Hyderabad: The fate of at least 60 students at St Adam’s High School in Musheerabad is at stake, as the secondary education board withheld their SSC results because the school administration chose not to pay the exam fee despite collecting from students, DEO Hyderabad Assistant, Samuel Raj, confirmed.
The school did not pay the board while collecting fees from the students, after which the education department refused to disclose the results of these students. The DEO MP said the results would not be released until the school paid the amount. “We got the exam fees from all the other schools in the district except St Adam’s. Ask them where they used all that money?” he said.
Although this correspondent tried to reach the school authorities, they were not available for comment. Sources said the school owners had fled the scene since the results were announced.
In the SSC results, which were announced on Friday, more than 2.10,000 of the 5.21,000 students registered to take the exam this year achieved 10 GPAs in 535 schools. Of these, 5,16578 were regular students, while 4,495 were previously unsuccessful students. Details of grades awarded to students based on internal assessment are available on the official website bse.telangana.gov.in and results.bsetelanagana.org.
The government also said that in the event of errors in the passing marks of students, the SSC board could be informed by the school principals concerned, and added that the matter would be corrected immediately.
For the second year in a row, the Telangana government has canceled SSC exams due to the spread of Covid-19 in the state now. There has been no update on the conduct of Class 12 or Intermediate exams which have been postponed until further notice.
