In an attempt to streamline the public examination system, the State Government has formed a five-member committee to revamp the entire process of conducting board examinations.

A GO in this regard was passed recently, enabling the School Education Department to evolve a new system for conducting the board examinations.

Based on this, D Sabitha, Principal Secretary, School Education Department, formed a five-member committee with the Director of Government Examinations as its chairman and the Director of School Education, Director of Elementary Education, Director of Matriculation Schools and the Project Director, Rashtirya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan.

At a review meeting conducted recently with the Director of Government Examinations, the Principal Secretary examined the methodology adopted in the present system of Plus Two public examinations.

She pointed out that the Director of Government Examinations lacked coordination with the director of school education, who is the cadre controlling authority for the posts of chief educational officers. In order to avoid such lapses in future, the committee has been formed and directed to act as per the following norms:

The director of government examinations should draw up a list of teachers with more than 10 years of teaching experience for preparing question papers. The committee should decide on the qualification and number of teachers for this purpose.

Adequate training should be given to the selected teachers by way of workshops and the best among them be selected for preparation of question papers. Prescribe guidelines for selecting the press for printing of question papers, security measures and maintaining secrecy in the process.
