Close to 96 per cent students who appeared for the SSLC examinations for the year have been declared eligible for higher studies. The results were announced by education minister C Raveendranath here on Friday.

A total of 4,55,453 students had appeared for the school final examination held in March this year. Of this, 4,37,156 candidates become eligible for higher studies. In other words, 95.98 per cent candidates successfully cleared the examination by securing grade D or above for all subjects. Ever since the introduction of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE), the number of students who successfully complete the 10th standard has gone up. Last year, the percentage of candidates eligible for higher studies was 96.59.

Announcing the results in the presence of general education secretary Usha Titus and Director of Public Instructions (DPI) K V Mohankumar, education minister told media that the government was committed to improve the quality of school education which currently faces charges of quality erosion.

“As part of introducing a host of measures aimed at quality improvement, the education department; on a pilot basis, would try the online distribution of question papers for 10th and higher secondary classes. The try out would be made either for the Onam or X’Mas examinations in the coming academic year”, the minister said. According to him, the government would introduce measures to turn the CCE scientific.

According to the minister, the government has decided to prepare question banks in all school subjects and all the examinations from class one to 12 would be conducted using the question papers prepared by the education department. The practice of engaging private agencies for preparation of question banks and question papers have backfired this year when questions prepared by a private agency got repeated in the SSLC mathematics examination. Following the leak of questions, re-examination had to be conducted for mathematics.
