Jharkhand Academic Council is going to take extra care of its board examinees.
According to a directive issued by the Kolhan regional deputy director of education Nagendra Thakur, the council has directed all the schools to continue holding classes for the academically weak students after the conclusion of the pre-board examinations that starts next week.
The teachers have been directed to pay special attention to subjects like maths and science and make use of all the free time they can afford during this month and next to work on the weaker students before the matriculation exams start on February 22. Students usually stop coming to schools after their pre-board tests and prefer to sit home and study for their boards usually.
“Those who are academically weak will have to come attend classes in subjects like maths and science even after their pre-board examinations. The period of time before the pre-board tests and the main examination has to be used for as much revision as possible,” Thakur said.
He added that the results were not satisfactory last year and hence they will do their best to bring the students up to the mark this year.
The East Singhbhum district education department has sorted all the students scheduled to take the board exams this year in A, B and C categories with A representing the brightest lot. The focus will be on students in the last category Thakur claimed.
A set of model test papers in each subject has also been printed and sent to all the schools.
