- More than six lakhs did not appear for different subjects - Over 300 students debarred The Intermediate examinations have come to a close on Tuesday, barring exams of a few subjects with negligible number of students like drawing, logic, Home Science and Bridge Course Mathmatics Papers, will take place in the next couple of days. With the conclusion of main line exams like Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, Botany and Zoology along with language papers, a key phase is over and students will now have to engage themselves for the all important national level entrance examinations like IIT JEE Mains, JEE Advanced, NEET and EAMCET. Unlike last year when the Physics-II exam created a furore, this year the exams were by and large peaceful and no complaints have been heard from any quarter. Moreover, as this year is considered very crucial for the aspirants, for, all the national level entrances are conducted with changed formats, the paper-setters might have preferred to go rather soft and not giving students sleepless nights, according to lecturers. Even then, according to official release, more than six lakh students did not take the exams in different subjects- in both Junior and Senior Inter levels. One of the reasons that is attributed in case of junior inter students was the air of uncertainty over JEE Mains and NEET streams where weightage marks play a key role in enhancing the percentage. Even on the last day of the exam, nearly 46,000 students were absent. Nearly 20 lakh students took the exams and a total of 2633 exam centres were set up out of which 864 were govt colleges, 190 aided and 1579 private institutions. Nearly a lakh invigilators supervised the exams. A total of 94 flying squads along with 165 sitting squads went to all the centres on all days suddenly to curb irregularities. More than300 students were debarred for resorting to mass copying and the worst case was registered in Nalgonda district where a college Principal and staff were caught red handed for aiding the students. The results are likely to be declared in the last week of April- most probably by April 25, according to Ramshankar Naik, Secretary of Intermediate Board.
