School students who are thinking of preparing for the exam from guides, gossip papers, old is gold or other helpful materials available in the market will now get cheated.
It happens when the students of classes 8, 10 and 12 do not spend on purchasing such materials. The National Examination Board has adopted a standardized examination system. Due to this system, the questions asked once in the annual examination will not be asked for at least five years. Currently, questions are repeated like every year in the exam.
Chairman of the board, Dr. Mahashram Sharma, said that the trend of collecting old question papers available in the market and practicing and memorizing them based on that is being tried to end.
“The question paper asked once will not be repeated for at least five years,” he said. The traditional method of answering with a grunt no longer works.”
In the first phase, the board has implemented this system in mathematics, science and English of class 10 (SEE) from this year. It will be implemented in other classes next year. The board is preparing thousands of sets of question papers for this.
Those question papers were prepared by hundreds of teachers in the country. The question paper has also been tested. From that set, from the municipality to the board will prepare the question paper. The board claims that confidentiality will be maintained as access to the question paper will be limited to only a limited number of people.
He said that the graded examination system was introduced after the examinees started to become exam-oriented instead of developing their creative abilities by studying regularly in the classroom.
Chairman of the Board, Dr. Sharma, said that it is expected that this examination system will help the students to learn what they have learned after passing the various classes.
“Teachers should teach based on the syllabus and not on textbooks,” Sharma said.
During this, the board prepared easy, medium and difficult question papers. When the students were tested, it was found that difficult questions were not suitable for weak students and easy questions were not suitable for good students, so a moderate question paper was prepared.
It has been found that the marks given by different examiners for the same answer sheet in the school level examination are very low. The Board believes that the standardized examination system is suitable to reduce this gap.
“When examining the same answer sheet, the teachers found that there was a difference of up to 20 marks. It has also been seen that the marks given by the same teacher today and the marks given to him a few days later are different,” Vishnunarayan Shrestha, controller of examinations (class 10) of the board said, “Students are confused because of this difference. They are treated unfairly. A standardized examination system is seen to be appropriate to reduce this.”
Prada Prakashman Shrestha, an expert on the standardized examination system, said that this system would be very effective compared to the traditional way of conducting examinations and checking the answer sheets, but a lot of study should be done before implementing the system.
“A large number of model question papers should be prepared and tested on students. After analyzing it, a suitable question paper can be prepared,” he said. From Gorkhapatra daily
