The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has proposed to conduct the board exams for class 10 and 12 on the same dates in two shifts form 2018.
The board believes that this will give teachers more time to check the answer sheets.
During the meeting, the two panels, which included principals from the top schools in New Delhi, suggested ways that will improve the evaluation system of the board. The board will take these suggestions in review before reaching a final decision.
CBSE conducts the board exams from 1st March. The exam runs for about 45 days. This year, due to the state assembly elections, the exams were delayed by more than a week.
If both the exams are conducted on the same day, Class 12 in the morning and Class 10 in the afternoon, the duration of the exams will be decreased. This will give the teachers more time to check the answer sheets and thus reduce the errors. Most of the principals were in favor of verification of marks. However, they didn’t support a re-evaluation of answer sheets.
After a number of complaints were filed by the students regarding the evaluation system of the board, it had decided to renew its system.
According to the board, even though they take extra efforts to cut faults, sometimes there is an error in the calculation of marks, writing them down in answer sheets, or typing them in computers.
