GUWAHATI: Alleging discrepancies in the recently declared Assam HSLC results a large number of students, around 70, of the Bamunigaon High School staged a protest against their school Headmistress in Chayagaon, Kamrup.
The protesting students, who staged a demonstration in front of the residence of the Headmistress alleged that their school authority has discriminated against some meritorious students in the evaluation process.
"We have seen that some students who could not perform well in the past examinations have received higher marks in the recently declared HSLC results. But deserving students could not score well. We demand an inquiry to the anomalies,'' a protesting student said.
He also said that the Headmistress whimsically awarded good marks to the underserving students. Later, the police controlled the situation.
However, the Headmistress claimed that the alleged anomalies happened in the Secondary Education Board Of Assam(SEBA) office.
