Poor performance by the students in Cachar

SILCHAR, May 17: As compared to the other parts of the State, the students of Cachar district have failed to show their excellence in the HSLC examinations, the results of which were declared today. There are so many reputed private schools in this town, which always claim to produce good students, but they have failed to make any mark this year. Like last year, the students from the district did not figure on the toppers' list. However, the overall performances of educational institutions in Cachar district as a whole are better in comparison to the last year's results. This time the pass percentage is 58.24. Last year it was 54.72. In Cachar, a total of 18,873 students appeared in the HSLC examinations in 33 centres, out of which only 10,993 have passed out. Only 911 are in first division, 2,061 are in second division and remaining 8,021 in third division. The students of 51 schools in the district have appeared in the examinations. Ujjayita Choudhury, a student of Holy Cross School, has got the state highest marks in Bengali. Holycross School, the oldest convent school of this city, and South Point School have recorded cent percent success. The percentage of pass in Silchar Collegiate School is 95, Government Girls' Higher Secondary School 80, Government Boys' Higher Secondary School 77.41, Narsing Higher Secondary School 67, Adharchand Higher Secondary School 96, Nehru High School, Pailapool 96, DNNK 89, Chotelal Seth High School 47.41, Cachar High School 89.9, Netaji Bidya Bhavan 89.45, Public Higher Secondary School 97.7. The examinees of Muktashree High School, an English medium, also have come out with flying colours, recording 100 per cent pass in the examinations. Like in previous years, though private institutes in Silchar maintained supremacy on the result sheet but the government schools also recorded a slight improvement in comparison to previous years. On being asked about the performance by the students in this year's HSLC examination, Nibaran Chandra Das, school inspector of Cachar district, said, "The government schools have this time recorded an improvement compared to yesteryears and the teachers and students as well should be appreciated for that." He however expressed his disappointment over the poor pass percentage in the district compared to the state's 70.71 per cent. He pointed out that teachers, guardians and students jointly have to work hard in order to make presence in the results of such examinations. Congratulating the students, he said that all the students who passed in the examinations are genuine as the HSLC examinations in Cachar were conducted under strict vigilance and there was no chance of cheating and unfair means. It can be recollected here that altogether 15 students from Barak Valley starred on the merit list in 2010. In 2011, the results were not satisfactory but Saugata Dey of Holy Cross School was the lone name from Barak Valley on the merit list, who secured 14th position. But it is consistently for the second time that Cachar students could make their place on the merit list. (sentinelassam)
