In the HSSLC exam, 15 institutions in the Arts stream, 5 institutions in the Science stream, and 4 institutions in the Commerce stream attained a 100% pass rate.

Interestingly, two students from Government Higher Secondary Schools have emerged as top performers in the Arts stream for the HSSLC Examination 2023. Specifically, a student from Govt. Hr. Sec. School, Tuli secured the 9th rank, while another student from Govt. Hr. Sec. School, Jalukie secured the 10th rank.

The NBSE also shared information about HSLC candidates with special needs who received concessions during the exams. A total of 26 candidates benefited from accommodations such as extra time, scribes, exemption from fees, and the use of laptops. Out of these, 17 candidates passed successfully, while 9 received “Needs Improvement” results.

Similarly, for HSSLC students under the Children with Special Needs (CWSN) category, a total of 13 candidates availed concessions and appeared for the examination. Out of these 13 candidates, 11 were successful and 2 did not qualify.

In a significant development, the NBSE announced the introduction of compartmental exams for HSSLC candidates starting this year. Candidates who failed in three or fewer subjects can sit for the compartmental exams, with two chances given to clear the papers. This initiative aims to reduce dropout rates and aligns with the vision of National Education Policy 2020.

Furthermore, improvement exams will be conducted for HSLC and HSSLC candidates who wish to enhance their scores in three or fewer subjects. These exams will be held alongside the compartmental exams from 2023, providing students with the opportunity to pursue their desired courses.

To address the needs of candidates who qualify for the HSLC exam but receive a “Needs Improvement” result in one subject, the NBSE will allow them to retake that subject in the immediate examination of 2023. This will enable them to fulfil specific recruitment criteria, apply for courses, and secure admission that requires passing all the subjects they have opted for.

Repeater candidates must appear for the HSLC/HSSLC exams based on the existing syllabus and course guidelines. They are requested to submit their application forms and examination fees online from August 1 to August 12, 2023, for the HSLC Examination 2024 and from August 8 to August 12, 2023, for the HSSLC Examination.
