To ensure a smooth board exam process this year, the CBSE implemented a number of tech tools. They had to shift to online mode in the wake of the pandemic disruption. One of these tools was an online portal for schools to upload all the information about the candidates who showed up for the grades X and XII examinations. Other tools included various mobile applications to assist both teachers and students.
CBSE board exams have access to various comprehensive platforms
The boards split into two terms for this session. A multiple-choice online exam for Term I took place in November of last year, and Term II took place in May and June of 2022. Senior CBSE officials claim that important stakeholders now have access to Pariksha Sangam, a comprehensive platform for exam related operations. These stakeholders include schools, regional offices, and the central office.
Additionally, schools registered all IX and XI students online, where they could pay their fees and print their registration cards. Students can view and save their result through DigiLocker. The CBSE board also provides a 6-digit password to each student to maintain the confidentiality and privacy.
CBSE Term 1 was totally based on the tech for real
The board offered subject and student-specific OMR sheets for the online Term 1 examination. The schools had to download it beforehand. “On the OMR sheet, no candidate can fill out their personal information. A real-time OMR generation system was used and put into use”, stated the board.
For electronic surveillance, tracking, and monitoring of the centres, three “Confidential Material Tracking and Monitoring System” apps were created. The board also uses data forensics and modern data analytics to guarantee that the exams went as planned.
Board also develops a system for online dispute resolution. Students and schools could submit complaints through the portal, and CBSE would then settle them within a set time frame.
