Telangana, Andhra regions share equal honours in Inter results

Districts from Telangana and Andhra region shared equal honours finding place in the top 10 while only Chittoor from Rayalaseema region figured there in the first year Intermediate results declared here on Saturday.

While Krishna topped with 63 per cent passes, Ranga Reddy and Nizambad took second and third spots with 61 and 59 per cent passes respectively. Vishakapatnam and Chittoor shared the fourth place with 55 per cent passes each. Nellore and Guntur followed next with 53 per cent passes while Hyderabad was placed next with 48 per cent passes. The next four places went to West Godavari, Prakasam, East Godavari and Adilabad districts.

The results assume significance in the wake of separate Telangana and united State agitations that rocked the State before the Intermediate exams and a section of politicians from both sides demanding that marks sheets be valued in their respective regions. However, the results indicate that there was no bias as feared by agitating groups from both sides.

The BIE Secretary, G. Balaramaiah who along with the Principal Secretary, School Education, Sambasiva Rao released the results said they had not sought any information on the separate Telangana or United State slogans written by students in the answer scripts. At the same time directions were given to valuators that no script should be considered as a malpractice case even if slogans were written.

Mr. Balaramaiah said the pass percentage increased this year with 48.56 per cent passes registered compared to last year’s 46.64 per cent and girls’ performance at 53 per cent pass is better than 45 per cent of boys.

As has been practice for a few years only grades were given for the passed candidates while marks were made available to the failed candidates so that they could prepare for advanced supplementary examinations. Candidates who cleared all their papers can obtain their marks from their respective colleges after April 28.

This year, out of the 8,19,120 general candidates who took the examination, 3,97,805 candidates cleared the examination. Mr. Sambasiva Rao said

maximum number of candidates obtained “A” grade (greater than or equal to 75 per cent). He said 1,42,146 candidates secured “A” grade, while 1,32,882 candidates figured in “B” (greater than or equal to 60 per cent and less than 75 per cent). In “C” grade (greater than or equal to 50 per cent and less than 60 per cent) 84,027 candidates figured while 38,750 candidates got “D” (greater than or equal to 35 per cent and less than 50 per cent). Result of 38 candidates is withheld for want of information from the colleges.

The advanced supplementary examination will be held from June 2 and the last date for payment of fee is May 3. There is no provision for payment of examination fee with penalty. Candidates who have passed in all papers can appear for improvement, on payment of Rs. 100 per paper in addition to the normal examination fee.
