According to department sources, Basu wanted a report from Das on the action being taken against more than 10,000 students who failed the state board XII exams. At the end of the meeting, Das said the matter would be resolved soon and all head teachers were asked to submit the relevant marks.
“The protests, which have spread to various schools in the state, have embarrassed the government. In an effort to resolve the issue, the education minister met the president of the HS council on Tuesday evening, ”said an official of the department. Out of 720,000 HS candidates, about 24,000 failed in Plus-2 boards, which led to massive protests in Bengal. “Since this is an epidemic year, the state wants to cut every one,” the official said.

The council has instructed the heads of schools where students are annoyed with their weak board marks, to submit scores with relevant documentation for review. However, the government wants an immediate solution to the problem, which has spread to various schools in the state.
“One student passed 12th class and reached 12th class. Thus, it is surprising that the same student HS failed, the results of which were calculated, based on his two previous tests – X and XII – which he cleared. There seems to be some error in the number calculation, ”said the headmaster of a school in Kolkata.
The council canceled the high school exams this year due to epidemics. Final scores were calculated after factoring in numbers from the 10th Board, Class Twelfth Annual Examinations and Project and Practical Examinations conducted in Class XII. Other boards like CISCE and CBSE also canceled their 10th and 12th class examinations and created various formulas to evaluate students.
