Hyderabad: There are many mistakes in the marks list of Intermediate results released on Thursday, students have alleged.
Some students who said they wrote the exam were marked ‘Absent and Fail’. Hundreds of panic-stricken students are contacting the Intermediate Board to clarify their status and the board has started rectifying the same in the online platform.
B. Varshith Reddy, a class topper with 460 marks in the first year, was marked ‘Absent and Fail’ (AF) in English, and ‘Absent and Pass’ (AP) in Sanskrit in his second year results, despite sitting for the exams in both subjects.
Mr Mahender Reddy, his father, said, “How can these mistakes occur? On the one side, sensitive students are committing suicide as soon as they see ‘fail’ in the marks list and on the other hand the board is saying that it's a mistake. How is it justified if anything happens because of their ‘mistake’?”
Principals have also complained regarding the results. Vijay Bhaskar, principal of Narayana College, Kukatpally campus, said: “Around 110 students in our campus have mistakes in their mark lists. We are receiving calls from confused parents asking why did that happen.”
He said many students had got AF when they had dropped the students to the exam hall. “All these students are toppers who secured 90 per cent in their earlier years. The board should be careful as students are sensitive at this age.” The board said it had received four complaints in which students were marked ‘absent’ and ‘fail’ despite being present.
