Hyderabad, Nov 5 (UNI) The Andhra Pradesh Government is contemplating to abolish common examination for class VII from 2007-08, School Education Minister N Rajyalakshmi told the State Assembly here today.

In a reply to D Sridhar Babu and other Congress MLAs, she said the government was considering it to avoid cut-throat competition among educational institutions.

The National Curriculum Framework-2005 envisaged abolition of common examination at the elementary stage and remove stress and strain on people in facing examination, she said, adding the common examination might not have been effective since the pass percentage for the last several years had been more than 98 per cent.
