Part 1 English Language
Directions (Q. Nos. 1-10) Read the following passage carefully and answer the given questions. Certain words
have been given in bold to help you locate them while answering some of the questions.
Or attending a conference, which focused on the role of the services sector in Indian economy I was amazed. The conference gave
a very interesting perspective on the role of the service sector in the growth of Indian economy in relation to growth rates in
agriculture and industry. The current situation in India is that the growth rate of services has overtaken both agriculture and industry
and is now contributing to more than 50% of GDP. The services sector has the highest growth rate and is the least volatile sector.
Growth is particularly marked in public services, IT and financial services. In some areas, the growth rate of the services sector is
40-50% due to increased use of mobile technologies. India, therefore has, a services-oriented economy. It hasn't followed
traditional growth models as in China, However, in the process of doing so it has skipped the manufacturing stage and has jumped
straight from the agriculture stage to service stage which is also the main reason for the expansion of the service sector. In fact, the
situation now is such that the growth in the service sector can and will support in the agriculture and industrial sectors.
However, the only setback for Indian economy is the lack of growth in the manufacturing sector, which causes dependence on
other countries, which is not so desirable in terms of job creation and increased prosperity,
Population is also a major concern of the Indian economy. As the population of India grows so also does the number of dependents
in the population in both the lower and higher age groups. In such a scenario of increasing population, especially in an economy
which still recovering from crisis, growth becomes difficult. For such an economy to grow it has to invest.
Currently, the public sector invests more than it saves. The household sector saves in surplus, but it is not increasing so it cannot
continue to support private and public sectors. There is a massive need to spend on agriculture and infrastructure development of
the country. Apart from that health and education should also be the priority of the government particularly the education of
women in order to reduce the birth rate.

booming due to the focus of the
government in that sector.
In the next two decades, Indian
economy will have an opportunity
to grow as the working population
of India will be high as compared
to the dependent population.
There would be only a small period
of time in which the economy of
India has to grow and if it fails to do
so it will never be able to recover
from the economic downfall.
Only upto the next two decades
would Indian people be interested
in finding jobs in the country
beyond which they would search
for jobs abroad thus hampering
the growth of Indian economy.
The growth of Indian economy is
like a small window and in order to
substantiate the growth it is
important to increase the size of
the window by improving trade
relations with other countries.

We should never confuse education with training or the Tools' that educators use* Education is no more a computer or an online
class than it is a chalkboardthose are simply tools. Additionally precious few new and relevant findings have been added to our
into the learning process; much of what many proclaim to be insightful turns out to be faddish and misguided. What we need for
learning to occur are well prepared and motivated teachers, students who are willing and able to learn and a social system that
values educational attainment. Many might take exception to these assertions, raising a host of ancillary social, economic,
nutritional and sociological issues. However, decades of data from failed public experiments aimed at mitigating these problems
argue to the contrary.

What are we to do? Create a wave of educational entrepreneurship? Despite all of the hype and media attention, no one currently
knows the best way forward. We must incentivise educationalists, technologists, and classroom teachers to experiment and
innovate. Such partnerships should truly explore alternatives as we seek to define the blended face-to-face and online class- rooms
of the future. Some approaches will fail, but that is part of the change process.
There will be noone-size-fits-all experience success will vary by discipline and educational objectives. Unless everyone involved
in this process is inspired to take risks, we will not enjoy the full potential these new approaches represent. Also, we should not
forget the extent to which those who most benefit from the current system will attempt to hijack this change process for their own
purposes.
With these issues in mind, consider the following vision of the change process to the classroom of tomorrowa vision that
leverages technology to create a more personalised learning experience. With the onset of this vision the professor-student
relationship will change. What is not likely to survive is the large class in which everyone progresses at the same pace.
That paradigm will be replaced by a more customised and collaborative learning process. The reality of a technology enabled
personalised learning environment is still evolving. What seems clear is that at its heart is a more collaborative and
Student-mapped and paced process. The function of the professor, aided by educationalists, will also change.
Student-professor collaboration will then determine both what content can be assigned to practice methods and how the student
demonstrates mastery of that content. In such cases, timing issues will most likely be left entirely in the student's hands, while
technology specialists recommend the best hardware and software solutions.
Critical thinking or application ideas will involve more specialised, face-to-face and interactive online approaches geared to the
real-time needs and progress the students is making,
Thus, the professor, with the students help, will vigilantly mix and blend the learning ingredients to produce a new learning
environment. How this process plays out in reality will be the result of educational entrepreneurship but is will surely entail both
successes and some failures.
The administration and accreditation of education will also have to change. As more education occurs outside the bricks and
mortar framework and is more centred on the student-professor interaction, the role of all non-teaching staff will need to be
reassessed. As students and faculty increase their use of technology to personalise their formal and informal learning, educational
technologists must be on hand to facilitate the effective use of that technology.
Also, the current hierarchical and standardised outcomes formulas for administration and accreditation of col leges and universities
are no longer tenable. Realistically, they are an impediment to the change needed.
Finally, wc must address one of the most serious challenges facing online educationcheating. Simply put, cheating is rampant
and we are turning a blind eye to the problem. Cheating threatens the integrity of the educational process and the value-added of
the degree. Solutions must be found and implemented or all changes will be for naught,
