of seven papers of the examination were rescheduled which began on 17th April, 2012 and ended in over 2000 – odd examination centres on 26th April, 2012.
While around 4.5 lakh students appeared in the examination, over 6000 of them were booked for malpractices as they were found resorting to unfair means during the examination.
Similarly, action was taken against at least a dozen of teachers and two centre superintendents for dereliction of duties during the time of the examination.

In Mumbai, of the total 3,908 students appearing for the Class X examination, 1,100 students have opted for school – based assessment.
“Students are upbeat and even though some still visit our school for last – minute tips, most others are relaxing now. We advise students to rest well before the examinations,” said Rakesh Joshi, Principal of Apeejay School in Nerul. A total of 9,822 students will appear for the CBSE Class XII examination from Maharashtra.
The current batch of SSC students will be the first to appear for the changed Science and Maths patterns. “Students have nothing to worry about as schools have informed them well in advance about the changes. Our state board helpline numbers are available for students whenever they need us and our aim is to always make the examination season as stress – free for students as possible,” said Ravindra Bhise, divisional State Board Secretary.
