Following the decision over the possible ‘jumbling’ of candidates for Intermediate Public Practical Examination, the Board of Intermediate Education (BIE) announced the schedule for the examinations on Monday.

The examination scheduled to begin on Feb 6 will follow the regular system of past years, where the candidates would appear for the examination in their respective colleges. “As the process of normalization for NEET and ISEET are new for the students, we do not want to cause further stress this year by introducing the jumbling system,” said Rama Sankar Naik, secretary of BIE.

For the benefit of students appearing for various national-level competitive examinations this year, BIE will release the excess portion covered in NCERT textbooks as a booklet by March 23. “This will help students appearing for NEET and ISEET in 2013,” said the secretary. Though the revised syllabus textbooks have been introduced for intermediate first-year, the second-year textbooks will be a part of the curriculum only for 2013-14. This year, a marginal increase of five per cent has been recorded in the number of candidates appearing for IPE in science stream as 6.67 lakh candidates are scheduled to appear for practical exams till Feb 25.

The examination will be conducted in four spells in two sessions-- between 9 am and 12 noon followed by 2 pm to 5 pm--depending on the strength of a given junior college.
