Speaking to Newskarnataka, Panduranga, DDPI, Mysuru district said, “We are shocked with the results. From day one, i.e., from last June itself, we had started conducting various programmes to improve our ranking further but the outcome has really surprised us. To increase the pass percentage, we had come up with various programmes which included the pass package that provides supporting learning materials for those who are weak in English language. Apart from this, to improve the language among students, we had also come out with ‘January First English Fest’ programme that motivates the students to converse in English and make the subject simpler. Parents should also start giving more importance to their children. In cities, the parents are giving more importance and keeping track of their children's progress but it's not the same in villages.”
“The students who couldn’t pass need not worry or get disappointed, instead, they should start concentrating and try to clear the supplementary exams which will probably be held from June 20. They can still make it to college or any course they want by passing in the supplementary exams”, added Panduranga.
Chamarajanagar district does well
The Chamarjanagar district has improved its ranking from 24th last year to 15th this year. Last year, the passing percentage was 74.46 while this year it secured 80.58 percent. Manjula, DDPI, Chamarajanagar said, “After we slipped to 24th place last year, we analysed the reason. Later, we chalked out various programmes including Learning Achievement Motivational Programme, building self-confidence among students to face the exam. Apart from this, to know the ground reality of students we created a programme to make the teachers visit the students. All these programmes went on well and that’s the reason we managed to do well this year."
Among the 10423 students who appeared for the exam, 8450 managed to Pass which included 4509 girls and 3941 boys.
