Sangareddy: Medak District Collector Rahul Bojja has appealed to the headmasters to play a key role in ensuring that the students come out with flying colours in the new pattern of the Class X public examinations.
Addressing the headmasters of government, Zila Parishad, KGBVB, Gurukula and aided schools at the Collectorate here on Tuesday, Rahul Bojja said it was the responsibility of the headmasters to ensure that the students did not panic because of the new syllabus. Special interest needed to be taken while teaching Class X students, he said.
Students should be made to study topics one or two times, which would enable them to answer any question with ease, he said and asked the headmasters to arrange special classes for slow learners. Students should be made into groups to answer questions, which would result in various answers for a given question, he said.
He said rote learning was no longer useful and students should be taught thoroughly. Teachers should ask short questions in the class and students should be made to answer them, he said. Parents should be made to understand the importance of their involvement in preparing the children for exams, he said.
He spoke to the headmasters about the measures they were taking to ensure good percentage for the students.
District Education Officer Rajeswara Rao said 45,977 students in 251 centres across the district were appearing for Class X exams this year and the headmasters have already been prepared for the new exam pattern. He said the success rate in the half-yearly exams was 80 per cent and 100 per cent was the target for the finals.
