School and mass education minister Samir Ranjan Dash: Exam in old format with full syllabus to return from next year.Samir Ranjan Dash, the minister of education for K–12, stated on Wednesday that students will take the traditional single annual exam in 2023 after completing the entire curriculum, reversing the trend of the previous two years in which a portion of the curriculum was cut due to Covid-related disruptions. This year, the students took part in two exams (summative 1 and summative 2), and their grades were determined by how well they did on both external and internal testing.
“We were compelled to change the format of the board test in the wake of the Covid crisis and the significant disruption to classroom learning. However, I don’t believe that this year should again follow the same pattern.Since things are back to normal and kids are going to school without incident, we might reinstate the previous exam and evaluation system. However, a final decision has not yet been made in this area,” stated Dash.
The Board of Secondary Education (BSE) decided to change the method this year after receiving complaints from students and parents last year about how it evaluated students’ performance based on their results on the Class IX final exam and Class X practise test. “The pandemic made last year’s situation unusual. We had chosen this distinct approach to assessment since there was uncertainty about the future as well.
From the following year, we might not require this rating system.For the current academic year, we have begun teaching the entire syllabus in class, according to BishnupadaSethi, principal secretary of the department of schools and public education. The results of the annual High School Certificate (HSC) exam were released on Wednesday, with a passing rate of approximately 90.55 percent of students.
5,26,818 students took the test overall this year. 5,17,847 of them passed. For unclear reasons, more than 45,000 pupils didn’t show up for the exam.
