With Higher Sec­ondary Cer­tifi­cate (HSC) and Sec­ondary School Cer­tifi­cate (SSC) board ex­am­i­na­tion around the corner, stu­dents have be­gun re­ceiv­ing their hall tick­ets. How­ever, sev­eral schools have pointed out that these hall tick­ets are re­plete with er­rors, with de­tails like stu­dents’ names and sub­jects be­ing wrongly men­tioned. Jo­gesh­wari’s HMW High School’s name, mean­while, has gone as MHW High School on the SSC stu­dents’ hall tick­ets.

“We asked schools to make the cor­rec­tion in their stu­dents’ hall tick­ets and send a copy of this to the Mum­bai Di­vi­sional Board Of­fice.

We re­ceived the com­plaints and they are be­ing rec­ti­fied im­me­di­ately now,” Sharad Khanda­gale, sec­re­tary of the Mum­bai Di­vi­sional Board said.

“This is the first time that stu­dents re­ceived their hall tick­ets on­line. But for a few er­rors like names of stu­dents and sub­jects go­ing wrong, noth­ing ma­jor has been no­ticed thus far,” said one of the con­venors, a prin­ci­pal of a school from the west­ern sub­urb.

An­other prin­ci­pal of a city school also agreed that this could be down to teething trou­bles, since it’s the first time stu­dents got on­line hall tick­ets.

“It’s up to the schools whether they give out coloured or black and white hall tick­ets. But stu­dents’ pic­tures are com­ing out clear. The im­por­tant thing is that the prin­ci­pal’s sig­na­ture and school’s stamp be seen,” the prin­ci­pal said.
