The Odisha Board’s matriculation examination will be held from April 29. This exam will be held in offline mode. Chief Secretary Suresh Chandra Mohapatra gave this information. He informed that the annual high school, Sanskrit board, and state open school examinations conducted by the Board of Secondary Education (BSE) Odisha have been scheduled between April 29 and May 6.
Giving information about this decision of the Odisha government, Mohapatra said, “For more than two years, not only India (Odisha) but the whole world has been badly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, it has affected the students and their studies too.” In the course of the 2020-21 academic session, the matriculation examination was canceled and the results were declared through an alternate method of evaluation.”
He further said that in the current academic year 2021-22 the situation has improved and offline classes have started. The Board of Secondary Education (BSE) Odisha, in discussion with all the stakeholders, has decided on the modalities for conducting this year’s matriculation examination and assessment. After the discussion, the government has decided to conduct Summative Assessment-II for class 10th students. It will be compulsory for all the students and will be done in offline mode. Explain that this exam will be conducted for one subject every day.
In order to reduce the pressure on the students, the government has decided to conduct assessment through three tier evaluation criteria including two alternative modes of evaluation and the third one is the assessment decided by the Board of Secondary Education. Mohapatra said that the highest score obtained by any means will be considered as the last mark.
