Some tips for disabled students on using a scribe effectively
March 4, 2018
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) gives many concessions for students who come under the Candidates With Special Needs (CWSN) category.
Among the concessions granted to disabled students taking their board exams is that he or she is entitled to a scribe or an exam writer to write the paper.
Students with disabilities can choose their own scribe or exam writer.
There are some important things to remember if you are a student with a disability and are using a scribe for the first time.
- Make sure you have several practices reading out your answers before the exam. This is to make sure you get used to the idea. This way your attention is focused on answering the question.
- Remember that the scribe is there to write. They are not supposed to engage in the content.
- Practice speaking in well-formed sentences so that your answers are clear.
- Practice framing your answers with someone you don't know well. This is because it is hard to speak formally with family or friends.
- Use old exam questions and practice answering them.
- Keep time limits the same as your actual exam.
- At the exam hall, think about what you want to say before you say it.
- If you get stuck for a word, don't panic. Take a breath and relax. Start your thought again.
- If you lose track of what you were thinking, you can ask the scribe to read back what has been written
