KOLKATA: A dip of seventy five thousand candidates in Madhyamik Pariksha 2017 has left West Bengal Board of Secondary Education officials baffled.
"It is very unfortunate that schools in order to shrug-off responsibilities allow all students to appear in Madhyamik Pariksha.
"Usually every year there is an average 15000 increase in the number of Madhyamik examinees from the previous year.
Once a candidate appears in Madhyamik exam with an old syllabus, even if he or she is unsuccessful, they will get another three attempts to clear the exam in the same old syllabus.
But, if any academic year sees the end of old curriculum then there is always a huge jump in the number of examinees appearing in Madhyamik Pariksha .
