On the eve of the Higher Secondary Examination, many students who are supposed to appear for it are yet to receive their admit cards. In an unprecedented move, West Bengal Council for Higher Secondary Education on Tuesday allowed the students to fill up their registration forms and started to issue the admit cards from 6 pm in the evening. The council said that the process will continued till midnight.
According to the school authorities, they have received admit cards without the pictures of the candidates. The pictures on the admit cards are now being used as a preventive measure to stop the practice of dummy candidates. The council authorities issued a notice stating that students have to paste their photographs and get it attested from their respective head masters of the schools and produce it at the examination centre on Wednesday, or else the student would not be allowed to sit for the examination.
Meanwhile, long queues were noticed since the morning at the head office of the Council where students, teachers and guardians were seen filling up the registration forms. Council sources said the last date of filling up of the forms was on January 9. The Council, however, put the blame on the school authorities for the delay. They said most of the schools filled their forms till March 9 which resulted in such a delay.
Council president Muktinath Chatterjee said an enquiry committee will be formed. After we received complaints, we intimated schools that students should not suffer because of administrative hassles.
