The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is alerting schools about finding ’defunct questions’ in the question papers of Summative assessments (SA) for class IX and X. CBSE has asked to school’s administrations to check the paper before starting the examinations. Summative assessments (SA) are supposed to be started from September 14 across the country, informed by CBSE.

The board has also notified the schools to note the new URL (www.cbseitms.nic.in) from where question papers can be downloaded. CBSE has created special software that works in order to generate SA-1 Question papers. Integrated Test Management System (ITMS) is a solution built by the board itself to mark scheme to schools and to distribute the question papers. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has been using an application called CBSE-ITMS (Integrated Test Management System) that helps in generating and distribution of Question Paper and Marking Scheme. This innovation plays a big role and allows CBSE affiliated schools to access question papers and download with assured security and convenient manner.

There will be two unique question papers displayed online through ITMS for CBSE affiliated schools. Question papers for class IX and X have been created by the board and being sent online for schools to manage regularity. Almost estimated 18,000 schools are supposed to be downloading question papers of summative assessments (SA) for class IX and X CBSE.
