Plus II Exams Cancelled: Odisha Expert Panel To Plan Alternative Evaluation Method

Bhubaneswar: The Odisha government will soon form an expert committee to decide the modality for alternative evaluation of the cancelled Plus II exams, School and Mass Education Minister Samir Ranjan Dash said on Saturday.

The announcement came a day after the government cancelled the annual exams due to the COVID-19 situation.

The minister told the media that Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has given the directive for the constitution of the expert committee.

“As the Supreme Court has directed CBSE and CISCE to finalize the mode of evaluation within 15 days, an expert committee will be formed within 15 days to finalize common evaluation criteria after reviewing the evaluation methods of CBSE and CISCE,” Dash added.

However, an alternative evaluation method in Odisha is problematic as no internal test for Plus II second-year students have been conducted and most of the Plus II colleges in the state have not conducted any exam for first-year students.

Asked about this, the minister clarified that the expert committee will look into these aspects before finalizing the evaluation method.

“After the expert committee submits its final report, we will immediately execute its recommendations and try to announce the results as early as possible so that our students will be able to participate in the national level entrance tests,” he said.
