Cuttack, July 27: Hundreds of students are facing problems for admission in +2 following mistakes in the original pass certificates issued by the Board of Secondary Education (BSE), Odisha.
Students have been issued certificates with wrong spelling of name, surname or mistake in father’s name.
The Board had asked authorities of all high schools in the state to take steps for the correction of mistakes in the original pass certificates issued by the Board by July 20.
However, due to ignorance, hundreds of students in the state have not applied for correction of the mistakes in their certificates within the prescribed period.
As the correction procedure time has passed, the school authorities are expressing their incapability and asking to change the Aadhar card as per the issued matric certificate.
The school administration is asking to change the Aadhar card according to the issued matric certificate. But, to change the Aadhar card you have to change all the documents to be produced in the process, which is not possible, said a guardian.
The Student Academic Management System (SAMS) Centre members are asking students to submit an affidavit along with an undertaking to submit the corrected certificate after admission.
Similarly, a senior official of the BSE said, students can apply for correction by submitting an affidavit in the board along with the recommendation letter of the school administration.
The students will have to submit the corrected certificate at their respective colleges and the college will correct it on the SAMS portal. Following this, their +2 certificates will be corrected automatically, said senior lecturer of Ravenshaw Junior College, Sanatan Behera.
