Hyderabad, India: CBSE had declared the Class 12th results on 26th May 2018. The Board results recorded a great increase in the success rate of students, but the schools’ mechanism of student counselling failed tremendously this year as well.
Satvik Mishra, an 18-year-old student of St Andrews, Bowenpally had committed suicide after the declaration of CBSE Class 12th results.
According to the report, Satvik had failed the Mathematics exam and after that, he was going through extreme disappointment. He did not call the CBSE helpline for further counselling and not discussed the problem with his parents.
Jawaharnagar inspector Sudhakar S. told media about the case. He said that Satvik had a conversation with his friend over the phone just after the results were announced. “Satvik informed his mother that he was going outside and left the house, only to go to the terrace of the fifth floor of the building from where he jumped,” Inspector said.
“At around 1 pm, there was some noise outside the building, there was the body of Satvik and he died on the spot.” He further added.
“Satvik’s parents had always offered him, their hands of support and never pressurised him for doing better.”
“It was just the matter of a compartment exam.” His classmates and neighbours informed the police.
There is nothing else which has come into light till now other than the Board results in the initial Police investigation, for taking such an extreme step by Satvik.
However, Government and schooling bodies have been taking several measures regularly to overcome stress and anxiety issues in students, but nothing has been improved. The ratio is not increasing every year. Students are still taking such drastic steps leaving behind the entire system of education and the dealing authorities under a big question mark.
