Some suggestions.

  • All participating schools/ junior colleges should provide for the exclusive use their participants, a computer lab with a minimum of 10 computers and Internet connectivity with a minimum speed of 512 KBPS (non-shared).
  • Minimum bandwidth as mentioned must be maintained for the duration of the test and must not be contended. A bandwidth checker could be used though only as a guide since its result is no guarantee that suitable bandwidth will be available for the session.
  • Schools with lower number of computers compared to aspiring students could conduct the examination in batches thus giving a chance to all its students. Alternatively or where the existing computers are not up to the desired levels, the school administration could conduct the proceedings of the examination at another location. Irrespective of the choice that a participating school/ junior college makes, it is advisable to conduct the same to the extent possible in an area where one has complete control which could be one’s own school/ junior college or any other location.
  • Whatever decision the participating school/ junior college takes, it should be communicated to P.A.Inamdar College of VEDA with full details.
