ORDER:
In continuation of the Curriculum Reforms undertaken under National Curriculum Frame Work -2005 and Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009, and with an objective to facilitate for a shift in the teaching learning process and to improve transactions of new technologies, and to transform the ways of learning to be comprehensive, holistic and dynamic, Government have brought in the Examination Reforms vide G.O. Ms. No. 17, School Education (PE.Prog.II) Dept. dated 14.05.2014 for classes IX and X from the academic year 2014-15 onwards.

However, certain quantitative and qualitative measures were contemplated under the reforms such as reducing the number of papers from 11 to 9, giving 80% of the weightage to the Subject papers, and 20% of weightage to the Internal Assessment of the Student, Training for teachers on the new patterns of teaching and text books, summative and formating assessment etc., all of which require extensive capacity building at the level of all High Schools in the State of Andhra Pradesh but the said training programmes were not held due to various administrative reasons.

2. The Commissioner of School Education, A.P. Hyderabad in letters 2nd, 7th & 8th read above has stated, among other things, that the concept of Internal Evaluation has not drilled into the minds of either Government Teachers or Private Teachers. Since there are large number of Government as well as Private Schools in the State and introduction of the new procedure without taking adequate preparatory steps to orient the Teachers and Students to the new system will have serious ramifications on the future of the students. In the G.O. Ms. No. 17, School Edn (PE.Prog.II) Dept. dated 14.05.2014 has reduced the Language papers whereas the basic objective of School Education is to impart languages in the early years of student life. As such reducing two papers of the Languages to one paper and giving lot of weightage to the Subjects is not desirable at School level. The Commissioner & Director of School Education, A.P. Hyderabad has also opined that it is not possible to monitor the Internal Evaluation of large number of Government and Private Schools in the State and the new system would eventually result into reduction of academic standards.

The Commissioner of School Education, A.P. Hyderabad has, therefore, requested the Government to rescind/defer the G.O. Ms. No. 17, dated 14.05.2014 and requested to accord permission to constitute an Expert Committee with the Directors, RMSA, Government Examinations and SCERT to study and propose modifications to the reforms mentioned in the G.O. Ms. No. 17, dated 14.05.2014.

3. In the circumstances reported by the Commissioner of School Education, A.P. Hyderabad and considering the opinion of the Commissioner of School Education that require in depth study and consultation on the various academic issues raised, Government have kept the G.O. Ms. No. 17, School Education (PE.Prog.II) Department, dated 14.05.2014 in abeyance for the Academic Year 2014-15 only and constituted an Expert Committee with the following officers as proposed by the Commissioner & Director of School Education, A.P. Hyderabad: -

1. Director, RMSA, A.P. Hyderabad
2. Director of Government Examinations, A.P. Hyderabad
