experts who have prepared these question papers have certified that the entire syllabus of each subject into appropriate number of units and choosing equal number of questions from each unit. Further, in every set, each subject carries the same percentage of easy,medium and difficult questions.This ensures the same difficulty level of each set of question paper for this year 2014 also, as per practice of the Board in the year 2012 & 2013."

My View: As a teacher involved in JEE coaching my experience says that no two papers can't have 100% similar difficulty level. But as we say life never give equal chances so as the JEE. Better pray for good luck on your examination day.
ALL THE BEST!!!

Despite CBSE ban, coaching centres continue to run classes in schools

Even as the menace of fake admissions is growing in the city, schools affiliated with the CBSE continue to run the exclusive integrated school programme under the pretext of preparing students of IITs/JEEs as well as board exams despite the board's recent ban.
The programme, which schools run in association with local coaching centres, was banned by the board through its circular dated February 6, 2014, which stated that the arrangement lead to commercialisation of schools.
However, the practice continues to be rampant in many schools in the tricity.Students enrolled under this programme are assigned to separate sections in a school and are taught by teachers from coaching institutes. The latter teach them subjects like physics, chemistry and mathematics from 8 am to12 pm for the CBSE as well as competitive examinations, while subjects like English and physical education continue to be taught by members of the school faculty.
Fiitjee, a coaching centre in Sector 35, is having such an arrangement with Mount Carmel School, Sector 47 for the past several years.
When contacted, the school's principal, Charles Samuel, denied such practices commercialised schools. "I feel this integrated arrangement is far better than the dummy school culture that is prevalent in the city. In the integrated arrangement students don't skip school and yet continue to prepare for entrance exams. The school charges its standard fees while the coaching centre charges the student separately," he said.
However, when asked about theCBSE circular, Samuel said the school cannot go against the board's instructions. "We'll get in touch with the board - if it says the arrangement can't be continued we'll end it," he added.
AK Vidyamandir, a coaching centre in Sector 34, has a similar arrangement with Guru Nanak Public School, Sector 36 (GNPS-36 ) and SGGS Collegiate Public School, Sector-26 (SGGS-26), according to Tarun Sharma, an official at the centre. When contracted, GNPS-36 principal Gurnam Grewal said the school only provided a room to the coaching centre to hold their classes so that students. "This arrangement will be ended from the next session," she said.
SGGS-26 Jot Singh also claimed while the coaching centre had conducted such classes in the past the school no longer had a tieup with it. Another coaching institute, Lakshya, has been promoting its integrated programme at Doon International School, SAS Nagar and Bhavan Vidyalaya, Panchkula.
When contacted, Lakshya's business development officer Ramneesh Pal stated its plan to start the programme in schools were on hold due to the board's recent direction.
Bhavan Vidyalaya school principal Shashi Banarjee, when contacted, said the school had thought of introducing the programme after requests made by parents to ensure "some good coaching within the school premises." "But after the board's recent instructions a decision on the matter has been put on hold. The school will now take the appropriate steps as per the CBSE's affiliation rules," she said.
Official speak….A school cannot allow a private coaching institute to hold classes on the former's premises. If schools continue to do so they are clearly flouting rules. We will stock of the situation soon.-RJ Khanderao, regional director, CBSE

What CBSE says in its circular?
Holding classes of coaching institutions on school premises under the pretext of providing coaching to students for various entrance examinations is not approved by the board. Some schools are running such a programme by calling it an "integrated school programme" to teach the CBSE syllabus as well as help prepare students for various entrance examinations, thereby misleading the students and their parents. The premises of CBSE affiliated schools should not be used for any commercial activity. Every school should devote a minimum number of periods for teaching various subjects as per the syllabi and course prescribed by the board. No coaching or parallel classes that affect a school's regular timetable or diverts the focus of students from regular course of study should be held in the school.

CBSE PHYSICS Re-Examination Likely after alleged leekage is proved


The three sets of Physics question paper, which were uploaded on Hueiyen Lanpao's website as "leaked out" question paper for today's All India Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (AISSCE)-2014 conducted by Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), have all turned out to be the exact question paper for the examination, thus clearing the doubts over this leakage.

The Physics paper of AISSCE carries a total of 100 marks including 30 marks for practical.

It was reported that the "leaked" question paper for Physics was sold for Rs.3000 to 5000 in the State.

The question papers were found available two/three days ahead of the examination.

The "leaked" question papers were also uploaded on social networking sites and popular web portals for the public to ascertain the fact.

Many responses came within few hours of the upload.

Most people decried the leakage while few of them considered the question papers to be fake.

As the examination for Physics paper was also held at various examination centres in the State, many students including their parents rang up the office of Hueiyen Lanpao confirming the "question leakage" .

One person from Guwahati, who had seen the "leaked" question papers on Facebook, said that all three sets of Physics question paper came in the examination.

Some people claiming to be Imphal-based officials of CBSE came to Hueiyen Lanpao office asking for the original hard copies of the "leaked" Physics question paper.

But, their request was not entertained.

Another student called up the Hueiyen Lanpao office asking whether the question paper for Chemistry was available, and requested to upload the same if available like in the case of Physics.

When Hueiyen Lanpao contacted the CBSE officials in New Delhi on telephone, a lady replied that nothing could be said at the moment as the matter was being discussed by a high level committee of the CBSE.

Any development in the case would be uploaded on CBSE's websites, www.cbse.nic.in and www.cbse.gov.in. However, both websites of CBSE remained inaccessible till the time of filing this report.

Unfortunately, the website of Hueiyen Lanapao "www.hueiyenlanpao.com" also crashed possibly due to huge internet traffic in the aftermath of the expose.

However, engineers have been put into tasks to fix the problem.

Many students' bodies and other organizations have started condemning the 'leakage' and demanded the authorities concerned to look into the scam and conduct reexamination at the earliest.

They also urged the authorities to bust the question racketeers and ensure proper conduct of CBSE examinations in the State.
