According to her father, A. Ravindra Chary, Mitha studied in the Innovative College and appeared for the second year intermediate exams.

Hyderabad: Two Intermediate students, one in Bhongir district and another in Medak district, committed suicide as they were depressed over the results they obtained. So far at least 19 students have committed suicide over the results.

A. Mitha, 19, killed herself by hanging because she became depressed over the results. According to her father, A. Ravindra Chary, Mitha studied in the Innovative College and appeared for the second year intermediate exams.

Bommalaramaram Police Station, Sub Inspector of police Venkatesh said, “She went into depression after the Intermediate results were out. She reportedly failed in two subjects, Physics and  Zoology.

Based on the complaint from the deceased’s father, the police registered the case under section 174 CrpC and further investigation is underway.

In another case, 18-year-old Intermediate student Ch Palel Raju committed suicide by hanging from a tree in a  Zilla Parishad school in Shankarampet village.

Speaking about the suicide, Prakash Goud Sub Inspector of police, Shankarampet Police station said, “He appeared for the Intermediate second year examination. After the results were out he came to know that he had failed in two subjects. He became depressed and committed suicide.”

Based on the complaint from the deceased’s father, the police officials registered the case under section 174 CrpC and further investigation is underway.

Colleges can’t approach board

Colleges cannot directly approach the Intermediate Board to check on doubtful results. Even if a college has had 90 per cent pass last year and only 40 per cent pass this year, it is only the students who can ask for the results to be re-checked.

A senior college principal explained that, “The colleges can’t directly approach the intermediate board as they think that we want to improve our score. Even government college principals will not ask the board as they will be told to improve rather than question the board. This is the main reason that student unions are fighting with the government as it directly relates to them.”

Telangana State Government Junior Lecturers’ Association president Dr Madhusudhan Reddy told this newspaper that, “There are some inter colleges that have got zero pass percentage and others that have got less than 50 per cent. The colleges that had a consistently good pass percentage and have dipped this year can ask for evaluation but those who have not been able to reach the mark cannot make tall claims.”

The discrepancies in marks in the Maths paper this year, which has been a talking point, could be because Maths paper B was a tough one compared to the other sets. The students who attempted paper B could have got less marks than those students who attempted A and C sets which were easier.
