In order to avoid confusion over the syllabus for Mathematics-I A and Botany-I exams, to be held from Monday, the Board of Intermediate Education (BIE) has decided to segregate regular students from those clearing backlog and private candidates.
Backlog students of Intermediate first year and private candidates will write the exam based on old syllabus, while regular students will come under the revised Central syllabus, keeping in view national exams such as NEET and ISEET.
“The set numbers will be the same. The two categories of students will sit in separate classrooms. No additional exam centres has been created for this as hardly 10 to 20 students will be writing the exam based on the old syllabus at any given centre,” according to BIE. If these students fail in these exams, they will have to write them next based on the revised syllabus.
Meanwhile, the students appearing under the new syllabus are complaining about the lack of model papers for IPE-1.
The revised syllabus for Intermediate second year will be implemented from the coming academic year, the annexure for which will be made available soon.
Nearly 8.91 lakh students will appear for the Intermediate first year examinations under regular category, across 2,633 centres in the state.
