CBSE class 12 Board examination pattern

This year the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) made some important changes to the Class 12 exam pattern. Students should be aware of every minute detail of the modified exam pattern, from adding the internal exam in all subjects to changing the format of question paper for board exam. CBSE has given more importance to school-based/internal assessment as per the new exam pattern.

Significant changes in the question paper format will be observed in the Board Exam 2020. Question papers will have more target-type questions. Important changes in the question paper format will be seen in the board exam 2020. Questions papers will have more target-type questions.

According to the analysis, the changes will be implemented in the question paper pattern from the school year 2019-20. CBSE seeks to improve board logical and reasoning skills among students with improvement in class 12 exam format.

The exam pattern will be closely related to the competitive exam so that students are more focused on understanding the concepts instead of rotary learning.

Here are some important changes to be done by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) for Class 12th examination.

1.  More numbers of multiple-choice questions (MCQ)

According to the CBSE board, CBSE will introduce a 25% objective type question for all subjects in board exam 2020.  So the MCQ questions will be of 20 marks for a paper consisting of 80 marks and 60 marks for subjective type questions.

The reason for introducing MCQ questions is that students should go into detail about each subject, instead of rote the answers.

Therefore, these MCQ questions can reduce the burden of writing long answers and help students achieve more marks on the exam. At the same time, the difficulty level of MCQ questions is expected to be simpler than the long questions.

This will definitely help the students to increase their grades in the examinations and reduce the burden of writing a longer thesis. In addition, MCQ will encourage students to study every subject properly.

2. Internal assessment in all subject

According to the new system, it is expected that CBSE will allocate 20 percent of marks for the internal assessment of all subjects. The theory papers will carry 80 percent marks from the academic session 2019-20 and 20 percent rest will be allocated to the internal assessment. Before only a few subjects had the external assessment and it will now be applied to all the subjects.

3.  School exams will measure 10 marks in final results

10 marks from school exams will contribute towards the overall marks in a subject in the board's Exam 2020. Board examination will be conducted for 80 marks in Class 12 Mathematics and English subjects and the remaining 20 marks will be retained for internal assessment. While you ask about science, the results of the school exams would take 10 marks out of 20. The additional 10 marks will take the form of an internal evaluation.

4. Practical examination can be conducted at external examination centers

CBSE is mulling for conducting practical exams at external centers in the same manner as for the theory examinations from the board assessments 2020. Also, the Board could develop a new marking scheme for CBSE Class 10 and Class 12 realistic exams. In which the date of practical examination is addressed in the Board Exam 2020, CBSE may conduct practical examinations in December according to media reports, and significant examinations will begin on 15 February 2019. However, no confirmation has been issued by the board on the same.

5. Internal choice questions numbers will be increased

The board will offer the students in question more internal choices. The external options will now be expanded by 33 % in all sections of a question paper. It allows students to figure out what they are most confident and comfortable with. That has been done to increase the students ' average score.

CBSE is expected to release a note about these major changes to the Class 12 exam pattern soon. However, the CBSE has not released any such official notification yet. We'll keep the students updated with the latest news. The CBSE board exam 2020 is to be carried out according to the syllabus of the CBSE and not the books of the NCERT.
