The fifth edition of Global Aptitude Index (SGAI) would be conducted online by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) from 8 to 20 December. The schedule for the online examination has been intimated to all the regional board offices of CBSE. Those centres that don’t have a stable internet connection are said to opt for offline method for taking the examination. However, the exams need to get written by the candidates on computer instead of paper.
In order to have a smooth ongoing of the new and improvised online programme, the board has taken some steps so that the candidates opting for the examination doesn’t feel any trouble while opting for it. The computer based assessment requires a certain technical knowledge and thus the board is keen on providing the same to the schools. Each of the schools would require an SGAI coordinator who would act as an interface between the board and the students. The person who would coordinate would either be a counselor or a senior teacher from the school.
To every coordinator in the schools support through e-mail/online chat and telephonic assistance would be given during the entire SGAI assessment, so that the participants can get assisted while opting for the examination. SGAI has been made an optional programme by the board for schools which would ultimately help in decision making on subject choices for the students of Class XI for their future. The programme would further help students to understand their interest areas and take up subjects of their choices in future.
