After completing the three hours long examination, they will have a break on lunch time for 30 minutes and for the next three hours, they will be writing down the model answers and evaluation scheme depicting how to assign marks. Only a very few students of Madhya Pradesh secure marks as high as 90%, the cut-off for many institutions. Hence, they lag behind in competition from students of other states.
The State Academic Co-ordinator of Directorate of Public Instructions P.R Tiwari, said that the self-evaluation will make students aware where they score less after assessing their own answers and knowing how the marks are given. The teachers are to re-evaluate the sheets and the marks given by them will be the final scores. Students will use red ink while teachers will use green ink for marking.
This practice will be repeated thrice before the board examinations. At the time of their final exams, it is hoped that students would have got a complete idea of examinations, marking scheme and prepared themselves accordingly. However, few teachers are against this move saying that it will require students to stay in the school for a long period during exams due to which they will have a very short time to get prepared for the next day exam.
What do you think about this scheme? Will it make students more sharper to attend their exams? Is it a positive approach towards students or will it effect the examinations further?
