Guwahati : High School Leaving Certificate (HSLC) Examination has hit a new low after complaints of teacher crunch is doing the rounds for evaluation of exam papers.
According to sources, the shortage of evaluators has hindered the process of evaluation.
As per reports, as the teachers of government run schools are engaged in NRC work, the Board is facing a harrowing time in completing the evaluation of about 22 lakh answer scripts by March 15th, 2019.
As per reports, a total of 18,000 teachers are required for the complete evaluation of over 3,00,000 students and the Board is in a haste to complete it before the Election Commission (EC) appoints government officials for election duty for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. But, as a significant number of teachers are engaged in different districts of Assam for NRC updation work, early completion might be a hurdle.
It may be mentioned, the HSLC and High Madrassa examination under the SEBA Board started from February 14th, 2019 in all the examination centres across Assam. As many as 3,52,143 candidates are appearing for the HSLC examination and the High Madrassa examinations this year.
