BOKAJAN: Two hill districts, Karbi Anglong and West Karbi Anglong which have been continuously showing a poor performance in educational scenario, especially in Gunotsav results, were able to put up a good performance in High School Leaving Certificate (HSLC) examination, the results of which were announced on Monday. The two districts showed a good performance in the results compared to the previous year. Karbi Anglong has improved from a pass percentage of 49.92% in 2022 to 75.47% this year, which is a remarkable increase. This improvement has also helped Karbi Anglong scale up from its previous position of 18th to 15th position in the list of the performing districts.
Similarly, West Karbi Anglong has also showed a considerable improvement in HSLC results from 42.71% in 2022 to 66.33% this year. This has helped West Karbi Anglong to rise up from its previous position of 30th to 26th position this year.
“The progress was possible due to the government’s efforts in developing the education scenario in the hill district,” said a senior official of school education department.
Notaby, SEBA had decided to withdraw the affiliation of 105 schools in the state as of March 31, 2023, due to their poor performance in HSLC 2022. Among these 105 schools, there were six schools from Karbi Anglong and West Karbi Anglong districts, which had failed to meet the board’s standards indicating that there is still a lot of work to be done to improve the quality of education in these districts.
Deopani High School in Karbi Anglong district which was also in the brink of closure due to very poor performance in 2022 has achieved a considerable good performance this year. The school is among the 105 schools whose affiliation with SEBA was considered to be called off due to abysmal performance in HSLC 2022.
Of the 21 students who appeared this year’s exam, 5 secured 1st division, 10 secured 2nd division and 4 students passed in 3rd division registering a overall pass percentage of 90% this year. The Diphu High School and Inglongkiri High School which were also among the three schools to register zero pass percentage in 2022, secured a 100 per cent pass rate this year.
