Equivalency course enrolments on rise, thanks to govt recognition
| Tuesday | 19th November, 2019
The number of candidates attempting various equivalency programmes has seen a sharp rise since July 2018 when the government recognised Class XII equivalency on a par with the state higher secondary course.
While only 6,124 candidates took the Class IV and Class XI equivalency exams in 2016-17, the number increased to 11,233 in 2017-18.
These include 19,950 candidates for Class IV equivalency and 14,950 for class VII.
Of the 34,900 candidates who attempted the Class VII and Class IV equivalency, over 21,000 were women.
A special feature of this year’s Class IV and Class VII equivalency exam was the turnout from various jails in the state.
