GUWAHATI: It seems the results of Gunotsav have been poorly reflected in the results of the High School Leaving Certificate (HSLC) examination, which was announced by the Board of Secondary Education (SEBA) on May 22.

Chirang district, which showed a very poor performance in the Gunotsav evaluation, recorded the highest pass percentage in the HSLC examination. The pass percentage of HSLC this time was 72.69 percent.

Chirang topped the districts with 88.64 percent, followed by Sivasagar with 88.40 percent, Dima Hasao with 88.12 percent and Nalbari with 88.02 percent in the results.

Gunotsav, an initiative by the Assam government to augment quality education in the state, was conducted in three phases from January 18 to February 18 this year.

Some other top districts include Bongaigaon (84.69 percent), Baksa (84.19 percent), Darrang (79.08 percent), Golaghat (78.20 percent) and Charaideo (78.35 percent).

In 2022, Chirang recorded the lowest pass percentage with 34.27%.

Of the 5502 students who appeared in the HSLC exam from Chirang, 1415 got first division, 2669 second division and 795 secured third division. A total of 4,879 students were declared to pass the exam.

The performance of schools in Chirang, Karbi Anglong and West Karbi Anglong districts was worst in the Gunotsav 2023.

Of 288 schools in Chirang district, 79 schools secured A+ grade, 329 schools A grade, 254 B grade, 92 C grade and 34 schools secured D grade.

West Karbi Anglong recorded 66.23 percent, while Karbi Anglong recorded 75.47 percent in the HSLC result.

Of 635 schools in West Karbi Anglong, 36 secured A+ grade, 219 A grade, 213 B grade, 94 C grade and 73 schools secured D grade in Gunotsav.

Of 1,165 schools in Karbi Anglong district, 135 secured A+ grade, 507 A grade, 355 B grade, 102 C grade and 66 schools C secured D grade.

“The performance of Karbi Anglong, West Karbi Anglong and Chirang district has been poor since the day of the first Gunotsav in 2017. We are trying to initiate a corrective measure at the micro level in the three districts to improve their performance,” Sarma said while releasing the Gunotsav results on April 25.

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 performing districts.

Similarly, West Karbi Anglong has also shown 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.

Notably, SEBA had decided to withdraw the affiliation of 105 private/venture 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 on the brink of closure due to very poor performance in 2022, has achieved a considerably good performance this year. The school is among the 105 schools whose affiliation with SEBA was considered to be called due to abysmal performance in HSLC 2022.

Of 21 students who appeared in this year’s exam, 5 secured 1st division, 10 secured 2nd division and 4 students passed in 3rd division, registering an overall pass percentage of 90% this year.

Diphu High School and Inglongkiri High School, which were among the three schools to register zero pass percentage in 2022, secured a 100 percent pass rate this year.

In West Karbi Anglong district, Jaipong Adarsha High School, which registered a zero pass percentage in 2022, scaled up to achieve a remarkable 99% this year. 23 out of 24 appearing students cleared the exam.

Ok-Kereng High School also managed to secure 72% this year as against zero percent in 2022. 18 out of 25 appearing students cleared the exam this year.

Men Maji High School, which was also in the list of non-performing schools, registered a 34% pass percentage with 11 students out of 32 successfully clearing g the exam this year.

Sivasagar has recorded 88.40 per cent compared to 81.17 per cent in 2022. Dima Hasao recorded 88.12 per cent compared to 81.31 percent in 2022.
