Semester System for XII Students - GSEB

by Bhavna Sharma

Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Board, GSHSEB or GSEB, has been working towards reducing the burden of studying a huge syllabus for the board exams. Students, especially from the science stream, would now be studying in a semester system, starting from class XI.

Change in HSC Exam Pattern

Gujarat Board follows a system of percentile scoring for HSC students. From 2011-2012, the board had decided to introduce a semester system for the science stream candidates in higher secondary certificate exams. Using this system, the board aims at evenly distributing the burden over two years of study. This will reduce the number of chapters for each examination, thus making it easier for candidates to score well.

Key features of this system would be:

  • Final percentage will be calculated as an average of the consolidated score of four semesters.
  • 4 semesters will be conducted over a span of two years, i.e., class XI & XII.
  • Out of the four exams, first and third semesters will be conducted as per the OMR method. All questions would be objective type and the papers will be checked using OMR machine.
  • Second and fourth semester exams will be conducted as subjective papers, as all other school exams.
  • Each semester will carry an equal weightage of 25 percent.
  • Marks will be declared as percentiles instead of percentages.

In a statement in early 2010, state's education minister Ramanlal Vora had said, "This system will allow them to be better equipped for competitive exams as well." "We have cleared these decisions as they promise to reduce stress levels and pressure associated with board exams. This will also ensure less dropout from schools after SSC." Added Mr. Hasmukh Adhia, Principal secretary - education.

Change in SSC Exam Pattern

For class X students, the board will be introducing a grading system, wherein candidates will score in grades ranging from A1 to E2 instead of regular percentage marks. Students scoring below D grade will be considered as 'failed' and will not be allowed admission in class XI. Students will have to take the board exams only for 5 main subjects. For other two electives, students will have to appear for an in-school exam.

Board's measures have been targeted to reduce the stress and pressure associated with the board exams. The idea is to make it easier for the students to perform and score well, while retaining the competitive spirit. The system will be helpful in strengthening the important concepts and will instill a sense of discipline and habit of regular study among the students. Hopefully, candidates and parents, alike, will understand the purpose behind it and will welcome the board's decision.

    For the benefit of relatives government is changing exam pattern frequently and ultimately students are suffered. The system which was available Long back about 25 years was equally good. And people were happy. There was no burdon at all. Or if you want to change the system, give admission to all people where they want… but make qualifying exams very tough so that those who are genious, they can get engineering / medical degrees. No question of entrance test… just like AMIE / Microsoft Certified Exams…
