Bhubaneswar: The Board of Secondary Education (BSE), Odisha on Thursday announced the dates for Class X Summative Assessment-2 examinations.

Addressing a presser at the BSE office in Cuttack, BSE President Ramashis Hajra informed that the summative 2 examinations for Class X students will be held from March 10 to March 17.

The centres for the exam and nodal centres will remain the same as during Summative Assessment-1, he added. While the question papers will be kept at the nodal centers, they will be sent to the exam centers on the examination morning.

Exams will be held from 10 am to 12 noon. Candiates will have to reach at centre by 9 am on the first day and at 9.30 am on the following days. An additional period of time will be provided for Maths paper.

Similarly, practical exams for the vocational trade will be held from February 15 to February 22. Externals will be deployed to conduct the practical exams in their respective educational institutions. The marks will be uploaded on the official website of BSE.

The practical exams for State Open School Certificate (SOSC), TLV theory (for specially-abled candidates only), and visual arts will be held in the exam centers.

The pattern of questions for all categories of students regular, ex-regular, madhayama, high school, and state open will remain the same as it was in the SA-1 exam. The question paper will cover 100% of the syllabus.

BSE Vice President Nihar Ranjan Mohanty said that the formative assessment (FA)-4 is currently underway at schools and will end by second week of February following which the results will be uploaded online along with the marks of FA-3 between February 15- 22.

“Those who had filled up the form for SA-1 can apply for SA-2 this year. The students who have not appeared for SA-1 even after submitting the forms, can also apply for final exam,” Mohanty said. However, a candidate will not be eligible to fill out the form for matric exam in case of failure during SA-1 form fill-up.

Notably, the board exam result is likely to be published by the last week of March as the next academic session 2023-24 will begin in April. “We will be following the academic pattern like it was before the COVID pandemic,” said Mohanty.
