The Board of Secondary Education Manipur (BSEM) is a school education board in Manipur, India. BSEM controls, regulate, organises, and looks after the matters associated with school education in Manipur.
|Board of Secondary Education Manipur (BSEM)|
|Type||Government Board of School Education|
The Manipur Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (BSEM) is the governing body in charge of secondary and higher secondary education in the Manipur. Every year, the Manipur board conducts two of the most widely taken exams in Manipur, the Class 10 and the Class 12 exams.
BSEM also gives equal importance to co-curricular activities: According to the BSEM guidelines, the examination is conducted in two terms, and its weightage is given below:
|Term||Assessment (%)||Total (%)|
|Formative Assessment (FA)||Summative Assessments (SA)|
Formative Assessment (FA): Formative assessment includes not only the pen-paper test but also testing through oral testing, quizzes, puzzles, visual testing, interviews, assignment, practicals, projects, group activities, etc.
Summative Assessment (SA): As decided by the school authority, strictly following the guidelines of BSEM. Under this assessment process, the students will be examined based on the syllabus and curriculum of BSEM Class 8.
The BSEM believes that co-scholastic skills are as important as scholastic skills. Hence, these skills will also be assessed for the students. Co-scholastic skills include Attitude and Values, Health and Physical Education, Aesthetic Skills, Participation and Achievement in Literary and Creative Skills.
The exam pattern of the Manipur Board consists of the marks distribution, exam duration and minimum qualifying marks. For better exam preparation, students should be aware of the Manipur Board exam pattern. Exams are broadly divided into two categories when the CCE pattern is in use:
Periodic Tests: In June, July, October, and November, there will be four tests in each subject.
Term Tests: Two tests in every subject in September and February.
20% marks are kept for internal assessment in each subject, and 80% marks are kept for external examination.

The curriculum and syllabus for all Classes are designed by BSEM, and schools affiliated with the Manipur board must follow it. While studying for exams, students must strictly adhere to the BSEM.

(i) Rational Numbers:
• Properties of rational numbers (including identities). The general form of expression to describe properties.
• Consolidation of operations on rational numbers.
• Representation of rational numbers on the number line
• Between any two rational numbers there lies another rational number (Making children see that if we take two rational numbers then unlike for whole numbers, in this case, you can keep finding more and more numbers that lie between them.)

• Integers as exponents.
• Laws of exponents with integral powers
(iii) Squares, Square roots, Cubes, Cube roots:
• Square and Square roots
• Square roots using factor method and division method for numbers containing (a) no more than total 4 digits and (b) no more than 2 decimal places
• Cubes and cubes roots (only the factor method for numbers containing at most 3 digits)
• Estimating square roots and cube roots. Learning the process
of moving nearer to the required number.

Counselling helps students to discover their strengths and weaknesses. The exam is the main component of school education in which they are being evaluated in both academic and non-academic or co-curricular areas. From start, it is hard to focus on the ongoing classes and studies. Also, the performance of the students is influenced by their surroundings at school as well as at home.
Each child is unique in their ability to learn and succeed. It is the duty of the parents to encourage their child’s strengths wrt to their subject interests and also accept their performance without any regret or putting more pressure. Also, communicate with them as much as possible. Communication is a must to understand if they are facing any challenges of issues while preparation or studying the subjects. Assist your child in dealing with problems in school, studies, and peer groups.-

The state’s primary and secondary schools are governed by the Board of Secondary Education. The board currently has 786 high and higher secondary schools (226 government, 103 government-aided, and 457 private) affiliated with it. The state’s schools are either run by the government or by private organisations. Shishu Nistha Niketan School, Slopeland Public School, Kendriya Vidyalaya, Mega Manipur School, and others are among the notable schools in Manipur.

Parent counselling primarily focuses on encouraging positive behaviour, managing undesired behaviour, and understanding their children’s emotional needs. Parent counselling assists parents in coping with several issues that affect their children by providing appropriate guidance, resources, and expertise; also, parents are advised, they should be more aware of the professional options open to their children.
Exams are one way to bring out students' knowledge, interests, capacity, and potential. Students are promoted from grade 8th to grade 9th based on Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE). Apart from this school-level examination, there are numerous competitive exams held nationally and internationally each year. These exams enhance students' confidence and interests in subjects.
Some of the competitive exams to which grade 8 students can appear are:
Some of the competitive exams to which grade 8 students can appear are:
National Talent Search Examination (NTSE): Students are evaluated based on the knowledge and understanding of Science, Maths, Social Science, Mental Ability and General Knowledge. Cash prizes and scholarships facilitate qualified students for the next academic year.
National Level Science Talent Search Exam (NLSTSE): The subjects the students must study for this exam are Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and other general Awareness.
Indian National Olympiad (INO): Physics, Chemistry, Astronomy, Biology and Junior Science are the subjects covered in the curriculum. This exam is divided into five stages. The written exam administered by the NSE is the first stage (National Standard Examination).
GeoGenius: This exam aims to create interest in geography. Students are asked to mark various locations in India on a blank map.
National Interactive Maths Olympiad (NIMO): This exam assesses and analyses mental and mathematical abilities of students.
Real education can connect classroom learning to real-life scenarios for students. When students gain a better understanding of things and subject matter through real-life experience, learning becomes more enjoyable. We must provide our students with ongoing, authentic learning opportunities such as activities, experiments, field trips, group activities, and so on.
It is a creative approach to learning that includes activities and projects. Drama can be used to teach subjects such as English and Hindi, while debate, surveys, and fieldwork can be used to teach social science topics, etc. Science subjects can be experienced in the form of experiments, field studies etc. Some mathematics topics, such as profit and loss, area measurement, and so on, should be taught to students through do-it-yourself activities. Embibe App provides DIY activities for each Class, each subject and each chapter to make your learning joyful and meaningful.
Understanding diversity in the workplace, listening skills, language skills, research skills, planning, leadership skills, being emotionally balanced, self-survey, exploring knowledge, communication skills, and so on are all strengthened by a solid foundation in education. This can be ensured by giving opportunities for all students and encouraging them at all stages of their development. This can be accomplished through the provision of real-life experiences and Do It Yourself activities.
As Class 8 is an early stage of secondary education, career selection is not an easy job, but students are advised to be aware of career opportunities in order to pursue their interests. After Class 10, the student can pursue their interests in Science, Commerce, Arts, Fine Arts, and so on.
