NSEJS credibility at questions mark

IAPT के द्वारा आयोजित परीक्षा nsejs राजस्थान मे  विवादो से घिर गयी हैं। शुरू मे जारी किए नोटिफ़िकेशन मे इस परीक्षा को KVs मे करवाने को कहा गया था। किन्तु अंत समय पे परीक्षा केंद्र परिवर्तित कर दिये गए। नए परीक्षा केंद्र विभिन कोचिंग संस्थान के द्वारा आयोजित स्कूल्स को बना गया। ये ही नहीं इन परीक्षा केन्द्रो को उन कोचिंग संस्थान मे पढ़ने वाले बच्चो को केंद्र बनाया गया। परीक्षा केन्द्रो पे इन कोचिंग संस्थानो के officials ही परीक्षा को संचालित कर रहे थे।
कुछ मुख्य बिन्दु इस प्रकार हैं।
1 एलेन के students को कोटा मे  DDPS स्कूल सेंटर दिया गया। DDPS school ALLEN कोचिंग का है।
2 Resonance के students को कोटा मे DDGS स्कूल सेंटर दिया गया। DDGS school Resonance कोचिंग का है। यही हालत उदयपुर मे रही जहा resonance की कोचिंग जिस स्कूल मे चलती है उसी को सेंटर दिया गया।
3 इन परीक्षा केन्द्रो पे बच्चो के मोबाइल नंबर भी लिए गए। जो की IAPT की दिशा निर्देशों मे नहीं आता हैं।
IAPT क्यों नहीं इतने कम बच्चो के लिए तदस्थ परीक्षा केंद्र आयोजित कर पाया।

IAPT इस तरह परीक्षा को आयोजित करेगी तो इस परीक्षा की credibility पे ये बहुत बड़ा question mark होगा

Transparency in IESO

It is one of the most prestigious international Olympiads. India is participating in it since it was started. The OCSC camp for round 2nd was held from 13 May-30 May in Chennai by Geological Society of India. This year there were issues regarding the way camp was conducted in Chennai.

OCSC exam pattern & selection process for final round was not shared with the participants. The paper had questions with multiple answers & students could know about it only when they asked about it and by the time exam had already started. Instructions were not given on Question Paper. Even the marks were not disclosed & answer sheet was not shown to the students which generated a fair amount of doubt regarding four play in selections. In any selection process it is important that assessment should be done in transparent manner not disclosing the marks and not releasing the answer key raises eyebrows.

Such Practices are not suitable and don't match the expectations of the students for the exams or contests which are conducted at International Level.

Lack of transparency in the SCRA Exam

Special Class Railway Apprenctices' Examination (SCRA) is a very prestigious exam and SCRAs are selected through the Union Public Service Commission Examination conducted every year. At present, Special Class Railway Apprentices follow the four-year (8-semester) Mechanical Engineering Degree Course of Birla Institute of Technology Mesra, Ranchi.

At the successful completion of their course they are awarded the regular BE (Mech) Degree of BIT Mesra. There are limited numbers of seats available for candidates however the way candidates are shortlisted raises lot of questions about the exam.

In the recently declared result of SCRA written test the candidates’ marks are not declared and short listed candidates are supposed to appear for interview which is 200 marks. A final merit list will be prepared by totaling the written marks (600) and Interview marks (200). The problem lies with interview marks which are very subjective in nature and there seems a lot of scope for manipulation in the hands of interview panel. UPSC should get away with interview marks in order to bring complete transparency in the exam.

The sources informed that the statistical experts from ISI Kolkata through analysis of Class 12 marks of various boards have concluded that the marks scored across the boards can not be compared as there was hardly any correlation among the marks scored by the candidates from the various boards.
Hence, they have discarded normalization as well as any Percentile (Rank) based Scheme, as used in DST’s Innovation of Science Pursuit for Research (INSPIRE) which unlike JEE is not competitive.

Combining 12th standard marks in the selection merit will bring the same 100% cut-off fiasco as recently witnessed by DU, as there are many boards, which will start inflating their marks, in such a way so as to neutralize the normalization impact. There does not exist any effective mechanism to normalize the marks, as was witnessed in BITS Pilani, where there were 70% students from a single board despite the normalization.

An appeal to Mr Kapil Sibal to stop the blatant misuse of the word like “ National” and “Olympiad” by private bodies

National word should be used for the exam conducted by the government bodies. However these days observed that this word used by private bodies to meet their vested interest. There are lots of private bodies such as Science Olympiad Foundation. Unified Council and even private coaching which conduct various talent search examinations and used restrictive words like national, Olympiad

CBSE to publish AIEEE answer sheets online

From 2012, students appearing for AIEEE will be able to view his/her answer sheet on the official website a few days after the results are declared.

To ensure transparency in the examination system, Union ministry of human resource development has come up with an initiative of publishing answer sheets online. HRD has directed CBSE to make necessary arrangements for it.

Experts say that thousands of students reappear in the exam every year to score better marks. After assessing their answer sheets, students will be in a better position to evaluate their performance.

All India Engineering Entrance Exam (AIEEE) scheduled on April 29, 2012, will be conducted online.

This move has come after RTI was filled by Mr Nilesh Gupta a RTI activist responsible for bringing major transformation changes in education , AIEEE has never disclosed its official answer key and kept the students in dark for so many years,
CBSE in order to avoid and further embarrassment of CIC has decided to go ahead with move
