KOCHI:From the next academic year onwards, those who have completed 22 years of age can write the plus two examination through a government organisation and a new syllabus.

Kerala State Literacy Mission Authority (KSLMA) has drafted a plan in this regard wherein those who have completed the 10th standard through the continuing education or any examination equivalent to 10th standard and approved by the state government could write the plus two examination. The certificate issued after this examination will be equivalent to that of the students writing regular examination.

There are thousands of candidates who have completed 10th standard in the state. Now this is the right time as anyone who has completed 22 years could register and appear for the examination.

Plus II.JPGKSLMA director M Sujai said that the syllabus for the course has been prepared. Around 80 per cent of the syllabus has to be on international standard.

“Now it is in the process of printing the textbooks for this course and it will start soon. The curriculum committee has already given approval for conducting the classes’, Sujai said.

Those who wish to register can approach any of the KSLMA district offices or offices functioning at the block panchayat level. There are even facilities to register with the Preraks who are conducting classes for the seventh equivalency examination.

The classes for these students will be conducted at the selected higher secondary schools. As these schools are attached with the district panchayat, conducting classes will not be difficult, says Sujai.

There is no need to attend the classes regularly. Sundays and other holidays will be selected to conduct the classes as it will not obstruct the routine functioning of the schools. “To ensure quality of education, teachers with qualification equivalent to that of higher secondary teachers will be selected for the purpose. The service of retired teachers too will be rendered as the authority will not be able to pay much remuneration to the teachers,” he said.

The classes will be conducted for two years. The questionnaire will be prepared by the Higher Secondary Directorate and certificates too will be issued by the them. According to Sujai, the registration for the first batch, which can be considered as a pilot project, will start in the next academic year. Though there are several candidates who wish to write the plus two examination, around 30,000 could be registered in the first phase.

He pointed out that shortage of teachers and sufficient space to conduct the classes forced to limit the seat during the initial period. From the second year onwards, it is expected to go at a steady pace and more candidates could be enrolled.
