Does Another Exam For Students Solve Their Dilemma

Is Another Exam For Students Needed?

The school and Board which conducted Class X examinations are still on and choosing a stream is adding to the anxiety of high school students. Will a proficiency test help to solve the dilemma of students and help them know where they stand when compared to their peers as projected by the board?

Not all schools think that the CBSE- conducted Proficiency Test can help. The Board has asked schools to send a list of candidates who would be taking the proficiency test for class X, but some institutions wonder if students need one more exam.

There are no takers at Chinmaya Vidyala, Taylors Road, as the majority of the students think that they have already made their choice of stream by the time the exam is conducted. The test, introduced by the CBSE last year, is scheduled to be held in July and is optional for students. April 14 is the last day for schools to make online submissions.

Some school heads say that “while students were quite excited last year, the first time test was held, they are unsure this time. Do we need one more exam? Let students take class XI and XII seriously, that's enough”. The proficiency test measures an individual's abilities and skills in a domain or subjected to know how well he/she has learned, understood and internalized related concepts and principles.

It is also said to be an important platform for parents to see which their child/ward would be better off in, rather than putting pressure on them. S.S.Nathan who is a CEO of Bala Vidya Mandir Group of School, which also holds an internal proficiency test that is mandatory for all Class X students says that “In the absence of a Board-based exam, it is essential to know the proficiency of a student and such an exam tests the aptitude of an individual at the national level, which is certainly helpful. But, this time more students are expected to take the proficiency test and based on the score of students they can also “upgrade to another stream”.
