ISC, ICSE to have centralised valuation system

The Council on Thursday also launched a new e-registration system enabling schools to register students online for the 2011 ICSE/ISC examinations. The e-registration will close on September 15, 2009.

“The list of schools where the centralised valuation would take place is being finalised,” Gerry Arathoon, Additional Secretary and Officiating Chief Executive of the Council, said here. Under the new system, it would be mandatory for schools to nominate at least one teacher for each subject (both at the ISC and ICSE levels) for which it would be presenting candidates for the March 2010 examinations. The teachers whom the schools nominate should have minimum three years of experience in the subject at the ISC/ICSE level. 

“The final selection of examiners will be made by the Council in October/November 2009,” Arathoon said.

The Council has advised  schools to grant duty leave to teachers selected for the valuation. These teachers will have to report for duty at the centralised marking centres in their respective cities from 10 am to 5 pm for a period of 10/15 days.

“The new e-registration system, which is a part of the examination reforms process, is designed to reduce errors and the time taken through a manual system. It is based on the fact that critical information on students is already available in some spreadsheet format in the school which needs to be copied into a Council template and uploaded into the Council database,” he said.

In addition, the data available with the Council has been transferred into the system so that schools will not have to re-enter the data that has already been provided.

Moreover, this system would decentralise the authority to the school to enable editing of the data till the closing of the registration. Schools can access detailed instructions from the Council portal through a specific user name.
