Assam: Dhubri District Lags Behind Again in HSLC Results, Raises Concerns

Guwahati, 20th April: Once more, Dhubri district faces disappointment in the aftermath of the 2024 High School Leaving Certificate (HSLC) examination results. Despite Assam’s commendable statewide pass percentage of 75.7%, Dhubri struggles with a meager 62.6% pass rate, highlighting underlying educational challenges in the region.

Out of the 22,958 students from Dhubri who appeared for the exams conducted by the Board of Secondary Education, Assam (SEBA) between February 16th and March 4th, 2024, only 14,379 managed to pass. Among them, 3,721 secured first division, 7,169 secured second division, and 3,489 passed with a third division.

Of significant concern is the absence of Dhubri students from the list of top five scorers in the state. This pattern of underperformance is not new; Dhubri has consistently fallen short of the state average in recent years. In 2023, the district’s pass percentage was 63.35%, lower than the state’s 72.69%, while in 2022, only 48.14% of Dhubri students passed the exams, compared to the state’s average of 56.49%.

Teachers and concerned citizens emphasize the need for a multi-faceted approach to address the underlying issues. This approach should encompass teacher training, resource allocation, student motivation, and infrastructure development to uplift the educational landscape in Dhubri and ensure a brighter future for its students.
