'Special classes for SSLC failed students': KSEEB
The exams have already taken place, the results have almost declared. There are students who topped and there are students who failed. One of such examinations was SSLC. 
 
 
Many failed the examination. So, the Karnataka State Secondary Education Examination Board (KSEEB) is now all set to pass an order to all the schools including private schools to conduct special classes compulsorily for students who failed in Secondary School Leaving Certificate (SSLC).
 
 
The class 10 (SSLC) results were declared on May 16 and the exams took place in March.
 
 
The board had to take a decision as such because of a drop in passing percentage of 2.66 percent this year. While last year, the pass percentage was 81.82 percent, this year it dipped to 79.16 percent.
 
 
Every year supplementary exams take place for the students who fail the examination. So, the board has decided that before the supplementary exam begins, all the schools in the state have to compulsorily conduct special classes every day for two to four hours for a period of fifteen days for their own students who flunked the SSLC exams.
 
 
The board has also decided to cancel the affiliation of schools with zero passing percentage.
