Odisha HSC supplementary exams from June 17

Cuttack, June 17: A little over 22,000 students, both in Regular and Ex-regular streams, will write the Matriculation (Supplementary) Examination-2014, beginning from June 17.

The examinations will continue till June 23, sources said. Students, who either could not appear in the annual examinations held in March this year or failed in it, are given a supplementary chance to clear the examination without losing an academic year.

Even as the state government has announced extension of ongoing summer vacation for school and college students to June 23, the scheduled supplementary examination for high school students will not be affected, said a Board of Secondary Education (BSE) sources here.

The examinations would be held in at least 143 centres across the state, informed the BSE president D P Nanda adding the evaluation of answer sheets will begin from June 26.

"Since only 22,000 students are appearing the examinations this time, we have plans to finish the evaluation within three days," Nanda said without suggesting any date for publication of the results.

But sources in the Board said efforts are being made to publish the results by mid-July, so that successful students get an opportunity for higher education without breaking the continuity of their academic career.

Last year nearly 60,000 students appeared in the supplementary examinations in both the streams and over 55 per cent appeared successfully.
