The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has started registrations for the fifth edition of its Student Global Aptitude Index (SGAI) which will be 
held tentatively in November 2014 for the students of class X in schools affiliated with it across the globe. 
 
The registration for SGAI has started from September 19 and will continue till October 15, a press release from CBSE said.
 
Schools may register through online List of Candidates (LOC) by October 15 and deposit the fee, at the rate of Rs 100 per student, at the concerned regional offices.
 
Communication with regard to the modalities of SGAI November 2014 will be further made with participating schools, it said.
 
CBSE Students Global Aptitude Index (SGAI) is an optional activity meant for the students of class X. The assessment facilitates the students of class X in knowing their aptitude and interest which helps them further in making realistic decisions while choosing subjects in class XI.
 
The year 2013 alone saw two editions of the SGAI. About six lakh students have taken the assessment in four editions across the globe. 
 
"SGAI aims at initiating a dialogue on academic choices among various stakeholders like parents, teachers and students that may lead to effective career planning later in life, besides empowering a student," the release said.
 
Like previous years, the Students Global Aptitude Index Advocacy cum Sensitization Programmes for the fifth edition of SGAI started on July 5 in Haryana and have been conducted in Kerala, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Chattisgarh, Uttrakhand, Punjab, Andaman & Nicobar, Maharashtra, Himachal Pradesh and Karnataka. 
 
As many as 17 programmes have been conducted this year in which around 1050 Principals, Vice-Principals, Counsellors and senior teachers from almost 656 schools have been trained. The trained/sensitized counsellors and teachers take up the programme subsequently in their schools to generate understanding about the aptitude assessment, it said.
 
"SGAI is reliable source in making academic choices. In fact, large a number of schools have approached CBSE to make SGAI compulsory but more than that it is important for the students, teachers and parents to understand the relevance of the assessment instead of being compelled to opt for assessment.
 
"All efforts are being made by the Board to make 5th Edition of SGAI available in an online mode," the release added.
