Braille to be introduced in HSLC Exam : SEBA
In a Much-Needed First, SEBA Issues Braille question papers to visually impaired students
To encourage visually impaired students, the Board of Secondary Education, Assam (SEBA) is going to introduce question papers in Braille for the visually impaired students appearing in this year’s HSLC examination starting from February 14.
SEBA would start the process with General Science question paper for the first time this year, followed by General Mathematics in a phased manner.
The Board would soon send the Braille printed question papers to the five examination centres, where the visually impaired candidates would appear for their HSLC examination.
The step has been taken keeping in mind the inconvenience faced by the visually impaired students appearing for their examination, who take the help of scribes to write their papers.
The students, however, would also have their usual question papers apart from the Braille papers. This year, a total of 13 visually impaired candidates are appearing for the HSLC exams.
