The results of this year’s higher secondary examinations are likely to be published by May 15 while those of the SSLC examinations are likely to be out any time after April 20.
While the valuation of the answer scripts of the SSLC examinations got over on Saturday, a majority of the answer sheets of the Class 12 examinations have already been evaluated.
The evaluation of the answer sheets of the Plus Two examinations are going on at 67 camps across the State with close to 15,000 teachers being drafted for the exercise. The camps, which began on March 30, were temporarily stopped on April 8 and would resume on April 21. The valuation of the answer sheets, including the double valuation of the Maths, Physics and Chemistry papers, is expected to be over by April 30.
The double valuation of the answer sheets of these three subjects has already been completed at the Thiruvalla centre; there are 14 such double-valuation centres. The marks of these three subjects will be uploaded directly to the servers in the higher secondary directorate. This is to facilitate the factoring-in of these marks for the preparation of the Kerala engineering entrance rank list.
K. Mohanakumar, joint director of higher secondary examinations, said 65 per cent of the evaluation work had already been completed. “In the case of some subjects, including home science, sociology, Gandhian Studies and statistics, the valuation is already over,” he said.
In a bid to check absenteeism at the valuation camps, the higher secondary director had, early this month, issued a circular warning of disciplinary action against erring teachers. Following this, there was a 5 per cent improvement in attendance at the camps. Even so, the higher secondary directorate is understood to be preparing to issue show-cause notices to 100 teachers who have not reported at camps.SSLC valuation
Close to 13,000 teachers were drafted for the SSLC centralised valuation camps, which were organised at 54 locations. The conduct of the parliamentary polls meant that more teachers had to be drafted when compared to previous years.
