Bhubaneswar, Oct 17:
Stung badly by the public outrage over gross mismanagement of the annual Plus Two examinations last year, the Odisha government today formed a fact-finding team that would suggest measures for smooth conduct of the examinations in March next year.
This was discussed at a review meeting here today.
It was decided that the committee would submit its report on how the examinations can be conducted in a trouble free manner to the Higher Education department within a month.
The committee, in its report, would recommend selection of examination centres, safety of question papers, changes in the syllabus and examination pattern, correct evaluation and change in the examination rules.
The department would take a final decision after reviewing the recommendations of the committee.
“The recommendations we would provide would be on the smooth conduct of the examinations from root level to the top level till the announcement of results. This is one aspect. We would also give our recommendations on changes in the syllabus to the department”, said Amulya Kumar Panda, chairman of the committee.
“The committee would give recommendations on preparation of a job-oriented syllabus and advance curriculum and examination systems for the students of Odisha after studying the state and national level syllabus and course pattern”, said Ajay Nayak, joint secretary, Higher Education.
