Fund of the Council

The financial administration of the Council is carried out by creating a fund of the Council under the provisions of the Manipur higher Secondary Education Act, 1992. The fund is created with the incomes accumulated from collections of fees and fines, etc.

The Council does not get any grant from the State Government or any other agency. The fund is managed by adopting a Budget estimate of its own for every financial year starting from 1st of April and ending on 31st March of every year.

Progress Growth of the Council

In the year 1992, the Council of Higher Secondary Education, Manipur was started with a meagre number of employees of less than 20 in numbers and conducted its first Higher Secondary Examination, 1993 in the state of Manipur. Now, so far we have successfully conducted 20 Higher Secondary Examinations annually and a separate Higher Secondary Compartmental Examination in the month of June/July every year since 2003. We have started conducting Class XI Examination too since 1997.

We have started computerized process of examination results in 2003 with the hosting of both the results of Higher Secondary Examination and Higher Secondary Compartmental Examination of the Council through website with technical support extended by N.I.C., Imphal Centre.

Till date, the Council is working with a small number of staff of less than 70 persons and looking forward to March ahead in the front line of +2 education of the state in particular and the nation as well.

Innovations and reforms taken up

Since the establishment of the Council, we have so far organized two major workshops on techniques of Paper Setting and evaluation in collaboration with the N.C.E.R.T. and developed Design of Question Papers for each and every subject under the Council. Such workshops with local experts have also been organized for Language subjects, etc., and updated the pattern of examination in the line of C.B.S.E. and other national level agencies. Question papers for both the Higher Secondary and Class XI Examinations of the Council are set in conformity with the said Design of Papers. All the papers are moderated before finalization and printing of the same.

The examination is conducted under two categories of centres – (i) Council centre and (ii) Private centre. The Council centres are located in areas of Greater Imphal covering around a diameter of 8-Kilometres of the city and directly under the supervision of the Council during the examination. But, the private centres are under the supervision of a private centre committee constituted for each and every examination for distant and specific localities in different parts of the State. There are about 20 to 25 Council centres and 25 to 30 Private centres for every year for conduct of the Higher Secondary Examination of the Council.

One Supervising Officer is deputed to both the council as well as Private centres of the examination by the Council over and above the appointment of other officials of the examination centres.

Above this, Flying Scout/Inspection Teams consisting of at least 3 to 4 members including Lady member in each Team are also deputed to help the officials of Examination Centres and check malpractices of the candidates during examination hours. At least 20 to 26 such Teams are engaged and sent to different centres in the State by rotation to each and every centre of Examination.

All the Answer Khatas of the examination are deposited to the office of the Controller of Examination everyday after the examination or by next day of the examination for centres which are far from office of the Council. As soon as the theory examination is over, all the khatas are codified and ready for evaluation at the Central Evaluation Centre of the Council. Practical Examinations are conducted within 20 days after the completion of theory examinations.

Till now, the marking system in numerical score is done for every subject. We have introduced “Grading System” along with the introduction of CCE (Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation) with effect from the session, 2011-12 in class XI and 2012-13 in class XII. In "the statement of subjectwise performance cum certificate of school based Evaluation" (Marks Statement) both the total marks obtained and its corresponding Grade and Grade Point will be shown for every subject offered by a student.

The Council always tries to complete and declare the results of Higher Secondary Examination within 45 days after the completion of theory examination and uptill now we were able to achieve this goal for the last more than 10(ten) years.
