10. Mere submission of proposals for opening permission during 2017 will not give any right to the management to present the students as regular candidates. In this aspect, in the earlier examinations, certain DEOs have forwarded OMR cum ICR forms / MNR of such schools along with “Under Process certificate” (self-issued) which is irregular. Hence the DEO shall not accept MNRs, OMR cum ICR forms and fees challans from the schools who do not have the permission to open X class. They will be held responsible for any such deviations.

13. 1. While preparing the MNRs & OMR cum ICRs Headmaster of the school concerned should write area code of that school i.e., URBAN / RURAL in consultation with Mandal Revenue Officer concerned & DISE information submitted to C & DSE.
2. He / She is responsible for future complications in connection with admissions in the IIIT course of Telangana State.
14. The OMR cum ICR applications of the candidates who were involved in malpractice earlier should not be forwarded without a permission letter from this office. As such, the Heads of Schools are strictly informed to exercise more care and vigil over such occurrences and not to give scope for any such lapses, since it attracts punishment as per “THE PREVENTION OF MALPRACTICES ACT 25 OF 1997.
If any Headmaster sponsors any private candidate without a school study or any candidate of unrecognized school as their regular candidates, the Headmaster and the correspondent will be prosecuted in addition to initiating disciplinary action and collection of foregone income to the Government from the Headmaster concerned. In addition to heavy penalties as decided by the DGE, the Recognition of such school will be withdrawn.
15. The English medium students, in case they opt for Telugu as 1st Language should opt only Hindi as a second Language and they shall not opt or choose Special English as 2nd Language under any circumstances as Special English under Second Language is dispensed already. Only 09H and 09T are available under Second Language and no other Language is admissible under Second Language.
16. It is known through discrete enquiry that some of the Headmasters / Correspondents of recognized high schools are paying the examination fee in time even before the candidates approach them without mentioning the names on the reverse side of the challan and collecting more money when the students approach them after due dates prescribed, this is highly irregular and punishable.
If the same thing is noticed this year, severe disciplinary action will be taken against the Headmaster concerned, declaring him unfit to be Headmaster for any secondary school as per APER and the MNR & OMR cum ICRs will not be accepted. The Headmaster/Correspondent will have to face any legal complications that may arise from the students and parents.
17. No Headmaster shall take fees from the students unless they submit OMR cum ICR forms duly filled in all aspects including affixing Photo, Signature, etc., All the Heads / Headmasters of the institutions are requested to follow the above instructions scrupulously and furnish the M.N.R. along with ICR forms and challan in which examination fee was remitted to the concerned District Educational Officer’s as per the schedule notified.
18. The previous pattern of Eleven Papers with Six subjects will be continued. All the subjects i.e., 1st Language, 3rd Language, Mathematics, General Science, Social Studies except 2nd Language Hindi/Telugu will have 2 Papers. In the case of 2nd Language, there will be one Paper only.
19. Exams are conducted for 100 marks in all the subjects i.e., 80 marks for the summative test (Board Exam) and 20 marks for the formative tests (internal exams or School-based exam).
20. Pass marks for all the subjects including 2nd Language i.e., Hindi/Telugu is 35. That means candidates shall secure 35 marks in each subject both Summative and Formative marks put together. However, the candidates should secure a minimum of 28 marks in the Board Exam to declare them as passed.
21. Prescribing pass marks in the internal Examinations and in each paper of External Exams (Board Exams) is dispensed with Marks Secured by the Candidates in internal Exams shall only be carried out till the Students pass the Examination.
22. The existing facility of students appearing for SSC Public Examinations without Regular School Study is dispensed with. Such students may appear for Class X through other alternative systems like the National or State Open Schools System. This is a major policy decision and the Headmasters of all the managements are requested to give wide publicity so that students of Without School Study would enroll themselves in Open Schools to appear the SSC Exams. Otherwise, they will lose the opportunity of writing the exams. Specially,
23. All the composite courses offered under group B of 1st language are dispensed within view of the G.O. Ms. No.86 Education Department (SE-C&TBP) Dt:02-04-2003. Therefore the Headmasters of all Managements shall take note of this policy change and prepare the students for the courses/languages offered under group A of the existing scheme only.
That means the Headmasters should prepare the students for 01T, 02T, 01H 02H, 01U 02U, 01K 02K, 01M 02M, 01A 02A, etc and that too for 100 marks paper instead of preparing them for the composite course. Further, the Headmasters are informed to intimate the same to all the Parents in writing so that they too will become thoroughly conversant with dispensing of composite courses.
24. Similarly, codes like special English 11E, 09U, etc, offered under 2nd language are also dispensed with. Now the students of Outside State / Country, will have to write compulsorily either 09T or 09H depending upon their choice of 1st language if they take admission in 6th class itself. In the case, if they take admission in formal schools of Telangana in classes like 7th, 8th, 9th, and 10th they are exempted from writing 2nd language.
However such candidates should get prior permission from the DEO Concerned before remitting the examination fee. Copy of the permission letter shall be enclosed to MNR and Particulars of the exemption orders should be noted against the name of the Candidates in the remarks Colum. Others wise the result of the Candidates will keep under-withheld.
25. OSSC Scheme:- At present OSSC Students are writing Telugu / Urdu (03T / 03U) as First Language for 80 marks and these are raised to 100 mechanically. As per the revised rules students shall write 1st language Telugu 01T, 02T, Urdu 01U, 02U, etc., for 100 marks instead of 80 marks.
The 100 marks will be for both summative and formative i.e 80 marks for summative and 20 marks for formative evaluation. Similarly, there are three Oriental Subjects i.e Sanskrit, Arabic, and Persian for 200 each and examination conducted in 2 papers @ 100 marks per paper. The 100 marks will be distributed across summative and formative evaluation i.e 80 marks for summative and 20 marks for formative evaluation under each paper.
26. The Managements of Private Schools should be very careful and they should get the opening permissions, up to date recognitions, Additional Sections Permission, etc., (if any), otherwise their students will lose one complete academic year and they will be personally held responsible for any such deviations.
