BHOPAL: “One result does not decide your destiny. There are many ways to overcome a bad situation. Students should take advantage of ‘Ruck Jana Nahi’ scheme launched by the government in which a student can take three chances to pass the board exam,” said CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan in a result declaration function here on Friday.
The function was organised to announce the results of the board exam in which students and their parents were called. At least 176 meritorious students and their parents called from all over the state attended the function.
A mobile app was also lunched on the occasion. By using the app, students can see their copies and apply for revaluation, re-totalling and others.
The CM congratulated the meritorious students on their achievement and declared that students who had passed the exam with 75 per cent aggregate and qualified in the national or state-level exams for higher studies at IITs, IIMs, MBA, MBBS, law and others, would get their fees paid by the government. Teachers who had worked hard to make their school proud, would be awarded and those who were careless, would be penalised. To purchase furniture in schools, Rs 30 crore had been allocated, the CM said.
Chairman of the board ACS, SR Mohanty informed that for the first time the result was announced at CM House and also results of both 10 and 12 were declared on the same day.
District collectors and superintendents of police coordinated to conduct free and fair exam in their districts, which resulted in no mass copying incident in the state.
CM’s school to be upgraded
Model School, Bhopal, in which CM Chouhan had studied, will be upgraded to the most modern school. It would be developed in a model school and in every district headquarter a model school would be established, informed school education minister Vijay Shah. Rs 3.50 crore would be spent on up grading the school. At least 100 computers, air conditioners would be procured and sports complex, e-library and many other facilities would be established.
Selfie mania rules
Selfie fever gripped the students as they rushed to take photographs with the CM. This took a lot of time to finish the group photograph session even as the education minister later instructed not to take any selfies. Students and their parents were in great zeal to attend the function with the CM and almost every student and parent was seen admiring the graceful function.
