CBSE Schools to get online question paper


Chennai: The Central Board of Secondary Education – CBSE will send online question papers its affiliated schools for school-based Summative Assessment for classes IX and X examination. According to J. Ajeeth Prasath Jain, secretary Chennai Sahodaya Complex, even if a school plans to administer examination at a different date then the confidentially of the will be maintained.
“Until last year, the board allowed us to choose from 25-30 question papers. So, if two schools happened to chose the same paper and scheduled the examination on different dates, confidentiality of the paper is compromised,” he said.
 
The question papers would be generated through Integrated Test Management System, he said.

CBSE has asked its affiliated schools to register by 15Feb, 2013 through the official portal; then only schools will be able to download the question papers for all subjects on 5March, 2013 and 11March, 2013 for Class 9th and 10th examination. In the same manner, marking scheme for Class 9th and Class 10th examination, schools would be able to download on 19 March, 2013 and 29 March, 2013. This system is meant for school based exam, and not applicable for board based examination. . S. Amudha Lakshmi, principal, Chettinad Vidyashram, said that this system was definitely welcome. “Earlier the question papers were given in a CD, and we had to wait for it to arrive. Now, we can get the paper through the click of a mouse,” she said. K. Mohana, principal of Modern Senior Secondary School, in whose school all the 180 class X students are writing the board exam, said that the procedure has been simplified.

CBSE has asked schools to conduct SA Examination for class 10th between 16 March 2013 and 31 March 2013. The Board based exam will be held during 2 March 2013 and 15 March 2013.

Delhi University set to offer baccalaureate honours degrees

Beginning July 2013 academic session, the Delhi University (DU) will offer combined undergraduate programs. The traditional BA, B.Com and B.Sc classification will be dispensed. Now students will be available to choose from mixed disciplines of science, arts and commerce altogether. Students applying for under graduate studies will choose from Discipline I and Discipline II.
While Discipline I will fetch an honors degree at the end of 4 years, students will be eligible to take up a master's course in their Discipline II subjects as well.

The 4 year degree program comprises Discipline I and Discipline II papers; 11 foundation course papers and 5 application course papers. Discipline I will have two project-based research papers to be pursued only by those who continue in the fourth year of degree — the seventh and eighth semesters.

In Discipline I which start from the 1st semester there will be 20 papers. From 3rd semester Discipline II courses will start. English and Modern language will make part of Foundation course. Under value-based-education there will be two papers on mind-body-heat and there will be no exams for these papers.

"There will be 20 Discipline I papers in all and they will start right from the first semester. Discipline II courses will start from the third semester. The foundation course will include one paper each on English and a modern Indian language. There will be two papers on 'mind-body-heat', which is value-based education and there will be no exams for these paper. The whole idea is to offer course in line with international universities. Under new scheme students will be allowed to complete college studies in cross disciplines for example a student of biology will be able to sociology as part of graduate studies.

Foundation courses will also be more enriching and will focus on personality development, IT skills, mathematical training and social developments. On completion of 4 years, a student will be awarded a baccalaureate with honours. However, there shall be two exit options, on completion of 2 years a associate baccalaureate degree will be awarded and completion of 3 years a baccalaureate degree will be awarded.
