In a strict decision that has come in to safeguard the interest of the students, the Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board has made it compulsory for the teachers who are involved in the process of evaluations to continue checking the answer sheets for six continuous hours.
Previously there were allegations made to these teachers involved in evaluation that they finish checking 30 answer sheets daily and leave the centre in a hurry. The general board meeting held by the two boards decided that the teachers would now have to stay for at least six hours and before the stipulated time they would not be allowed to leave the centre. This move would make sure that the teachers give adequate time to check the answer sheets and doesn’t handle them in a jinx.
The board has also welcomed suggestions from the board members on how to develop the semester examination system for Class XII science students. The members of the meeting were complaining about the stress that the students are going through to handle two years of academic study together which is also giving rise to the number of tuition classes in the state.
The secretary of the Board RI Patel said that the suggestions that were made in the meeting were to improve the prevailed situation and bring in mandatory changes in the overall system. The board has not yet decided on the reversal of only Class XII examinations for the students immediately. The board cleared the Rs. 112 crore budgets for functioning in the next financial year 2015-16.
