Patna, Feb. 29: A number of city schools have chosen to take the online route to announce results of students’ admission to the preparatory classes.
This is the first time that the schools have taken such a step. Earlier, all schools used to put up the results of the admission on the notice board.
Carmel High School is one of the schools that would announce the results of the admission on its website, www.carmelpatna.com.
“The results will be announced on March 11 and it will not be put up on the notice board. Guardians seeking to admit their wards to our school can check out the results on our website,” a school employee said.
The principal of St Xavier’s High School, George Nedumattam, said even they would announce the results on the institute’s official website. “We will upload results on our website this year. This is for the convenience of the people. They can check the results from wherever they are,” Nedumattam said, adding that the school would start announcing the results for admission to Class I from March 11.
Sources in some of the schools, which have chosen to go online, said they took the decision to upload the results on the Internet to avoid any untoward incident.
However, most of the schools have stuck to the traditional way to announce the results — put them up on notice boards. Don Bosco Academy is among them and has decided to announce the results for admission to LKG on March 11. “The results will be put up on the notice board. We did not take the online route because many guardians may not have access to the Internet,” principal Mary Alphonsa told The Telegraph.
Mary Ward Kindergarten would announce the results for admission to LKG on March 9, while St Dominic Savio’s High School would declare their results on March 2. Both the schools would put up their results on the notice boards.
The parents had a mixed reaction on the decision of some of the schools to announce their results online.
Siddhartha, the guardian of a child seeking admission in KG I in Carmel High School, told The Telegraph: “It is good that we won’t have to stand in queues to see the results. By going online, they have made it easier. Waiting in queues become difficult when many people create ruckus. Now, we won’t have to face such a situation.”
Another guardian Rishabh Raj differed from Siddhartha. “The schools are doing this to ensure that no parent can raise a voice against any selection which is done in a random way,” he said.
