Srinagar, April 22: The examination pattern in all elementary schools in the Valley soon to be changed says the Government.
An order issued by State Institute of Education (SIE) yesterday said that, in schools attention is paid on the completion of syllabus which further leads to Non-development of learning objectives that eventually spoils the purpose of learning in students.
The order reads that they are focusing on the development of competencies in students from Classes I to VII like focusing on Four language skill, especially in English and Urdu and Oral test should become the part of Unit test Exams.
The officials said that T1 and T2 examination from Classes I to VII shall carry 50 marks.
They also said that, some model papers will be conducted in a short span of time to enhance the focusing on the question papers which will help students to understand question patterns.
The officials said in the examinations, minimum learning level and course content of the relevant class both will be carrying 50 per cent marks.
They added that, the officers on monitoring shall also focus on competencies rather than the amount of syllabus covered.
This issued raised when Education Department paid a surprise visit at Government Girls High School in Bemina last month and found all the teachers resting in the staffroom while more than 100 students were found sitting idle who could not solve the basic mathematic problems.
Resulting to this, the entire staff was suspended by the Department.
