The SSLC examinations are nearing and students are working their fingers to the bones to make sure they do their best. In just four months the examination which is crucial to Class 12 students in the state of Karnataka will be conducted.
The SSLC board has developed a quick and simple process which will bring down the schools' responsibility by a majority. This new system which will be applied soon will be done by importing the information from Students Achievement Tracking Systems (SATS)
The Director of Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board (KSEEB), Sumanagala V, stated that the school will only have to use two minutes to fill in the data for each student.
"There were two rounds of manual work which we undertook. The schools used to fill the data of students in a given format and send it to us. We used to generate the OMR of the student and send the sheet back to the school for verification," she further said talking about the system adopted before.
The SATS will have the entire information related to each student across Karnataka. The data can be attained by anyone in the department and this system is claimed to be another great feat for the Department of Public Instruction.
The Director said, "The principal or the headmasters will be given a password to log into the system and then they can add or modify data. As of now, we need the school's help in attaching photos and signatures of students apart from other minor details. Also, if a student falls under the disability category, the school has to make the necessary updations. This is just a small work which schools need to do now. The rest we are taking care of." Training programme for the process is under conduction by on nodal officers by KSEEB.
Post the verification of OMR, the school will be sending it back for correction of any errors. After the rectification process, the hall tickets will be released The procedure will enable the distribution of hall tickets without any delays or mistakes.
