The Gujarat education department has decided to launch a WhatsApp-based weekly examination on a trial basis for students of classes 3 till 12 from January 23.
Students of Classes 3 till 5 will take examinations for Gujarati and Environmental Science subjects on WhatsApp. This will be followed by the second test on January 30 for classes 3 till 12 while the third test will be conducted on February 6 for Classes 3 till 10 for Environment, English, Hindi, Science and Mathematics.
Each test has been designed by Samagra Shiksha and the Education Department’s Command and Control Centre (CCC) as a set of ten multiple-choice questions.
The students have to fill in their schools’ UDISE (Unified District Education System for Education) code which will then generate schools name, DISE code, taluka and district name on 8595524523 after sending a ‘hello’ message. After confirmation from the student, he or she will be directed towards the questions.
