New Delhi: A seminar group cross-word is being created to help students prepare for the upcoming GSQAs, which are the pinnacle of educational activities for Indian students.
The GSQ is an annual exam in which students must answer five questions, in a time limit of two minutes.
The five questions are: A, B, C, D, E. The questions have been designed to help all students in the Indian state of Maharashtra, and are based on different Indian languages and cultures.
A group of about 200 students, mostly students from the upper middle-class and the middle classes, were invited to take part in the GSQs, organised by the National Board of Secondary Education (NBSE).
The first question to be answered by a group of students, however, was the question on “Group Quizzes” by an English teacher.
The teacher had given the question “How many groups do you want to answer?”
The students had to answer the question in groups of five, and then the question from the group to which they belonged would be asked.
The students were given 10 minutes to answer.
They then had to go back and do their answers in groups for the next group.
The first group was chosen from each group, and the final answer was then decided by the group.
After completing the GSQU, the students had two hours to study, and if they did not do well, they were sent home.
The school principal of the school, Prabhat Dutta, said that the group was meant for students who have no prior knowledge of Indian languages, who are new to English and are not familiar with Hindi.
The class is designed to ensure that students have the basic knowledge about English, but the students are also taught about Indian culture and culture.
The students were divided into groups of around 20, said Duttat, adding that each group is divided into five sub-groups.
In each sub-group, the group has two students.
Students from each subgroup are also given 10 questions, which have been chosen by the teacher.
In the first sub-question, students are asked to write a group question.
They have to write the question word for word in English, and try to write as many words as possible.
The second sub-question asks the students to answer five consecutive words, and in the third sub-ask the students have to say the name of a particular group.
The final sub-answer asks students to say whether they have a group and why they are there.
The student has to answer “yes” or “no”, but if they answer “no” then they will be given a paper bag and told that they have to go home.
For the last question, students have a choice of three different answers, depending on the question they had chosen.
They then have to tell the teacher their answers and then a group is chosen.
If students do not answer correctly, they will get a paper that will be delivered to them.
Dutthat said that students can have any of the five subgroups, which can be either Hindi or English.
The group is meant to be a fun and challenging activity, he added.
The Indian government has set a target of 500 million students participating in GSQ, which will help improve their language skills.
The government is also working towards developing a GSQL curriculum, which would be a standardised, national curriculum, he said.
The curriculum will also help the students understand their language and culture, and will give them an opportunity to meet other students from other countries, he continued.
The government also wants to establish a national GQA committee that will help them develop their skills.
