Dimapur school fails to issue HSLC admit cards
DIMAPUR, FEBRUARY 10
AS a total of 21,678 students across the State sit for the High School Leaving Certificate (HSLC) examinations beginning February 11, fate of 13 students belonging to Blooming Bud Montessori School Dimapur hinges on uncertainty as the school authority has failed to give them admit cards.
The unprecedented situation came to light after Dimapur Naga Students’ Union (DNSU) issued a press communiqué alleging that Blooming Bud Montessori School had failed to deliver admit cards to its HSLC students to appear in the examination beginning tomorrow. DNSU has criticized the school authority for putting the students under strenuous situation thereby making them undergo mental trauma and their career at stake.
The union, while appealing to the competent authority to find certain modalities so that the students are not victimized, has urged that they be allowed to appear their HSLC examination without any hindrance.
The DNSU has also reminded the school authority concerned to bear all moral responsibility and consequence for any untoward situation that may arise out of the current development.
Though the school authority could not be reached for comment, concerned parents/guardians informed Eastern Mirror that all HSLC candidates were asked to report to the school on February 11 at 7.30 a.m. It was informed that the school authority had assured to make necessary arrangements with the Nagaland Board of School Education (NBSE) to enable the students write the HSLC examinations.
However, some circumspect parents/guardians have questioned on the rationality and validity to write the examination without the admit cards issued by the NBSE.
Following the development, Naga Students’ Federation (NSF), Dimapur Naga Students’ Union (DNSU), Sumi Students’ Union Dimapur, and police personnel have visited the school today.
