There’s some good news for students in Tamil Nadu. The government plans to set up 500 new free NEET training centres by the end of October and the students will be given identity cards to use these centres.
The government will also be releasing 50,000 questions prepared by experts to help students pass competitive examinations like NEET. These questions will be released in phases from the end of this month, said education minister KA Sengottaiyan on Thursday, reported The Times of India.
While speaking during state principals' conference on `Futuristic Schools' organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) Tamil Nadu, he said that 1,000 to 2,000 questions will be released each week which would allow teachers and students to do these questions at a time.
When asked about teacher requirement for these centres, the minister said that they had enough teachers for the training and various methods would be used for teaching including video tutorials, reported ToI.
The curriculum framework will be put out in November for 10 days for the stakeholders to provide feedback. He added that necessary changes will be made to the curriculum based on the feedback and textbooks will be prepared for Classes I, VII, IX and XI. Moreover, Information and Communications Technology classrooms will be set up at a cost of Rs. 437 crore, reported The New Indian Express.
The minister had earlier stated that the new syllabus would be a model for the rest of the country. The Curriculum Framework Committee led by M Anandakrishnan will be coming out with the new revised curriculum and it would be implemented in a phased manner in three years, said the report.
