|No dissection for BiPC this year on
Hyderabad,Nov 12 Intermediate science students appearing for practical exams this year need not do dissection of earthworms, cockroaches, frogs and so on from this year onwards.
The Board of Intermediate Education has decided to abolish dissection as directed by the Union Environment Ministry and the University Grants Commission. Intermediate practical exams are scheduled from the first week of February 2014.
Dissection has been an integral part of the exam for second year BiPC students. Now, they will have to draw the parts of insects and identify the parts exhibited through slides on the display board, as the environment ministry believes dissection to be a cruel practice.
The practicals still carry 30 marks. Earlier, 5 marks were awarded for dissection and another 5 marks for drawing and identification of parts of the insect.
Under the new system, 6 marks will be awarded for drawing, 14 marks for identifying the parts displayed through slides, 5 marks for record book writing and 5 marks for practicals.
“Orders with regard to doing away with dissection in practical exams will be issued soon. There is shortage of cockroaches and earthworms. It has also become a problem for colleges to obtain them for practicals. Moreover, the Centre had issued guidelines abolishing dissection,” said Rama Sankar Naik, secretary, BIE.
The board has also decided to introduce modern pedagogical tools in colleges such as computer-based multimedia simulators, virtual labs, specialised interactive CDROMs, films, charts and videos of dissections performed by experts.

|Inter Admission process more than 50,000 add up this year
Hyderabad,Sep 14 The admission process for first year Intermediate courses has ended after five extensions of last date. The total number of students enrolled both in government and private junior colleges this year was 9.51 lakhs, which is 50,000 more than last year. This means, if students of outside study are also included, more than 10 lakh students would appear for annual exams to be held in April 2014.
A total of 88.08 per cent of students in regular category have passed in the exams registering a 0.24 percent increase compared to last year (87.84%). Government schools have recorded an impressive 80.28 pass percentage and the schools which function under various government departments like Zilla parishad, Municipal, Social, Tribal welfare, Gurukul etc have also performed quite well compared to last few years. Private schools too fared well with 92.69 percentage. In addition, 51.49% of candidates of those who appeared for the SSC Advanced Supplementary Examinations have also passed. All this contributed to increase in admissions into first year Intermediate.
There was a marked increase in the admissions under science and commerce streams this year where as for Arts subjects, there was not much progress, compared to last year.
But academics take a big jolt as staff of almost all government junior colleges and majority of private junior colleges in 13 seemandhra districts have been on strike for the past 31 days against the decision to divide the state. The fresh students could not even attend for classes for a week when the agitations started.”This is bound to affect their studies in a big way as Intermediate is turning point in anybody’s career. There were no classes, no practicals” Janakirama Kolluru, a senior faculty of St. Mary College in Visakhapatnam told The Hans India.
The revised syllabus was enforced from this year in full measure in both first and second year and students do need the help of lecturers. “They will be way behind the students of Class XI and Class XII of CBSE syllabus if they don’t follow the new syllabi. Eventually, it would have a telling effect on the results of national level exams at the end of senior Inter i.e. 2015” Dr V R Muralikrishna, a faculty at Narayana College said.
The competition will also be more in the next two years with the increase in number of students- especially for tech courses. The CBSE has given only a one time waiver this year for students of Andhra Pradesh with regard to computing plus two marks while making final merit lists of JEE Mains since the syllabus was not revised in the state at that time. From 2014 onwards, the marks of both first and second year Intermediate would be taken into account while calculating the weightage marks.
|Separate ranks for Inter Supplementary
Hyderabad,Jul 26 The Eamcet Committee has announced separate ranks for all those who have passed both in the entrance test and Intermediate Advanced Supplementary Examinations in Hyderabad on 24th July. A total of 20,779 fresh rankers have now being added up in addition to earlier ones. Students can download their ranks from the EAMCET website.
Out of these 20,779, as many as 16,363 were of engineering stream and the remaining 4,416 belonged to medical stream. “All these students will have separate ranks and have nothing to do with the regular rankers i.e. no addition with points which was thought of earlier,” Prof. N.V. Ramanarao, the Convener of Eamcet said.
A total of 2,76,995 students have appeared for Eamcet engineering and out of them 2,01,308 candidates were qualified. The Advance Supplementary students were now allotted ranks from 2,01,309 to 2,17,672.
Similarly in medical and agricultural stream, a total of 80,779 students were qualified. The Supplementary candidates were allotted ranks from 80,780 to 85,195.
These supplementary students will be allowed to participate from the first phase of engineering counselling onwards, Prof Ramana Rao, told The Hans India. But he made it clear that their turn would commence only after the regular students’ counselling. Since medical counselling has already started, the students can participate depending upon their rank and choice, he added.

|Inter improvement exam tomorrow
Hyderabad,May 21 The weightage for Intermediate marks in JEE (Main) and JEE (Advanced) has led to a huge rush to appear for improvement exams this year with over 3.29 lakh Inter first-year students applying. Supplementary exams will begin on May 22.
More than 10.13 lakh students have registered for supplementary exams this year, including first and second year students. Of them, 6.89 lakh are first year and 3.24 lakh are second-year students.

|Demand goes up for polytechnic
Vijayawada,Apr 23 Guaranteed opportunities in campus placement drives and feasibility to take up engineering after the course completion has made the polytechnic diploma courses the best alternative for the Class X students besides the regular Intermediate course.
The demand for the three-year diploma courses in polytechnic is increasing year after year as a majority of the industries offer jobs, especially in civil, mechanical and computer departments. It was once the most chosen course by the rural students but now the students from urban areas are also opting for it as there are vast opportunities in the industries that seek skill-based students with real-time industry knowledge.
Ch. Clinton, a polytechnic second year student, said that they are given industry-based training in this course as per the curriculum and the student has to develop personal skills and soft skills so that getting selected in national companies in the campus drives would be easy.
In-charge principal of Government Polytechnic College, Vijayawada, G. Sai Prasad Raju, said that there is a lot of demand for the course now. They received more than 6,000 applications so far from the district itself and the number would increase by the last date for submission of applications. The college registered 100 per cent placements in mechanical department and highest placements in civil departments last year.
The feasibility of joining engineering second year directly after the completion of polytechnic diploma in respective streams is also making students opt for polytechnic. Every engineering department in all the engineering colleges admits a maximum of eight polytechnic diploma holders through E-cet as lateral entry. Also, observing the demand for polytechnic courses many private colleges are coming up with different industry-oriented courses.

|SSLC exam starts with easy but lengthy language papers
Bangalore,Apr 2 Over 8.49 lakh Class 10 students appeared for the first language paper when the SSLC exams began in the State on Monday. A large number of parents were also found waiting outside the exam centres in the city to provide moral support to the students.
Most students that The Hindu spoke to mentioned that the language papers were easy but extremely lengthy. Abhishek N., a student of the Old Fort High School, who appeared for the Kannada exam, said, “The paper was easy. However, there were some tricky and unexpected questions in the grammar section.”
Another student, Ranjitha S., who took the Tamil paper, said, “As this is my first board exam, I was extremely tensed during the first 15 minutes. But later it was just like any another exam and it was an easy paper as I had prepared well.”
Some teachers also came to the exam centres where their students were taking the exams to encourage them. H.D. Mujawar, an Urdu teacher, said, “Most students I spoke to said that the paper was easy. But as the language paper is generally for 125 marks, they are lengthy.”
The next paper, including science, Indian political science and music papers (Hindustani/ Carnatic), will be conducted on Wednesday.
As many as 14 students have been debarred for indulging in malpractices during the exam on Monday in the State. A majority of the students, 10, were from Kolar district. Of the rest, two from Raichur and one each from Bijapur and Chickaballapur districts.
Speaking to The Hindu, Director of Karnataka Secondary Education and Examination Board (KSEEB) D. Venkateshiah said, “Depending on the nature of malpractice, we will decide for how many years they will remain debarred.”
Mr. Venkateshiah said that an invigilator in the Government High School, Kamalanagar village, Aland taluk, Gulbarga district, was suspended by the Deputy Director of Public Instruction for negligence during invigilation as one student had walked away in the middle of the exam with the answer paper.

|Engineering spot admissions from Nov. 5
Hyderabad,Oct 27 Over one lakh vacant seats will be available for spot admissions in engineering and pharmacy colleges to be held from November 5 to 20.
Details of vacancies will be displayed on ‘http://apeamcet.nic.in’ for the convenience of the candidates by 6 p.m. on November 5. Students, who wish to cancel the present allotment have to approach the Help Line Centres before November 2 and thereafter for any cancellation, candidates have to approach the college where they have been allotted a seat. Whether the colleges will insist on payment of the full fee to give its consent or charge some penal fee will be an issue students have to deal with. Officials, however, said that unless colleges give permission, seats will not be cancelled as students are now their property. Observers will also be deputed in colleges wherever it is felt necessary to ensure that transparency and merit are being followed. Some top colleges also have vacancies arising out of the internal sliding, and majority of the students will be eyeing those seats. In few top colleges, seats are vacant in new branches that are not so popular with students.
However, officials expect poor response to the process as candidates have to first cancel their admission in the allotted college and then apply for spot admissions in individual colleges. There is a likelihood of admission being lost if candidates don’t get a seat during spot admissions to be done as per merit.
The Admissions Camp Officer, K. Raghunath said that in respect of “single digit” admission colleges, permission has been given to adjust the candidates in other colleges. In such cases, both the colleges have to submit the “No Objection Certificate” (NOC) and also representations from the candidates to that effect. Such admissions made will be approved by the Convenor after a thorough check only.
Meanwhile, confusion prevails over whether fee reimbursement scheme would be applicable for candidates admitted during spot admissions. Though the Deputy Chief Minister, Damodar Rajanarsimha has assured to look into the issue, officials made it clear that they got instructions to go ahead with the process as per last year. An official said that candidates who are admitted now with the fee reimbursement benefit will be denied the same if they move to a new college during spot admissions.

Two thousand nine hundred and seventy seven students would appear for Intermediate second year exams in open school system and 1,540 students would appear for SSC supplementary exams to be held by the Open School Society in Kadapa district from October 16 to 26, Collector V.

|Score well in Languages too for IIT seat
Hyderabad,Oct 6 Not just in maths and science, but students will need good marks in languages too to get into the prestigious IITs, NITs and other top engineering institutes.
The Central Board of Secondary Education, which has been entrusted the responsibility of conducting the JEE (Main) and JEE (Advanced) in 2013, will include the marks obtained in languages when it gives 40 per cent weightage to 10+2 Board exam marks.
There has been no weightage for 10+2 Board exam marks secured in any subject while giving ranks in IIT-JEE and AIEEE all these years. However, the state government has been giving 25 per cent weightage for 10+2 marks in Eamcet minus languages since 2009. Since the state government has been giving 25 per cent weightage for 10+2 marks in Eamcet minus languages since 2009, students were neglecting languages right from secondary school level and focusing only on maths and science with an eye on cracking the entrance tests to gain entry into prestigious engineering colleges.
In a way, the weightage given for languages in JEE (Main) will play a decisive role in determining the chances of candidates making it to the JEE (Advanced) eligibility list as they have to figure in the list of top 1,50,000 rankers.
Though 10+2 students opt for languages such as English, Hindi, Sanskrit etc, they do so just for the sake of complying with the Board of Intermediate Education norms. Many of them try to manage with pass marks in languages in Board exams, while some try for first class marks to ensure a first division in their certificates as there was no weightage for 10+2 marks in any subjects in IIT-JEE, AIEEE so far and the 25 per cent weightage for 10+2 marks in Eamcet was confined to only math and science subjects.
The new initiative has been welcomed by teachers, students and parents, who hope it will encourage students to take languages seriously, but students say they should have been informed about this well in advance when they took admission in 10+2 courses last academic year (2011-12).
These students already completed first year of their course and completed more than half of the final year's syllabus so far. Students manage just pass marks Though 10+2 students opt for languages such as English, Hindi, Sanskrit etc, they do so just for the sake of complying with the Board of Intermediate Education norms. Many of them try to manage with pass marks in languages in Board exams.

|Hold physics exam again: HC tells BIE
Hyderabad,May 28 Responding to a clutch of petitions filed by students who have charged the Board of Intermediate Education (BIE) with gross negligence,justice B Chandra Kumar of the high court on Friday directed that the physics paper-II supplementary exam be conducted again for those students who paid the fee but did not manage to obtain hall tickets. This exercise should be completed as early as possible,the judge said. The judge also ordered BIE to declare results in time for the students to be able to apply to institutes like IIT and BITS.
He,however,directed the board to issue a separate schedule for the students who could not write the exam on May 16 due to delay in the dispatch of hall tickets.
It is made clear that students and their parents should not be made to suffer for no fault of theirs.
Hence,the BIE is hereby directed to consider their case sympathetically and conduct re-examination for physics paper-II, ruled the judge.
Thousands of students from all over the state could not write their physics supplementary test on May 16 due to non-issuance of hall tickets.
The students contended that they failed to appear for the physics paper on May 16 despite having paid fees in time at their respective colleges and demanded that the physics examination be held again.
Also on Friday,justice Chandra Kumar directed authorities to restore the police cover to YSR Congress leader Bhooma Nagi Reddy.
The judge found fault with the officials for having taken an unilateral decision in the matter.

|Inter hall-tickets for all eligible students
Hyderabad,May 17 Students who have paid fee within the stipulated time but could not upload their applications for the Intermediate supplementary examinations will get their hall-tickets if they provide a proof of their fee payment.
A decision on this was taken by the BIE after it received orders from the High Court asking it to consider allowing students who paid the fee on time. BIE Secretary M. Subrahmanyam said that the board received the orders at 3.30 p.m. based on which all colleges were asked to present the forms along with proof of fee payment. “Hall-tickets will be issued to all such candidates and they can write the remaining examinations,” he said. However, some candidates missed the Physics examination as the court orders came much after the examination began.
Meanwhile, nearly 95 per cent of students who applied for the physics exam took the test. Out of the 3,19,834 second year candidates who applied only 16,750 remained absent. In the first year paper 17,226 remained absent among the 3,00,550 applicants.
The second year physics paper, which led to this whole confusion and uncertainty being branded as the ‘toughest' ever in the March examinations, was relatively easy this time. Teachers claimed that two questions were erroneous in the Telugu medium paper and these were Question no 13 in the four marks questions and Questions no 19 in eight marks questions. The same questions in English medium were different and this would have confused students, claimed P. Madhusudhan Reddy, general secretary, A.P. Government Junior Lecturer's Association. Moreover, more questions were given related to problems. Majority students felt that the paper was easy and on expected lines.

|Supplementary Exam not free of errors
Hyderabad,May 17 The Board of Intermediate Education has decided to issue hall tickets to all students immediately in view of the Andhra Pradesh High Court’s orders after around 20,000 students missed Day 1 of the supplementary exams on Wednesday due to lack of hall tickets. This will enable students to appear for the remaining exams from Thursday.
Many students and parents, however, questioned the decision as thousands of students could not appear for the first day of the exams. They demanded that the physics exam be re-conducted. The students and parents pointed out that Day 1 was crucial since it was the day for the physics exam in which over 31 per cent students had failed and many had got low marks.
Nearly three lakh senior Intermediate students had applied for the physics exam to improve their score while another 1.5 lakh failed students had also applied to clear the paper. Nearly 20,000 of these students missed the exam as the hall tickets had not been issued by then. Tension prevailed at several examination centres in the city and other districts on Wednesday when students and parents asked for hall tickets and demanded that the students be allowed to appear for the exams.
However, the officials denied permission saying that they had no orders to do so. Two errors were reported in second year physics question paper in Telugu. Question No.s 13 and 14 were the same About 17,226 students missed out on the first year physics supplementary exam which was conducted on Wednesday, out of a total of 3,00,550 registered candidates while 16,750 out of a total of 3,19,834 registered for the second year exam were also absent.
This was because hall tickets had not been issued to all the students. Thirty students were booked for malpractice during the exams. Meanwhile, two errors were reported in the second year physics question paper in Telugu. Question Nos. 13 and 14 were the same and Question No. 19 was different for Telugu and English Medium students.
The Board of Intermediate Exam's offi cial release on Wednesday stated, “In view of the directions o the Honourable High Court, AP, in W.P. No 15174 dated 16-05-2012, the managements and princi pals of the junior colleges who have not uploaded data of the fees paid can didates for IPSE May 2012, are instructed to submit the nominal rolls along with fees paid chal lans immediately to obtain Hall Tickets from BIE.“

|Improvement Exam No Private tag for Inter-II Students
Hyderabad,May 15 The Board of Intermediate Education said on Monday that secondyear passed students appearing for “improvement” exams from May 16, will not be labelled “private candidates” and that no “star mark” will be printed on their marks memo as in the case of failed students. The BIE made it clear that these students would be issued pass certificates as “regular candidates”. Nearly 3 lakh secondyear students who applied for improvement exams, got a rude shock when they received hall tickets from the board labelling them “private” candidates.
Nearly 2.90 lakh students have applied for second-year physics improvement exam alone, after a large number of students failed in this subject, besides many who got low marks. The students and parents had protested that the poor performances were because of an “erroneous question paper”.
