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.
