-By ArdorComm News Network

In a groundbreaking initiative, the Uttar Pradesh Basic Education Department has developed question banks tailored for over 25 lakh students enrolled in grades 9 and 10 across more than 27,000 schools affiliated with the UP Board. These question banks are strategically designed to bolster students’ preparation for competitive examinations such as those for engineering and medical entrances.

Collaborating with esteemed institutions including the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) in New Delhi, the State Institute of Science Education (SISE), and subject matter experts from select universities, colleges, and secondary schools, the UP education department has curated comprehensive question banks for science and mathematics subjects.

Under the guidance of Vijay Kiran Anand, former State Project Director of Samagra Shiksha Abhiyan, the responsibility of developing these question banks was entrusted to the State Science Education Institute in Prayagraj.

The science question bank for classes 9 and 10 encompasses 12 and 13 chapters respectively, with each chapter featuring approximately 70 questions spanning multiple formats including multiple choice, very short, short, and long-answer questions. Similarly, the mathematics question bank for the same classes comprises 12 and 14 chapters respectively, with a total of approximately 912 and 1,064 questions. Additionally, sample questions are provided to generate interest and facilitate effective practice.

The questions in these banks are meticulously crafted to reinforce fundamental scientific and mathematical concepts among students, enabling them to grasp and apply these concepts with confidence.

These question banks, developed based on the NCERT syllabus, have been forwarded by SISE-Prayagraj to the State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT) in Lucknow. They are anticipated to be made available to students shortly.

Traditionally, only question banks prepared and published by private publishers have been accessible in the market. The introduction of these official question banks by the UP education department signifies a significant step towards providing students with structured and reliable resources to enhance their exam preparation and academic performance.

By offering ample practice opportunities aligned with teaching-learning objectives, these question banks aim to empower students to excel in their examinations. They are poised to serve as invaluable tools in clarifying concepts, strengthening subject comprehension, and fostering academic success among students.
