    A week after the Haryana Board of School Education (HBSE) declared its class 10 results, students of one more school erupted in protest over poor pass percentage. As many as 88 of 100 students at the Girls’ Secondary School, Arjun Nagar, who appeared for the exams this year, failed. Around 10 girls then launched a protest demanding re-evaluation of papers and staged a demonstration on Pataudi Road, blocking traffic for nearly an hour on Monday morning. A team of police personnel and Rapid Action Force (RAF) was rushed to the spot to clear the road. The girls later went to the district education officer and submitted a memorandum to him. The students also met sub-divisional magistrate (SDM), North, Bharat Bhushan Gogia and requested that their answer papers be checked again. “I scored 99 in one subject and just 12 in another.

    How is it possible that I have failed despite securing distinction in one subject? We need to get our answer papers re-evaluated. My exams went well and I had studied hard throughout the year,” Rupal Tiwari, a student of class 10, who was declared failed on May 22, said. Chanchal(15), a student of class 10 who got compartment in four subjects, meaning he will have to repeat the papers next year, said, “I have secured more than 75% marks in two subjects and I have never failed even a class test .The teachers count me as one of their favourite students. I have no clue how I scored just 3 in Maths and science subjects”. The teachers rushed to the Mini Secretariat after getting word that the students had been detained by police teams. “We were shocked when the parents arrived in school and informed us about the protest.
