Karnataka SSLC Exam: School Management Mess-up, 75 Students Miss Exam

75 students from Swami Vivekananda School (SVS) in Sarayipalya, Nagawara could not take up their State Secondary Education Examination Board (SSLC) Exam, yesterday, March 30, as the school's management failed to provide hall tickets to the students.

Students upset over the school's management raised slogans against the school management, demanding hall tickets. To their dismay, students were not provided hall tickets and were not allowed to take up the board exam.


On the other hand, Police officials informed the students that the school secretary was absconding.

The students came to school as early as 7 am but were told that they cannot appear in exam without hall tickets. On hearing this, the students broke down and had no clue about their hall tickets.

The department of public instruction was shocked when they learnt that the school management was on the run. One of students parent informed media that "the school managment had earlier told them to pay the fees before the SSLC Exam was announced."

The management had said that it won't give hall tickets to students who have not paid the fees. However, the students paid the fees on Tuesday, March 29 and were told that they would receive their hall tickets on Wednesday, March 30.

"We didn't have a clue that the management didn't have hall tickets at all. Management played with the future of students and now our children will lose one year because of school authority blunders," Parents of students concluded.

The Nagawara school is also the exam centre for 10 students from St George Public School, Thanisandra Road. Another parent, whose son studies at St George, said, "My son has to suffer because of the school authority's goof-up. Our school informed us that the Nagawara school will be my son's exam centre, but it didn't issue hall tickets to students."

"SVS had been making students write the examinations in an authorized school until now. To get recognition from the education department and register their school as an exam centre, school authorities approached a middleman to negotiate with the government this year."

" Moreover, they paid him to get permission. The middleman is also absconding according to police information," said Shashi Kumar, general secretary of the Associated Managements of Government-Recognized English-Medium Schools in Karnataka.

"We have to suffer because of the school authority. Hence we request the higher authorities to allow us to sit for the remaining papers and will request them to conduct the first paper again which we missed as we will lose one year," one of the student said.
