The Summative Assessment -II, 2013 for classes IX & X scheduled to be held in the month of March, 2013, will not be based on blue prints and Sample Questions Papers. The SA-II will rather follow a more comprehensive structure of examination and flexible patterns. This will be in effect from the Summative Assessment-II of the current academic year i.e. 2012-13 in all the main subjects
In a major decision, finally, a consensus between the government and IITs over entrance exams has resolved on Wednesday evening. The compromise was reached at a meeting of IIT Council, the highest decision-making body having representatives from government and directors of all the institutes
Further, as proposed earlier, board marks would not be considered for admission into the IITs, NITs etc.
New selection process will be based on merit as below. This will be implemented from 2013
The entire process will consists of two exams - main and advanced - to be held on separate days. While the main exam will be conducted by the CBSE, the advanced exam that is likely to take place about a month after the main exam will be conducted by the IITs. The top 1.5 lakh students from the main exam merit list can take the advanced entrance exam. To be eligible for the IIT merit list the score of the advanced test as well as the condition that the aspirant is in the top 20 percentile of his/her board will be taken into account.
"Top 20 per cent students of each state board and advanced exam marks will be qualifying standard for preparing IIT merit list. To get admission into IITs, it's important that students score enough to be in top 20 per cent of their board (state, ICSE or CBSE) and also score well in main exam.
The compromise formula is in line with the decision of the IIT Joint Admission Board (JAB), comprising directors of IITs, which met in Delhi last Saturday.
The 15 IITs are in New Delhi, Kanpur, Mumbai, Kharagpur, Chennai, Roorkee, Guwahati, Rajasthan, Gandhi Nagar, Patna, Hyderabad, Ropar, Mandi, Bhubaneshwar and Indore.
Have you read our previous post on CBSE planning to bring in Open-Book type Exams?? Please Continue to read our What is Open-Book Exam.
What is your first reaction when the teacher announces that your next exam will be an open book test? Most students breathe a sigh of relief, because they think they're getting a break. But are they?
In fact, open book tests are not easy tests. Open book tests teach you how to find information when you need it. The questions are designed to teach you how to use your brain. And contrary to popular belief, you do not get off the hook when it comes to studying for an open book exam. You just need to study a little differently.
It seems CBSE is planning to restructure question paper for 10 and 12 CBSE classes. These changes may be in effect from upcoming CBSE Board Exams in 2013.
Questions for Classes 10 and 12 will be reformulated and restructured to encourage students to apply their mind.
