M.Sc., M.Ed., JRF & NET
Lecturer in Physical Science, Arafa Institute for Teacher Education
Many teacher trainees fear commission, the pet name for the B.Ed. External Practical examination. And after the exam they feel it was all a farce. It is not a thing to be feared nor is it a farce. The external practical exam is a check measure by the university to ensure that a candidate is neither unduly favoured nor penalized. This external check mechanism simply ensures that the marks awarded by the college are prudent.
The examiners with a limited time will be trying to weigh the substance of each candidate, simultaneously comparing with other candidates of the same college as well as other colleges.
