Results to be declared by May 20, 230 candidates, 5 invigilators expelled across State


GUWAHATI: The Assam Higher Secondary Education Council (AHSEC) has initiated steps for digitalization of its processes, and it is expected to be completed within the next eight to nine months. Besides, the Council is commencing the online process for the Higher Secondary first-year students from the next academic session. Online registration of the HS final-year examinees is already on, informed the chairman of AHSEC, Dr Dayananda Borgohain while addressing the media here on Saturday.

Borgohain pointed out that “the digitalization move as well as the online registration of even the first- year HS students would go a long way in stopping the practice of some students registering from several centres to ultimately choose a centre beneficial to them.”

The Council will also take a decision against the mushrooming of private institutions particularly those who register their students with a government institution at the last moment, he said.

The Council is also planning to announce the results of the HS exam within May 20. Last year the results were declared on May 30, he added.

The chairman also said that “the examination cell of the Council would be established on the two top floors of the proposed four-storied building of the Council. The top floors are under construction now.”

Claiming that “there has been no controversy regarding this year’s HS examinations which have already concluded”, Borgohain, however, added, “230 candidates and five invigilators were expelled across the State for adopting unfair practices during the examination time.”

The best zone and centre would be awarded Rs 50,000 each, Borgohain added.

Altogether 2,42,843 candidates appeared for the examination across 772 examination centres in 20 venues this year. Of the examinees, 1,86,187 were in the Arts stream, 37,455 appeared in the Science stream, 18,291 in the Commerce stream, and 910 in the vocational stream. Besides the 949 supervising officers involved in the examination process, there were 47 observers.
