Sri Chaitanya IIT Academy, SR Nagar, Hyderabad, Dec. 15: The colege has adopted a new model for setting the key to all exams for all sections. In the original model, taking from a standard template for EAMCET, the paper-setter would prepare a key beforehand, an it would be circulated to students after the exam.
However, a number of flaws emerged in that mode. In particular, the observation that paper-setters were misusing their powers by changing the key so as to ensure that their students bagged higher ranks. Furthermore, the fact that hostel students distributed the key to their day-scholar friends, who write the exam one day later.
The new model eliminated both problems. Now, a free-float key model will force lecturers to solve the question papers and report their key, after discussing it with their students. A final key would be decided after a conference. Although longer, the system will be a major step forward. (OTFS)
