Salient Details of the Examination     [Top]

           With the sublime blessings of Param Pujya Gurudev Pt. Sri Ram Sharma Acharya and The mother superior Smt. Bhagwati Devi Sharma, BSGP examination was first conducted at:

1. Bhopal with 2000 students and 20 participating schools of the district in the year 1994, in Hindi.

2. In the year 1996, entire MP state was covered with 200 schools of the state participating and 2.50 Lac . students taking the exam. The test was conducted in Hindi and English both.

3. Between the years 1997 to 2000, 20 Lac. Students from 300 districts of eastern, western and southern states took the exam. in Hindi, English, Marathi, Oriya and Gujarati Languages.

4. In the year 1999, from MP, the entire management of the exam was transferred to be held under the aegis of Shantikunj.

5. Between the years 2000 to 2003 about 25 lac. Students from about 50,000 schools participated in the exam. The participating students comprised Hindu, Jain, Sikkh, Christians and Muslim religions etc.

6. From 2003 to date (2010), complete management of BSGP viz. publication, finance, meetings (Goshthis), editing of study material, writing of books is being entirely done at Shantikunj under the guidance of Adarniya Shail Didi and Dr.Pranav Pandyaji. Examination is now being conducted in Tamil, Telugu, Nepalese and Bengali languages also, besides the languages mentioned above. Gradually increasing from 25 lac., in the year 2003, 45 Lac. students took the exam in 2010. This was made possible by the dedication of school principals, teachers of schools, local Gayatri Parivar  Parijans and workers of Shantikunj and lastly but not the least students and their parents. There is equal response from rural and urban areas. No education board in India conducts any examination at this huge scale. Most importantly this proves that people of India are strong believers of ancient Indian culture and India’s moral value based education.

7. In the year 2010 we reached out to J&K, north eastern states like Mizoram, Assam and Tripura and Nepal. This exam has found its niche in South Africa, US and Canada also.

At state and district levels 5 to 11 members are nominated unanimously by Gayatri Parivar Patrijans of the concerned area. Gayatri Shaktipeeths are nodal centers for these examinations. In the villages, block and Tehsil level committee members canvass for these exams.

Mode of Conducting  examination- history and present position

Only one book was prescribed initially in 1994.Thereafter one book and a question bank was used from 1996 for classes 6th to 12th.From the year 2000 a bifurcation was made as junior (from class 6th to 8TH) and senior (from class 9th to 12th). From the year 2002 to 2005, the scheme was further bifurcated to 3-tier system viz. Junior (6th to 8thclass) middle (9th and 10th class) and higher secondary (11th to 12th). From 2006, a 4-tier system was introduced viz first- class 5th and 6th, second-class 7th and 8th, third–class 9th and 10th and fourth-class 11th and 12th. This was done on the basis of feedback received from the field workers of Gaytri Pariwar spanning the entire country.

               From 2009 a revolutionary change in the mode of examination was made in keeping with the times. For the first time use of OMR (optical mark reader) system of examination was introduced. Further, from class 5th to 12th, classes and their examination were segregated ie. each class had its individual   book and individual   question paper. Previously two classes were clubbed together for examination and course of study.

                Further on the popular demand of Gayatri Pariwar Parijans, an examination of above class X11 level was introduced for adults (a step towards adult education). About 7000 persons took the exam. A textbook “Sahitya Darpan” written and edited by the educationalists of Shantikunj was prescribed for this exam as study material. A contributory amount of Rs 30.00 per participant was charged. From the beginning up to 2004, contributory amount (To cover the cost of books and other study material, publicity material, transportation and other sundry expenditure) was Rs. 10.00 per student for all classes and from 2005 to 2008,it was raised to Rs 12 and from the year 2009,it is Rs 12 for classes 5th to 8th and Rs 15th for classes 9th to 12th.
