Despite diligently attending all subjects at the Missa High School examination center, Borah found himself subjected to negligence from the Board of Secondary Education, Assam (SEBA). The crux of the issue lies in Borah being inaccurately marked absent during the social science examination.

Expressing his disappointment, Borah highlighted his exemplary performance in other subjects, including Mathematics (72), English (74), Assamese (70), and Science (72), with a commendable letter grade in Hindi. Despite his presence during the social science examination, he was unfairly labeled absent, prompting him and his family to voice their concerns.

Borah’s father, deeply troubled by this discrepancy, has urged school authorities to conduct a thorough investigation into the matter. He vehemently demands justice for his son, emphasizing his personal assurance of Ankur’s attendance on the examination day. The perplexity arises from the fact that despite Borah’s commendable performance in other subjects, he was unjustly marked absent in social science.

This incident underscores the critical necessity for robust oversight and accountability mechanisms within SEBA to avert such unjust outcomes. The Borah family’s impassioned plea for rectification highlights the pivotal role of fair evaluation processes in safeguarding students’ academic rights. Notably, the Board of Secondary Education, Assam (SEBA), announced the results for the High School Leaving Certification (HSLC) Class 10 board exams on Saturday at 10:30 am.
