2nd Update, Saturday 28 May 2016:
Launched in good faith, MP board’s ‘Ruk Jana Nahi’ program has received tremendous response. Tremendous being said for the scheme itself, not for the fragmented education system of Madhya Pradesh. The only reason this scheme, which is launched for giving second chance to failed students of 10th and 12th students in MP state and to save a year of their schooling, is because there are too many failed students in the state.
The scheme witnessed the incoming of nearly 1.55 lakh applications within the 7 days the window to apply was open. The board even had to extend the last date one more day from 25 May to 26 May. Until 25 May itself, nearly 1.5 lakh students had sent their online applications. Keeping that in mind, lets dig in on what’s the aftermath of board results in Madhya Pradesh and how did this happen.
In 2016, the overall pass percentage improved by 4% for 10th class results. The overall pass percentage was recorded at 53.87%, an improvement over 2015’s 49.79% and 2014’s 47.74%. The best overall pass percentage recorded in MP state’s 10th board results history was in 2011, at 54.76% as Hindustan Times reported.
Same’s the case for 12th class where the pass percentage revolve around 50% only. This year, in 2016, the state capital Bhopal saw an overall pass percentage of 56.46%. Highest in the state was in Mandsaur district at 71.78% and lowest in Bhind at 15.15%.
So to round it up, out of the total around 23 lakh students who took board exams this year including 10th and 12th class, somewhere around half of them failed. Means, more than 10 lakh students out of 23 lakhs who appeared for boards this year, FAILED.
So, it really shouldn’t be a surprise when one and a half lakh apply for a scheme, specially launched for the failed ones. And more importantly, what’s of the left 8.5 lakhs? No doubt, they’re gonna wait and study one more year through regular, private or open schooling.
It’s not the fault of students I’m pointing to, it’s the schooling system that’s the devil. Despite centre’s push towards improving education sphere of the country, the problem lies in the deep roots of unhealthy schooling system. Well, whatever may the reason be here, but the government should launch more encouraging programs like this to give students hope, a second chance.
The students must keep in touch with the board’s helpline to get details on the admission cards and exam dates. Though the exams are set to begin from 15th June, the complete timetable hasn’t been publicized. It will be in due time, though.

After CBSE, the Madhya Pradesh Board of Secondary Education has launched a programme ‘Ruk Jana Nahi’ for students who have failed in MP Board Class 12 examinations. (Kindly Note: CBSE has not given it any name, instead it is a re-appear exam for the failed students). This is being done so that the hard-working students do not lose a year.
As per the newly launched programme, the state will give Class 12 failed students a golden chance to appear in the exam scheduled in the month of June. The same opportunity would be provided to students who fail in the class 10 exams, the results of which are due to be announced on May 16.
The forms of the Open Board examination can be filled online from May 20 while the exams will be held from June 15. The result of class 12 will be declared on July 15 and of class 10 on August 15. To facilitate the Sanskrit Board students, the board is going to organize the coaching for students from June 1 to 8.
The Maharishi Patanjali Sansthan will provide coaching to students who are appearing in the exam in Sanskrit medium. The Board has launched the programme so that the failed students do not lose one year. Students will have to appear only in those subjects in which they have failed.
Amid all this, a question pops up in mind in favour of Class 12 students. Madhya Pradesh is a participating state in JEE Main 2016. Many of the students say 90% would have surely taken the JEE Main Exam and might have also cleared the same. Now, what about these students if in case they have not cleared any one subject? Though the JoSAA- Joint Seat Allocation Authority, consists of representatives from the JAB 2016 (for IITs/ISM) and CSAB 2016 (for NITs, IIITs, and Other-GFTIs) has not yet released the dates of counselling. But what can be witnessed after browsing over Google is that CBSE will make final class 12 marks to JoSAA in the third week of June. If one goes by the same, the first seat allocation round is expected to be held in the first week of July 2016.
If assumed that the re-appear exam result will be declared in July, then their one year is still ruined or there will be some option left?
The third week of June and July 15 has a difference of 3 weeks. Next question, the JoSAA counselling will again get delayed this year too which will ultimately result in delayed admissions and delayed commencing of the academic session 2016-17. Moreover, if the last year news coverage after the JoSAA counselling are to be believed then Union Ministry of Human Resource Development instructed all state boards to declare the Class 12 results by May 31 this year. This comes in response to last year’s delay in starting the Joint Seat Allocation process, which could not start in time because some boards had not released their results in time for CBSE to tabulate the results and generate the JEE (Main) ranks. If the intervention succeeds, this will be a very welcome move. But what about the students who have re-appeared? Will their dreams to secure a seat in IIT’s, NITs, IIITs will remain a mere dream or there will be any ray of hope?
