The Council for the ISC Examinations, N.Delhi has revised the Syllabus for Std 11 & 12 in a manner to make it relevant to all competitive examinations like the: Pre-Medical test, IIT-JEE test, etc for admission to Medical and Engineering institutes/Colleges across the country. Major changes have been made in the Science and Mathematics syllabus. The syllabus has now been designed to meet the requirements and skills essential for competetive examinations in India and abroad and has been made student friendly.
In a staistical survey conducted by the daily - "The Hindu" in 2007 connected with admissions to professional courses ( medical and engineering, etc) showed that students who passed the ISC(+2) examination conducted by the Council for ISC Examinations, New Delhi fared much better than from other similar National or State Boards.
From 2013, single entrance test for IITs and NITs - Marks in Class XII Board examination will count
The joint entrance examination (JEE) for admission to the undergraduate engineering programmes will be held from the next academic year, with the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) managing a separate merit list for those aspiring to join them. The examination will also consider the marks obtained in Class XII Board examinations.
The entire process will consists of two exams - main and advanced - to be held on separate days. While the main exam will be conducted by the CBSE, the advanced exam that is likely to take place about a month after the main exam will be conducted by the IITs. The top 1.5 lakh students from the main exam merit list can take the advanced entrance exam. To be eligible for the IIT merit list the score of the advanced test as well as the condition that the aspirant is in the top 20 percentile of his/her board will be taken into account. The marks scored in the examinations of the Class XII Board or equivalent stream, normalised on a percentile basis, plus the marks obtained in the JEE-main test, with equal weightage, will be used by the IITs. Only a fixed number of candidates (five times the number of seats for admission in the IIT system or a pre-fixed cut-off) screened on the basis of merit, based on cumulative score, will be considered. The ranking for examination to undergraduate programmes in the IITs will be based on the performance in the JEE-advanced examination from among the candidates screened through this process.
For the other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTIs), there would be 40 per cent weightage for performance in Class XII, 30 per cent for JEE-main and 30 per cent for the JEE-advanced test and a combined merit decided accordingly. The JEE main test shall be a multiple choice objective-type paper, whereas the nature of the JEE advanced test will be determined by the JAB, which will also have complete control over academic matters. The Central Board of Secondary Education will give administrative support for the conduct of the examination.
According to the informal proposal, a student will have to be among the top 20 percentile holders of his/her respective board to be eligible for admission into IITs. Nearly 50,000 students would be selected in the first filter of the JEE-Main depending on their scores and on condition that they are among the top 20 percentile holders of their respective boards.Top 20 per cent students of each state board and advanced exam marks will be qualifying standard for preparing IIT merit list. To get admission into IITs, it's important that students score enough to be in top 20 per cent of their board (state, ICSE or CBSE) and also score well in main exam.
The percentile score of a student would be obtained by dividing the number of students below him or her with the number who appeared for the test, and then multiplying the ratio by 100.
TEACHERS - WOW !!!
Hats off to this (and all the other conscientious teachers like her). However, it would be good to remember that full parental involvement - since day one - in every aspect of a childs education is vital for the childs success. It would be a folly for parents who provide less than their share of responsibilities expecting all teachers to be as conscientious as this teacher in preparing a child to meet lifes challenges. -----
At an official function, the dinner guests were sitting around the table discussing life.
One man, a CEO, decided to explain the problem with education. He argued, "What's a kid going to learn from someone who decided his best option in life was to become a teacher?"
To stress his point he said to another guest; "You're a teacher, Sheela, Be honest. What do you make?"
Sheela, who had a reputation for honesty and frankness replied, "You want to know what I make? (She paused for a second, and then began...)
"Well, I make kids work harder than they ever thought they could.
I make a C+ feel like the Congressional Medal of Honor winner.
I make kids sit through 40 minutes of class time when their parents CAN'T make them sit for 5 without an I Pod, Game Cube or movie rental.
You want to know what I make? (She paused again and looked at each and every person at the table)
I make kids wonder. I make them question.
I make them apologize and mean it. I make them have respect and take responsibility for their actions.
I teach them to write and then I make them write. Keyboarding ISN'T EVERYTHING.
I make them read, read, read.
I make them show all their work in maths. They use their God given brain, not the man-made calculator.
I make my students from other countries learn everything they need to know about English while preserving their unique cultural identity.
I make my classroom a place where all my students feel safe.
Finally, I make them understand that if they use the gifts they were given, work hard, and follow their hearts, they can succeed in life (Sheela paused one last time and then continued.)
Then, when people try to judge me by what I make, with me knowing money isn't everything, I can hold my head up high and pay no attention because they are ignorant.
You want to know what I make. I MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
What do you make Mr. CEO? His jaw dropped, he went silent.
