No Separate Registration Required For CBSE PSACBSE Problem Solving Assessment Test (CBSE PSA), earlier which was an optional test, that students took to gauge their quantitative and qualitative skills, since have now been turned mandatory for class IX and XI from January 2013, will not require any separate registration, the CBSE notification said. The board has taken into account the numbers from the enrollment data sent by schools.

“Students already registered for class IX and XI with the board are eligible for this test and will use same registration number for PSA. There is no separate roll number required for this purpose,” says one of the clauses of the CBSE notification.

From January 2013, CBSE has made PSA test mandatory for class IX and XI and the marks will be included in the marking scheme of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) system for std IX in its formative assessment. However std XI students will be given a certificate with PSA scores as the CCE does not apply to them, the CBSE notification says.

The CBSE has also clarified through the notification that there will be a common question paper for std XI students irrespective of their stream – science, commerce or humanities. There will be a single question paper covering qualitative reasoning, quantitative reasoning and language conventions.

CBSE has announced that the schools will receive the question papers for PSA test a week before the actual commencement of the test. The test will be in a multiple choice questions (MCQ) format, the quantity of question papers to be sent by CBSE will be in accordance with total number of students registered. A special OMR answer sheet will be included in the booklet.
