Amaravati: The Andhra Pradesh High Court on Thursday suspended the notification on the jumbling system for intermediate practical examinations. The court made it clear that intermediate practical examinations should be conducted in the colleges where the students are studying.
This came after a group of people approached the High Court against the jumbling system. After several arguments, the jumbling system was suspended.
After the court order, a new schedule for the practical exams will be released by the board of intermediate education soon. Earlier, practical examinations had been scheduled from 11-31 March.
What is the jumbling system?
Under the jumbling system, students from one college will take the practical examinations in another college (centre) allotted to them. Since all colleges do not have enough equipment, many students are likely to get low marks.
In the absence of the jumbling system, many colleges are likely to be given full marks even to students even if they do not perform well in the practical examinations. It is being said that the jumbling system might affect the students' marks in the intermediate exams, which will further have weightage in AP EAMCET and JEE entrance exams.
