CBSE Exam Reforms by technology intervention

Class X and XII examinations conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will be ‘totally different’ starting next year and the examinations will be foolproof and secure, Anil Swarup, Secretary, Department of School Education and Literacy, informed on Monday.

To introduce the change in the examination process, the Union Ministry of Human Resource Development will adopt a new system relying heavily on technology.

In the wake of the leak of Class X Mathematics and Class XII Economics papers earlier this year, the MHRD had set up a high-powered committee led by VS Oberoi, Secretary, Higher Education, to examine the process by which the CBSE conducts the examinations.

“The report of the committee constituted by the MHRD department will come by Monday or Tuesday, which will not only examine the ways on how the leakage took place, but will also suggest measures on how to prevent such incidents in future. We will use technology to the best of our abilities to address the issue,” Swarup said on the sidelines of an interactive session organized by the Merchants’ Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Kolkata on Monday.

He further said that technology is going to play a very important role in schools in the remote areas or in cities.

“Increased use of technology can make CBSE exams foolproof from next year. Technology has the power to transform the society and can sort out existing problems in school education system,” he said.

The MHRD secretary, however, emphasized that no CBSE official was involved in the leak and that it was perpetrated by a handful of tech-savvy people.

“We get hundreds of mails and if our official gets a mail at 10:15 am about a leak, you cannot stop the examination to be held at 4,000 centres and inconvenience 11 lakh children,” he said.

“The CBSE is one of the most credible education systems in the country, for which the Supreme Court has assigned the responsibility upon it to conduct the NEET examinations,” he added.

The MHRD secretary urged all the trusts and chambers running schools to come together to form a board, which will give affiliation to schools and conduct examinations after getting a certification from the government, which will assess their standard.

“We allow any private entity to set up a board. Why don’t you set up a society or a board and implement such suggestions at the ground level in a handful of schools that will come under this board? Giving suggestions is one thing and doing it, in reality, is a different proposition altogether,” he said.
