The final merit list will release on July 10. Students who have applied can check the merit list available on the official website.
In comparison to last year, the number of applicants who scored 95 per cent has increased to 2,584 from last year’s 2, 066. However, the students scoring in the 90s have declined to 13,575 from 14,589 last year.
According to education officials, about 1000 students filled incorrect information during the application process due to which there are errors in the merit list where students scoring lower marks in the SSC boards have been given higher ranks as compared to others. The Department has opened the correction facility until 5 pm on July 6 so that students can correct the mistakes in their forms.
The School Education Department is responsible for administration of elementary, secondary and higher secondary education and manages more than 20 million students and over 6 lakh teachers in the state.
