Kozhikode: The deadline for payment of SAY (Save A Year) and improvement exams without incurring penalties has been reduced to four days, while the penalty amount has been increased.

Following the release of the Plus Two exam results on May 25, students were given until May 29 to make the payment for the SAY exam without facing any penalties. However, one of these days fell on a Sunday, which is a designated holiday. Consequently, students were left with only three days to make the payment. Furthermore, applications were charged a superfine of Rs. 600, and this option was available for just two days after May 29.

Students argue that in previous years, there was a more lenient approach regarding payment deadlines, with a nominal fine of Rs. 20. However, it is alleged that this time, the superfine option was introduced without any alternative. Many students who were not home were unable to apply within the given timeframe. As a result, disputes have arisen between school authorities and parents in various locations.

The headmasters expressed their helplessness, stating that they were following the instructions outlined in the circular they received. With the exam scheduled for June 21, teachers also believe that students should have been afforded more time to submit their applications.
