The Education Department has prepared guidelines for sanctioning unaided schools, said Education Minister P K Abdu Rabb. 

 Announcing the tenth equivalency examination results here on Monday, the minister said that the guidelines included recommendations on the salary for teachers. The guidelines would be presented before the Cabinet soon, he said.

The minister also said that the government would approach the Supreme Court against the High Court verdict in favour of unaided school managements.

 The minister said that the pass percentage of tenth equivalency examinations was 76.45 percent. The figure is 15.69 percent more than the last year’s pass percentage, he said.

 Alappuzha has registered the highest pass percentage with 88.79 percent and Thrissur came lowest with 55.72 percent.

 The results were prepared on the model of the SSLC grading system. Of the 14,470 candidates who appeared for the examinations, 11,072 won D Plus and above. None bagged A Plus in all subjects. Applications for revaluation can be submitted in the prescribed format with Rs 200, fees for each paper, to the headmaster of the respective examination centres before 4 p.m. on December 12.  The Save a Year examination for failed candidates will be held in January.
