More Time Sought To Read Question Paper

Members of school teachers and principals’ associations in the State have requested the School Education Department to provide an additional 15 minutes for students taking the Standard X and XII Board examinations to help them go through the question paper carefully.

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) introduced this system last year for schools under its purview. Now, a section of principals representing other streams have written to the Government, suggesting that the system be introduced for exams conducted by the State Board.

For examinations held between 10.30 a.m. and 1.30 p.m., the CBSE had said that students needed to report at the examination hall at 10 a.m. At 10.15 a.m., the question papers would be distributed and students could read it between 10.15 a.m. and 10.30 a.m. At 10.30 a.m., the bell would ring, signalling the start of the examination.

“The idea is to allow students to calm down and plan,” says president of the Principals Association of Matriculation and Higher Secondary Schools in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry N. Vijayan.
