Education dept announces a slew a measures to clean up the system

After repeated complaints about paper leaks and malpractices over the years in SSLC and II PU board examinations, the department of education is busy revamping the system. While the examination and evaluation process was smooth this year by adopting various technologies like CCTV cameras inside the examination hall, now the primary and secondary education minister has a comprehensive plan — conduct SSLC and PU board exams together!

The government is planning to implement the plan starting from March-April 2018. Primary and Secondary Education minister Tanveer Sait told BM, “We are planning to have SSLC and II PU exams together. Students should sit together and write the exam. What will happen is, one, II PU students will have a lesser chance to indulge in any malpractice and SSLC students as well. This will be done across the state. We will make the time table in such a way that, there is no overlap on the subjects.”

“We are planning to do this. A committee will sit and work out a plan and we will release it soon,” added Sait.

The move is also aimed at merging the services of invigilators for both, besides putting an end to duplication. The minister also said, “We should depute invigilators for SSLC and give transportation for them as well as the same procedure with the PU board examinations as well. Both the departments are doing the same work. By this, invigilators will also be reduced and same transportation facility will be utilized. This will save a lot of work for both the departments.”

Subhashini S, a student at Sri Ramakrishna Vidyaniketana Residential School in Shivamogga, was a tad disappointed when the SSLC exam results were declared in May. She missed three marks in Kannada, her first language, but scored a perfect centum in the other five subjects. 

She was confident of securing the perfect score — 125 — in Kannada, too. She applied for the photocopy of the answer script after speaking to her schoolteachers. 

She decided to apply for re-evaluation as there was no difference between the key answers and what she had written in the exam. 

The re-evaluation result proved her right. With the perfect score in Kannada, she has become one of the toppers in the SSLC exam in Karnataka. She scored a perfect centum in English, Hindi, Social Science, Science and Mathematics. 

But what makes her achievement extraordinary is the fact that she had studied in a Telugu-medium school till Class 7 in Andhra Pradesh. Her parents — Srinivasulu Reddy and Sujata — hail from Kolar. She had moved to Shivamogga to live with her grandfather, Kannappa, to study SSLC. 

She chose Kannada as the first language in high school. Shobha Ramakrishna, the secretary of the school management, said scoring 125 marks in Kannada was a great achievement for a student whose medium of instruction in primary school was Telugu. Subhashini initially struggled to write the Kannada alphabets, but picked up the language in just six months with the help of teachers and a little determination. 

Speaking to DH over phone, Sujata, her mother, said: “I am happy that my daughter has finally got justice. If she had obtained 625 marks last month, it would have been wonderful. Anyway, she has got the reward for hard work. She aspires to be a doctor.” 

Subhashini has enrolled at Narayana Guru College in Bengaluru for first-year PUC (Science).

Here is a really cool development!

According to this piece by Tanu Kulkarni, in The Hindu (full story with original link below) parents of school going kids in Bengaluru are finally feeling the urge to splurge on 'learning Kannada. If you have been in Bangalore you have certainly heard the now famous, 'kannad gottilla' catch all phrase, that simply is the ultimate excuse for most people who will claim their passage on the basis of not knowing the language. But not any more if the state government decides to have its say.

Again we dont know for sure if this is a pure election gimmick by the state government angling for votes or a genuine attempt to breathe some life into one of the most fascinating ancient languages and culture vehicles of India: Kannada.
