CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) this year has adhered many changes in the existing pattern of its education system. The recent change assimilates the diminish of exam questions in class 10th board examination.
CBSE has decided to decrease the number of Objective Type Questions (OTQ) and increase the number of elaborate answers. The reason behind this change is to cherish a student’s creative writing and discourage routine learning.
“The changes will be a part of the routine review exercise ahead of exams. Once the changes are finalised, sample papers will also be released so students get an idea and also get to practice the same before exams,” a senior CBSE official said.
“It won’t be an overhaul of the entire question paper but minor changes and students have nothing to worry about,” added the official.
According to a PTI report, Board experts are considering if they can reduce the number of questions and increase the marks for each question and encourage students to write detailed answers.
