Hyderabad: After last year’s goof-up in the intermediate board examination results, the Telangana State Board of Intermediate Education (TSBIE) has roped in state-run Centre for Good Governance (CGG) to ensure smooth processing of results.
Putting the future of several students at stake, the technical glitches in intermediate board exams created by Globarena technologies last year had raised eyebrows. Speaking to media, Syed Omer Jaleel, Secretary of TSBIE, said that this year, Centre for Good Governance (CGG) would take the lead in processing the results. He also added that the software would be test audited, which was not done last year.
Speaking about the glitches in last year’s results, the secretary was of the opinion that “It is the responsibility of the service provider to take care of processing of results. The technical problems happened because the software was not calibrated properly. Now, we have assigned the job to the best possible agency.” As of now, CGG is expected to take care of the results section.
As 9.6 lakh students are to attend the intermediate board exams in March 2020, the education board is trying to make up for the past technical mistakes in processing the results, handled by Globarena technologies private limited. Last year, students found that some had obtained bad marks despite performing well, while others were marked absent in spite of attending the exam. Allegedly disappointed with the marks that they received, around 15 students had committed suicide.
In 2020, 4,83,003 students will sit for the second-year exams, while 4,79,676 students will sit for the first-year Intermediate Public examination (IPE).
Addressing the pressure that students undergo during examination time, the education officials replied that “All the measures have been taken to give transparent results to the students. We ask them not to panic.”
The TSBIE has also given students the opportunity to verify their details on the website. For verification of details, students can go to tsbie.cgg.gov.in. In case of correction in details, students have been instructed to contact the Principal of concerned Junior College so that they may submit the same to the concerned District Intermediate Education Officer / Nodal Officer on or before December 15.
