The Council of Higher Secondary Education (CHSE) is likely to make changes in the schedule for the Plus 2 Science board examinations 2022.
Odisha School and Mass Education Minister Samir Ranjan Dash informed about the possibility of revising the schedule in an interaction with reporters today.
According to Dash, a proposal has been sent to the CHSE to make some changes in the exam timetable following objections from students over unavailability of adequate time period between exams of two papers.
“Preparations are on for the smooth conduct of the Plus 2 examination. As there is just a single day gap for the mathematics paper, many students have requested to change the schedule so that they can get more time for preparation. I have asked the CHSE to look into the matter and if possible, necessary steps will be taken in this regard,” Dash said.
“Students of 1586 colleges will appear the annual Plus-2 board exams this year. The exams will be conducted in 1148 centres across the State. CCTVs will be installed in every exam centre,” the Minister added.
As per the CHSE’s previous notification, the annual Plus 2 board exams will be conducted in offline mode and there will be one sitting everyday starting from 9 am. More than 3.2 lakh students in Arts, Science, Commerce and Vocational streams are expected to appear for the exams.
All practical exams will be conducted internally by the Higher Secondary Schools with their own teachers. Weightage of 20 per cent in both theory and practicals will be given from the performance of the students in quarter-end exams which were conducted by the schools internally.
