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.

Misprint in HSC Papers gives Full Marks to Students

Nagpur is some good news for HSC students. All students, who attempted questions of chemistry, physics – II and fisheries having printing errors, will get full marks.

For physics – II, the misprint was worth almost 10% of the total marks. Debashis Bhowmick, Vice – Principal of Nuva College and a PhD in physics, said, “Question number five was about finding the shortest wavelength for Paschen and Brackett series in hydrogen atom. However, instead of mentioning the symbol for angstrom, they printed a symbol which made no sense”.

Sanjay Charalwar, Principal of Mohota Science College said, “The board has committed an error in printing and the usual practice is to give full marks to students who have either attempted the question or even written the question number in the paper”.

There were two such errors in the chemistry subject, with one mistake each in paper – I and II. SS Goyal, lecturer at VB Junior College said, “In the first paper, there were numericals to be solved using Hess’s Law but the data was wrong. They had printed H2O gas whereas H2O liquid should have been mentioned. The board has decided to give full four marks to anyone who attempted the question”. Chemistry paper had same mistake as text book, said Abhishek Choudhari.

The second chemistry paper of HSC examinations had a bigger mistake, due to incorrect data printed in the HSC text book itself,  said SS Goyal, lecturer at VB Junior College . “In the text book, the action of HI on isopropyl methyl ether is mentioned as methyl iodide, while the correct answer is isopropyl iodide.The same question appeared in the paper and the board has decided to give full marks to students who choose either of the two options in the MCQ”, he said.

Mistakes were also spotted in fisheries paper, an optional subject in the science stream. Sameer Phale, lecturer at Ambedkar College ( Deekshabhoomi ) said, “Spelling mistakes were galore in the fisheries paper, thus inconvenience to students. It is surprising that a question paper is set at the state level with so many people involved, and errors slip through so many levels of verification”.

Rasesh Patel, an HSC student, said, “Whenever there is an error in the question paper we ourselves get confused if we are wrong. Precious minutes are wasted trying to find our mistake, whereas the fault lies in the question”.

His friend Hemul Joshi said, “The board gives bonus marks only if we attempt the question, but if we did not understand it in the first place then we won’t attempt it either. Board should give bonus marks to everyone”.
