To change the education scenario of the Delhi government schools, the Rajkiya Pratibha Vikas Vidyalayas (RPVV) have introduced monthly mock tests for class 11 and class 12 students. This will prepare them for competitive exams such as NEET (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test) and JEE (Joint Entrance Examination).
As per the officials, the move is mainly to help students prepare for entrance exams for higher studies.
“The Class 11 and 12 students have to sit for the practice exams based on their stream. It is same as giving a competitive exam. Every month’s paper is based on the syllabus that has been completed,” said T P Singh, deputy education officer RPVV.
As per Singh, the exam paper will be prepared by a team of teachers and the examination shall be centralized in all the RPVVs. Students will be provided an OMR sheet to answer, similar to how it is done as a procedure.
“The results are also centrally prepared so students get to know their rankings. The test will help them assess their preparedness for the competitive exams,” he said.
