There was a mixed response from students and their guardians to the result of SEBA conducted HSLC examinations which was declared on Friday. Unhappy at the performance of their wards, most parents are now planning to shift their wards to CBSE schools as they feel it’s a better choice to compete at the national level.
This year, there were a lot of goof-ups in the examination right from wrong set of question papers to cows swallowing the answer sheets, which made the guardians lose faith in the board’s credibility. This is the reason for some well-known schools to seek CBSE affiliation.
This year, the pass percentage has dipped from last year’s 70.38 per cent to 69.63, leaving many students confused and disillusioned. Aman Batra, a student who could manage only 57 per cent said, “I cannot believe that this is my result as I was expecting letter marks in general maths and English. I think Seba has played with the students’ career as everyone knows about the goo. I am not sure whether my copies were checked properly. So, I am thinking to go for re-check. But I don’t think it is going to help much.”
