Sisodia for suspending board exams after full roll out of NEP

Sisodia for suspending board exams after full roll out of NEP

New Delhi, Oct 22 (UNI) Delhi Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister Manish Sisodia on Thursday suggested that after the full roll out of the new National Education Policy (NEP), the board examination of classes 10 and 12 should discontinue.
Speaking at the 57th General Council meeting of NCERT, Mr Sisodia gave some important suggestions to realise the vision of NEP 2020, the Delhi Government said in a statement here.
He also gave inputs on the current academic session, which has been seriously disrupted due to the COVID-19 crisis.
Concurring with Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal 'Nishank' on 'transformative value of NEP 2020', Mr Sisodia said that 'transformation should be holistic and not piecemeal'.
Elaborating the point, he said, 'It is about time that we introduce muti-year stage wise classes and external assessment at the end of each stage, replacing the existing year wise classes and two board exams in classes 10 and 12.'
Mr Sisodia pointed out that the 5+3+3+4 model recommended in the NEP can attain its full potential, if the existing one year per grade system is removed.
It means instead of the existing class system, where all children of a class move together in all subjects, despite being at different learning levels, the multi-year stage will help them move as per their learning need in different subjects, at their own pace, said the Minister.
He added that a stage-wise curriculum with a clearly stated learning goal in terms of knowledge, skills
and values be created.
Going by the logic of the stage, Mr Sisodia said that after the full roll out of NEP, board exams of classes 10 and 12 should also discontinue.
