SSC examinations will begin from March 25 with the new patter and syllabus for Secondary School Certificate exams. Taking these into consideration, students will be given 15 minutes extra so that they have sufficient time to understand and answer the question paper.
This has been confirmed by District Educational Officer K Lingaiah that the duration of examinations would be 2.45 hours instead of 2.3 hours whereas the second lanugage paper duration will be of 3.15 hours.
A tital of 63,126 students will appear for this SSC examination across 274 centers that will be managed by 274 chief superintendents and 3328 invigilators. Only Chief Superintendent will be allowed to use cellular phones in the centers. This will help curbe any malpractices and cheating in exams. However, students will be able to leave the examination center before the full-time of exams.
Cbse has gone tough on ragging and bullying in schools. It has laid fresh guidelines to curb such incidents. It is interesting to notice that cbse has suggested a graded response mechanism to address such cases of bullying. It further adds that a comprehensive list of guidelines may be incorporated for the school management with actions and penalties against such misconduct.
These actions may include verbal / written warning, suspension from attending of schools/classes , withholding of results, cancellation of school/ board results, imposition of fines and as strong as expulsion from school in case of rare circumstances.
Cbse has taken into consideration incidents like suicide attempt of a Bihar chief minister’s son after he was allegedly ragged in a school in Gwalior and many more such incidents. The board has also urged schools to keep a complaint/suggestion box to monitor feedback regularly. It further states that it is primarily a responsibility of schools to monitor and stop such incidents and implications of neglect will be penalized.
We realize that its a very positive move from cbse schools if they keep a strong check on such incidents and make schools an unbiased place to study cbse study material.
