It is expected that the Central Board of Secondary Education will introduce new changes in the exam pattern of Class 10 and 12 board exam. This new initiative has been taken to boost creativity as well as critical and analytical thinking among students. The major changes in the exam pattern will come into effect by the year 2023.
Addressing the ASSOCHAM School Education Summit, Anurag Tripathi, CBSE Secretary, said, “While this year students of class 10 will get 20 percent objective questions and 10 percent questions would be based on creative thinking, by 2023 question papers for classes 10 and 12 will be based on creative, innovative and critical thinking and students will have to prepare in that manner, it is the need of the hour keeping in mind the country’s future”.
With a move to encourage students to opt for vocational subjects, he further added, “The new policy has recommended that vocational subjects need to be a part of the five subjects, it would be a good move. The NEP also focuses on different aspects like early childhood care, teacher training, promoting vocational education and thus, it would be a challenge to implement the same”.
