BY Wednesday afternoon, the Nagaland Board of School Education (NBSE) would have made public the result of the 2014 High School Leaving Certificate (HSLC) and Higher Secondary School Leaving Certificate (HSSLC) exams respectively, deciding the fate of 35,248 students in Nagaland. As per information available, 21,678 students had sat for the HSLC exam while another 13, 570 appeared for the HSSLC exam.
Also, in keeping with their recent change in mode of information circulation, the NBSE would not be advertising the results in local newspapers this year too.
Like the previous two years, the NBSE will stick to their preferred mode of digital media and release the result on their website as well as through SMS service. Nevertheless, Eastern Mirror is pleased to recap some pertinent aspects of last year’s results and their relevance to this year’s results.
Perhaps taking precedence is the fact that last year, 25 government schools failed to have even a single student clear the HSLC exams. It will be most interesting to see whether such embarrassment is repeated this year too.
Regardless of the best of intentions and wishes behind the call and hope for better results, especially among government run schools, their track record leave little room for optimism. This despite the fact that three private schools had also registered zero pass percentage in HSLC exam last year.
While the overall pass percentage for HSLC was 63.51% last year, private schools had recorded 88.36% even as the government schools managed a miserable 37.25%.
Despite claims to the contrary from the department concerned, the performance and the quality of education in our government schools remain highly deficient.
In HSSLC, last year’s pass percentage record read as 65.14% for Arts stream, 81.75% and 68.72% Commerce and Science stream respectively. Two schools, one government-run and another private-run, registered zero pass percentage in HSSLC exams.
In Nagaland, private schools have almost every year subjected the government-run schools to a beating when the results are declared. The trend is expected to be no different this time too.
