The salient features of the CBSE Proficiency Test 2011 are as follows:
a) Only those students are allowed to take the proposed test(s) who have applied through the schools and paid requisite fee.
b) A student will have to appear from the same city/place where his/ her school is located. The examination will be conducted in the same centre as it was for Class X/XII Board Examination.
c) Question Paper in every subject will carry 100 marks.
d) The timings of the test will be from 10.30 a.m. to 01.00 p.m. in each subject.
e) It will be a Paper?Pen Test. All questions will be of Multiple Choice type. A student will be required to mark the answers in a given OMR sheet with blue/black ball point pen only.
f) General guidelines, sample questions in every subject and information about overall design of the question paper are available on CBSE website. Please note that instead of Paper Pencil Test, as stated in the Guidelines, it will be a Paper?Pen Test. This important change may be brought to the notice of all students and parents.
g) The Board will issue Admit Card to every student appearing in the test. These Admit Cards will be made available at the respective schools in which a student was studying in class X. Also, the Roll No. of the student will remain the same as that of Secondary Examination.
h) The test in every subject will be based on classes IX?X CBSE syllabus.
i) Negative marks will be awarded for wrong answers in different subjects as per the general guidelines and sample questions for Proficiency Test. More than one answer indicated against a question will also be deemed as incorrect response and will be negatively marked.
j) Students appearing in the test will be issued a certificate by the Board indicating percentile rank.
h) The Roll Number to the students would remain the same as that of Class X Examination. There is a possibility that Roll numbers would not be in continuity and there would be certain gaps as all the students have not applied for the Proficiency Test. Accordingly, you may kindly make the seating arrangement. However, Admit Cards are being sent to the students through the school which has sponsored the students.
