With the summative examinations of classes IX and X for the second term round the corner, a number of queries are being received by CBSE from teachers and students relating mainly to syllabus for assessment, type of questions in the Question paper etc. While most of the queries have been replied, the following is reiterated for information:
The syllabus for Summative assessment II whether conducted by CBSE or by schools will remain the same as issued by CBSE in the months of March to May 2010.
The students will only be examined on the syllabus in different subjects prescribed for Second Term.
The Question paper will be based on the designs of the question papers which have been posted on the Board’s website www.cbse.nic.in under Examinations section -> Sample Question Papers for Class IX and X for Term II (Second Term March 2011). You can get these papers from download section of http://mycbseguide.com too.
Kindly advise your students to refer to the website for question paper design, sample question papers and their marking schemes for various subjects at secondary level.
The printed copies of Sample Question Papers will also be very shortly available in the CBSE Publication stores.
As heads of institutions it may be desirable to ensure a vibrant joyful learning environment in your schools. Advise your students to concentrate well on their studies as there is still plenty of time available for preparations. Rather than pressurizing students to study only for tests, the teaching learning process in your school should have plenty of space for various activities suggested in the formative assessment manuals brought out by the Board in different subjects at secondary level.
Please ensure that your students are also participating in a balanced manner in co curricular activities for inculcation of right attitudes, values and life skills so essential for facing life challenges in future. This will help in reducing stress amongst the students.
Also watch out for important announcements, circulars and other relevant information continuously posted on the Board’s website. Refer to the Board’s website frequently to keep yourself updated.
Kindly interact frequently with your students, teachers and parents to dispel doubts and apprehensions on Examination and other issues of teaching learning process.
