While Bidar district continued in its last position in SSLC results, Yadgir district has shown marked improvement in Hyderabad Karnataka region.

Bidar district, which was in the bottom in PUC results announced a few days back, has continued the trend even in SSLC.

Out of the 22,786 students who appeared for SSLC, only 17,169 passed (75.35 pc) leaving the district in 34th position in the state.

In 2013, the pass percentage was 67.95.

Official sources said Bidar has stayed in the bottom position in SSLC for the past five years.

The results in Raichur and Koppal districts were also disappointing.

Raichur, which finished in 14th position (pass percentage of 82.42) in 2013, slipped to 23rd position this year.

Sources said 16,351 of the total 19,920 students who appeared passed this year (82.08).

While the state ranking of Koppal in 2013 was 16 (81.93 pc), it is down to 22 in 2014. While 15,679 students appeared this year, 12,930 passed. 

Yadgir district which improved its position in PU results climbing up from 31 to 21 in state ranking, has shown an impressive progress in SSLC as it went up to 11th rank from 28th in 2013.

  Gulbarga district has shown a slight improvement from last year with its ranking going up to 30 from 33 last year. Of the 33,745 students who appeared, 26,684 (79.08 pc) have passed.

Zero per cent results were recorded in five schools in Gulbarga district. However, none of the schools in other districts of Hyderabad Karnataka region recorded zero per cent in SSLC.

Bidar: Expert Team to Study Reasons

The Education Department will introspect on why Bidar district has been in the last position in SSLC exams results for more than five years, said Radhakrishna Madankar, Additional Commissioner in North East Commissionerate of Public Instruction.  He told Express here on Monday that it is a mater of serious concern. An expert team will be constituted within a few days to study the reasons for the poor performance. The team will discuss with the Bidar Deputy Commissioner, ZP CEO, academicians, teachers and students, he added.

The team will visit schools which fared badly. It will submit a report at the earliest so that the department could implement the report, Madankar said. “Fear psychosis on facing exams may be the reason for the poor results. We will try to remove this fear by providing special training to teachers,” he said.
