Guwahati: The All Assam Students’ Union came out to rescue those students who did not do well in the HSLC examination result announced on Saturday.
In its effort to cheer up the students suffering from an inferiority complex, ASSU general secretary Lurin Jyoti Gogoi said, “You must have failed in the HSLC examination or could not secure the expected results. Even then, you all are vital for society. We are always with you in every up-and-down. We will build the society together.”
Notably, a girl student, identified as Jury Rai from Bongaigaon district reportedly committed suicide on Saturday after failing to clear the HSLC examination.
This year, altogether 120285 candidates failed in the HSLC examination while 48278 candidates secured third divisions.
Gogoi stressed that the apex students’ body has been working to sort out an action plan to encourage and re-energise the students who either failed to clear the HSLC examination or did not achieve their desired results. “We must boost their morale to let them realise that everyone has a role to play for the greater interest of society.”
The general secretary also congratulated the students who secured ranks in the toppers’ list. “We must recognise the herculean tasks of those students who burdened a great deal to secure ranks. Categorically, we are overwhelmed to congratulate to those who have done well in the examination despite appearing from a remote corner besides overcoming financial hindrances,” he said.
Gogoi added, ‘We will extend all financial support and necessary guidance to those who hail from poor economic background. We will ensure that everyone is privileged to pursue higher education in their aimed discipline.’
