The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has directed all its affiliated schools to conduct their Summative Assessment- I (SA-I) in the second half of September. The schools have been provided an option to set their own date sheet for examinations of standard IX and X.
However, all the schools in Nagpur have announced to have a common date sheet to conduct SA-I. The decision has been taken so that the students could not exchange their question papers. The sources confirmed that since the date sheet of all NSSC members will be the same, a single question paper will be chosen. The Nagpur Sahodaya School Complex (NSSC), a group of about 50 schools in Nagpur, has decided to start their SA-I from September 20.
George Thadathil, principal, KV Vayusenanagar, while confirming that same pattern will be adopted by all the Kendriya Vidyalayas (KVs) of Nagpur said, “We will certainly be going with a common date sheet for the entire region. The question papers will come from our Bhopal office and that will ensure uniformity of testing. Our SA-I team will also start as per the timeline given by the CBSE.
The All India Engineering/Architecture Entrance Examination (AIEEE), a prestigious gateway to IITs, NITs, various deemed universities and few state colleges, has been scheduled for April 29, 2012. Students can choose to have admission in BE/B.Tech and B.Arch. /B.Planning.
According to a circular received from CBSE, the examination conducting body, AIEEE will be conducted online on a large scale. The decision has been taken keeping in mind the last year’s examination that was delayed by three hours due to leak of a paper in Lucknow on May 1. A fresh examination was conducted on May 11 for all those students who were unable to give the examination earlier.
