A student of 10th standard was allowed to sit in the board exams after the court issued orders to the school. As per information, this student was not given permission to appear for her 10th Board exams since her attendance was shorter than the prescribed school norms. Only after the court’s interference, was the student allowed to write her exams.
Civil Judge-South Sweta Sharma issued orders to the Principal of Gyan Mandir Senior Secondary School and District Education Officer to allow the student Sonu Kunwar, D/O Chandan Singh Sarangdevot resident of Gundia Bheru, to appear for her Board exams. The student’s mother had sought help from the court in this matter. Director of Education Department, Assistant Director and Secretary of the Board of Secondary education were the accused as per the report. As per the allegation, Sonu Kunwar was not able to attend school because of a severe injury in her foot. On recovery, she had presented a 45 day medical fitness certificate from the Maharana Bhupal Hospital. As per the documents presented in the court regarding Sonu’s attendance, the calculation came out to be 74.13 percent. After adding the days as per the certificate, the attendance was crossing the required percentage of school norms.
