Introduction of six (6) paper pattern in SSC Public Examinations


Continuous   and   Comprehensive    Evaluation   pattern   of examination   system   -  Introduction   of  six   (6)   paper   pattern   in   SSC  Public Examinations from  the AY 2022-23  onwards,  duly  amending  the G.O.Ms.No.  82, School Education  (Prog.II)  Department,  Dated:29-10-2015  - Orders 


 In  the  reference  1 read above,  Government  have introduced  Continuous and Comprehensive  Evaluation  (CCE) pattern  of examination  system for Classes VI to  X and  ordered that CCE  pattern  of  examination  system  for  class X in fullest extent should  be adopted from the AY 2016-17 onwards with  11 papers.

 2.        In  the  references  3"  and 4"  read above,  Government  have issued  orders to  conduct  SSC public  Examinations,  2021  and 2022  with  seven  paper  pattern to  reduce  the  strain  caused  to  the  students  due  to  COVID-19  pandemic,   in relaxation of the G.O 1 read above.

 3.        In the  reference  5"  read above,  the  Commissioner  of  School  Education, has stated  that,  the  Director,  SCERT submitted  report   on the  pros and cons of the examination system stating that, the (11)  paper system of examination was introduced  before  commencement  of  Continuous  Comprehensive    Evaluation system  in the  State.  Before  the  CCE system,  there  was a  practice  of evaluating the student in 4 unit tests and two terminal tests.  In  order  to test the student extensively,  public examinations for X class were conducted  with  11 papers and it  was  extended  to  class  IX  to  prepare  the  student  for  next  coming  public examination  system.  But,  after the  introduction  of CCE  system,  a  student  is being tested  continuously besides  (4)  Formative tests and two Terminal  tests. Hence,  there  is  no  need  to  test the  student  again  extensively  in  the  public examination.  The  CBSE conducts  examinations  only  one  paper  for  subject to minimize the  examination  stress.  Therefore,  SCERT has suggested  to conduct SSC Examinations  in  (6)  or  (7)  paper  system.  The  Commissioner  of  School Education,  while  submitting  the  report  of the  SCERT ,  has therefore,  requested the Government to issue  necessary orders in the  matter.

 4.       Government has a  policy to affiliate Government Schools with CBSE and prepare  the  first batch  of  students  to  write  the  CBSE  public  exam  in  the  AY 2024-25,   and  accordingly,  here  by  decided  to  align   with  CBSE  (6)   paper pattern.

 5.        Accordingly,   in  partial  modification  of the  orders  issued  in  the  G.O  1° read  above,  Government  hereby  order  to  introduce  six  (6)  paper  pattern  for SSC Public Examinations from  the AY 2022-23  on wards,  according  to which, Physical  Science  and  Biological  Sciences  shall  be  in  same  paper  and  answer scripts  shall  be distributed  separately,  and languages  and non-languages shall be assessed with  one single question  paper
