The Director-General of School Education (DGSE), Pradeep
Aggarwal has issued an order, which asks Punjab government school
students from classes 6 to 10 to sit for a 50-mark Vedic Mathematics
test on January 19.The test results will have to be sent
to the DGSE office by 4 pm on the same day. Consequently, District
Education Officers (DEOs) would prepare a list of schools, which didn’t
conduct the test and send the same to the DGSE office.
The motive
of the test is to assess how well students understood Vedic maths, for a
better curriculum plan in future. The school curriculum doesn’t include
Vedic maths as yet.
