New norms for HSLC candidates introduced
High School Leaving Certificate (HSLC) and High Madrassa candidates will write their exams with black ink from now on. “The use of blue ink will no longer be allowed,” announced the Secretary of Board of Secondary Education, Assam (SEBA) Prabin Chandra Sarma on Saturday.
Speaking at a program in Tezpur, the SEBA secretary announced several other important changes apart from the discontinuation in the use of blue ink.
The online filling of the forms for the upcoming 2018 HSLC exams have started and that SEBA has come up with a provision of re-verification of the Admit cards for the exams. Candidates from open schools are to fill up the forms separately.
While talking about the online filling of forms, Sharma mentioned that the registration fees for the candidates coming from BPL families will be free of cost.
He further stated that the examination centres have been changed as regular classes of other students are hampered in the process of setting up the same zones every year.
In order to keep the exam a disciplined one by introducing the new norms in the board, the SEBA secretary expressed hope for a chaos-free examination.
