A Note: for all Head of the Institutions under Higher Secondary Council
This is to request all HMs of the concerned schools to supervise, monitor and inspire the students of science stream. This includes improvement of the teaching methods, holding regular tutorials, and special classes for proper guidance and understanding along with regular practical classes in subjects like Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics. A thorough guidance for conceptual learning is imperative for science students. This may require additional classes or teaching hours to impart adequate knowledge which would help create better scholars.
Clarity of conception is a fundamental requirement for science subjects. Students should be inspired by the teachers to study science in proper spirit and undergo practical sessions that would help clear their doubts.
The essence of this note is to create an awareness amongst teachers, students and guardians in selection of streams. Students should be guided to select the subjects of their real interest.
The H.S. Council in its recent study has noted the poor performance in science subject by a large number of students of various institutions. Consequently the H.S. council has decided to change this trend in the coming days with co-operation and sound academic planning of teachers, students and guardians who will contribute significantly in improving the performance in science subjects that would support the students to achieve their desired profession in future.
Consequent upon the publication of results for this year H.S. examination, a detailed comparative study was carried out to assess the performance of students in the H.S. examination vis-a-vis their performance in Class XI.
It was noted that in some schools there has been a mismatch of success between the students of Class XI and their performance in H.S. examination. This did not meet the quality parameters of the council. To arrest this undesirable trend it has been decided to introduce a quality improvement policy. This policy is to ensure a monitoring system by which the Heads of the concerned Schools will drive to initiate remedial measures. They are also directed to contact the Council to have a look at the comparative study made by the H.S. council along with effective suggestion for technical/academic guidance in science based subjects.
The council believes that this quality improvement policy and constant monitoring will ensure greater success in results of students in the H.S. exam in the coming years.
