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.
