Andhra Pradesh Board of Intermediate Education will be conducting the practical exams from 6th February, 2013. It is expected that the practical exams will be conducted in jumbling methods. Board of Intermediate conducts practical examinations for students in Botany, Zoology, Physics and Chemistry subjects. Practical exams are conducted for maximum marks of 30 and the duration of the exam will be three hours. Every year intermediate practical exams are held for the students in the same college in which the student is studying. Since two or three years, the government is planning to conduct the practical exams in jumbling method in which the students have to appear for their practical exams in other colleges. There have been objections from various corporate colleges and others for this proposal. High court of Andhra Pradesh also ordered the government to conduct practical exams in jumbling method. There are many colleges that do not pay any attention for conducting practical classes to intermediate students. In many colleges there are no proper lab facilities. Thus the practical exams have become a formality and the colleges are awarding marks to their students even though they do not appear for the exam. In many colleges, practical lessons are not taught to the students. Practicals are supposed to improve the knowledge of the students by teaching what was there in theory books. Intermediate board now has decided to provide the students with the CDs in which the practical exam classes are recorded. The students can get benefited by watching these CDs. Every college can purchase these CDs for their students. These CDs can be purchased by paying the required amount in the form or crossed demand drafts from Board of Intermediate Education.
