Students of classes IX and X would go through their Summative Assessment I (SA I) for academic session 2013-2014 in the second week of September 2013 through a pen-paper test, announced Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in a recent release.
The question papers will be supplied to schools by the CBSE on 12 September, and the test would start from 16 September by the schools. This time, the CBSE will provide schools with the marking scheme through online on 20 September. However, the board has left it to schools to make their own date sheets.
Each school will be provided with two sets of unique question papers generated through online software by CBSE. Earlier, the board used to provide question papers and marking scheme for conducting the SA through CDs only.
The question papers are being designed by the CBSE and will be sent online to schools in order to maintain uniformity and standardization throughout the process, revealed Navin Maini, research officer (technology), CSBE.
