The Telangana State Board of Intermediate Education (TSBIE), released the results of the first year examinations on Wednesday, December 16. The TSBIE, Hyderabad conducted the Intermediate Public Examinations for Regular First Year Students (academic year 2020-21) in October 2021 from 25-10-2021 to 03-11-2021 in 1768 examination centers across the state. This was followed by the valuation work being conducted at 14 peaceful Spot Valuation Camps in the state. TSBIE reported that out of 4.59 lakh candidates who appeared for the exam only 49% of them have managed to pass the exam. Most of the students were unhappy with the valuation and raised the concerns regarding the same.
As less than 50% have passed in TS Inter 1st year exams, students came forward and raised their voice about the possible reasons for such low results.Students reported that online classes and poor internet connection were one of the big reasons for not being able to perform well. They have also expressed that there were times they were not even able to access classes and hence, all this has impacted their learning.
The board supported students’ grievances by stating that “There is a provision for recounting and online supply of scanned copy cum reverification of the valued answer scripts. The candidates who wish to avail these facilities have to pay online, an amount of Rs100 per paper for recounting and Rs 600 per paper for scanned copy-cum-reverification of answer book, through the TSBIE website,”.
According to reports more than 39,039 students applied for the revaluation of answer paper of the inter first year examinations earlier. Apart from this 4,200 students applied for recounting and have raised complaints regarding the poor valuation process. Low pass percentage and poor results is known to be the reason for an increase in the number of students applying for revaluation this year.
As informed earlier the revaluation and recounting of TSBIE first year exam answer sheets will begin from today, December 24, 2021. The sheets will be scanned again and will be sent to the evaluation centers later. Due to an increase in the number of students participating in the revaluation process, the board has set up 13 revaluation centers across the state. Reports on TSBIE TS Inter results further suggest that the board might be considering holding re-examination for this batch of 1st Year students. If this were to be true, exams for these students would happen alongside Inter 2nd year exams, causing more worry to students as select students would have to write both papers. However, an official update is awaited.
