Sources said ‘Ethics and Human Values’ and ‘Environmental Education’ exams which were taken in writing till last year would be assessed this year on the basis of assignments. The students would be given questions and asked to interact with their respective lecturers.
For the academic year 2020-21, the Board is planning to introduce a new assessment system. Last year the written Exams of ‘Ethics and Human Values’ and the ‘Environmental Education’ were held on January 28 and January 30 respectively. The sources say that the Board had sent its assignment proposal to the government authorities and shall announce it once it is approved by them. However, the students shall have to attend the practical exams in person. In view of the pandemic, the Board will not implement a jumbling system this year.
