Hyderabad: Medak, the native district of Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao, is lagging behind other districts of the state when it comes to Intermediate education.

The district stood last in second-year (general category) Intermediate results with a pass percentage of 53. It was, however, not alone as Nalgonda too got the same percentage.

 

The situation is not encouraging even in the first-year (general category) with Medak securing ninth position with a pass percentage of 43. Nalgonda was at the bottom of the pack with just 41 per cent.

Congress leader and former government lecturer Mr K. Venkataswamy said that areas such as Andhole, Narayankhed, Jogipet and Zaheerabad lagged behind in education, hence the poor results for Medak.

“Lack of facilities in government colleges coupled with absence of reputed private junior colleges is a big factor. Even the financial position of people in a few constituencies is less compared to other districts. Nalgonda faring poorly is strange since the district has good colleges in government and private sectors,” he said.

 

Warangal girl gets 466/470
Nearly 415 government junior colleges in the 10 TS districts will be getting major facelifts with the TRS administration earmarking Rs 210 crore for constructing permanent structures as well as improving facilities like labs, libraries etc.

After releasing the Intermediate first and second-year results here on Friday, education minister Kadiyam Srihari said that the Intermediate board would also take steps to increase number of online services to ensure transparency.

The pass percentage in the second-year was 62.7 while it was 53.32 per cent for first-year.

 

K. Ragini, studying MPC in Sri Gayatri College, Karmanghat stood first in first-year with 466 marks out of 470. She said that her next goal was to pursue engineering in astrophysics and later try for the Civil exam. Ragini’s father is a teacher in Jangoan, Warangal district. The highest marks scored in BiPC (first-year) were 436 out of 470.
