The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is planning to some changes in the Class 10 examination pattern from current 2019 academic year to reward “creative answers and discourage rote learnings”.
The CBSE Board is likely to decrease the number of objective questions and seeking elaborate answers to ensure creative writing and discourage rote learning.
CBSE has decided to diversify the current format of objective questions that carry 20 marks. But the significant changes will happen in the theory worth 60 marks. These sections will now have fewer questions with each give higher marks to encourage long form and creative answers.
For the internal assessment that carry 20 marks, students will have to create a portfolio on a particular subject and their learning during the year that will carry 5 to 10 marks.
CBSE will introduce the new paper format in sample papers in July, 2019 for teachers and students to understand the Class 10th question paper pattern.
