    In HSC General stream, 20,673 sat for the examinations, while 204 were absent, and in Science stream, 10,655 appeared, while 101 were absent.

    HSC science students sat for the Physics paper, while commerce students appeared for Accountancy paper. SSC students had their first language paper.

    Like last year, most schools welcomed the students, gave them flowers, applied tilak on their foreheads and offered them sweets.

    However, the enthusiasm seemed to be missing this year. The reason: Principal and staff of respective schools were sent to other schools for invigilation. The flying squads were also doubled this year with 135 squads keeping a vigilant eye at the examination centers.

    As against teachers and principals who comprised the flying squad till last year, this year under the watchful eye of the district collector, municipal corporation employees, collectorate and other state government department staff have been brought into the squad.
