It stated that schools and colleges can make use of the questions given in the ‘question bank’ to prepare the test items for the mid-term examination.

“Before the midterm is conducted, the school may send some questions to the students to familiarise them but the whole set of questions in the question bank should not be sent to them,” it stated.

Schools and colleges, while working on the questions, should ensure that the teacher prepares the questions (to be sent in batch-wise) as per the design of the question paper, it added.

It notified that the mid-term examination shall be conducted for the full allotted marks in each subject, and stated that the submission of results will be only on the external examination marks.

The board, while encouraging schools and colleges with online facilities to conduct the mid-term examination through such facility, stated that educational institutions that not have the online facilities can give out typed questions, photocopy it and distribute among the students.

The notification stated that no routine for this mid-term examination should be fixed or given out and added, “the institution is at liberty to conduct it for as many days, so long the results of the mid-term examination reaches the board by October 31, 2020”.
