Odisha: Plus II Board Exams In Offline Mode From This Date; Check The Assessment Scheme

Bhubaneswar: The annual Plus II examinations for Arts, Science, Commerce and Vocational streams in Odisha will begin on April 28.

The examination will be held in offline mode and in one sitting from 9 am in view of the possible heatwave conditions.

Over 3,20,000 students will appear for the examinations being conducted by the Council of Higher Secondary Education (CHSE). The practical exams will be conducted internally by the respective Higher Secondary Schools under the supervision of their own teachers, the department sources said.

The government in a statement announced some sympathetic steps to assess the student in view of the COVID-19 pandemic.

It said that 20% weightage in both theory and practicals will be given from the performance of the students in quarter-end examinations conducted by the schools internally. For this purpose, their best performance in the two of the three internals will be taken into account for evaluation.

Besides, every student will be assessed in two separate schemes in a paper – performance of the candidates based only on annual HSE and 80% weightage on the basis of performance in annual HSE and 20% weightage from the performance in quarter-end examinations.

The highest of the marks obtained by the students in the above two schemes will be the final mark in that paper. While calculating 20% weightage of quarter-end Examination and 80% weightage on annual examination, every fraction will be rounded off to the next whole number, it added.
