To improve the pass rate in the High school certificate examination, the district administration has launched the ‘Mission Zero F’ initiative in Sambalpur, where students who score grade F will be improved. Under this initiative, students scoring under or less than 40 per cent in their annual examination in one or more subjects in class 9 will also be paid special attention.
The students who are weak in their studies will be given special treatment and will be monitored for the coming board examination so that they will be able to improve their scores. After reviewing the papers of the last ten years, teachers will be assigned to various groups, and modules will be done accordingly. All the teachers will have to participate in this procedure, and they will be given to visiting areas across the district.
According to the district education official, around 11000 students will appear for the board examination in 2021. Out of them, 8000 students have been identified as they have scored less than 40 percent. As of now, the initiative will be conducted from 1st December after the parent-teacher meeting.
The HSC result of last year was appropriately analyzed, and it was found that the number of students who have failed was relatively high. And the closure of the schools due to the Coronavirus pandemic has also affected the education system a lot and the students who will appear for the next year’s board exams.
Subham Sexena, the collector, stated that now that we all have time to look towards this matter, they have planned out about the students who are not doing well and appropriately mentored so that they outshine in the coming board exams.
