CBSE Board Secretary says Class 10 and 12 CBSE Exam Pattern to be modified

The Central Board of Secondary Education is expected to introduce a few changes to the exam pattern for class 10 and board exams by 2023. Anurag Tripathi, secretary of CBSE speaking at an Assoham School Education Summit said that although this year class 10 students will receive 20 percent objective question and 10 percent creative thinking by 2021, the question papers will be based on creative, innovative and critical thinking for class 10 and 12 board examination. He also added that according to the pattern, the students will have to prepare for the exam.

Tripathi also pointed out that vocational subjects like in India do not find many takers due to lack of employability, poor value and lack of market stability, and that there is a need to cultivate proper connections and bonding among key stakeholders such as educators, family, students and infrastructure.

At the ASSOCHAM Summit, the CBSE director (Training and Skill Education) Biswajit Saha said that schools had to concentrate on the students skill rather than their employability and implement adaptive and project-based training along with following the child-centered methodology in the classroom.

He also said that in order to keep students minds and needs in perspective a flexible system must be adopted in the curriculum transaction process. With regard to the common curriculum, based curriculum to be introduced. 

He also suggested that the schools should give students between classes 1 to 8 free semesters and not block them inside their syllabus boundaries. He pointed out that such steps will lead to more outcomes, and career orientations will also be created by placing free-semester concepts on the students.

He also took the opportunity to highlight that the CBSE does not influence primary education and that the government and private school are given complete freedom with respect to syllabus or textual content. He explained that the board mainly comes into the picture of tests in class 10 and 12 where the board prescribes the syllabus for the test, but not the procedure.
