Thiruvananthapuram: Severe laxities were alleged against the general education department on the conduct of higher secondary examination in Gulf countries.

According to the examination manual, the state government has to deploy senior teachers of higher secondary department for supervision of examinations at aided schools. However, as per the latest order, no invigilators were appointed for this. Instead, only chief superintendents were appointed to the eight examination centres in the Gulf countries.

The teachers of only government higher secondary schools could be appointed as invigilators of practical examinations, chief superintendents and deputy chiefs for examinations at unaided schools in Kerala. Though all schools in the Gulf countries belong to the unaided category, this condition was not followed.

By this, the teachers of the unaided schools in the Gulf countries will have to carry out invigilation themselves, which may question the genuinity of the examination proceedings, accused AHSTA general secretary S Manoj.

Allegations were also raised for ignoring the teachers in aided schools with several years of service from the higher secondary examination duty.
