A New Exam Pattern in the offing for CBSE Class 10 students


The CBSE board will introduce two options to choose from for mathematics from the year 2020 while dividing all exam papers into two parts

The CBSE board will be introducing a slew of changes in the exam pattern. The Exam paper will henceforth be divided into two sections for English and Mathematics. The students will first have to attend and clear an internal marking test at the school level. The internal exam will be for 20 marks. Only after the successful completion of this will they be able to move ahead and give the final examination. The Final paper will constitute a total of 80 marks.

Mathematics subject syllabus will offer options in terms of difficulty levels. This enables the students to choose what they would like to study. The current syllabus will be known as mathematics ‘standard’ while an alternate version will be available too. This is an easier version known as Mathematics ‘basic’. The students who opt for the basic course though, won’t be able to pursue any higher education course pertaining to maths or science.

The other major change being introduced is for the subject of English. The focus will now be on students ability to develop their own style of writing. The board has issued instructions to the schools to encourage students to personalize their writing while staying away from the habit of writing answers as written in the textbooks.

The CBSE Board will most likely make an official announcement in the third week of May. These changes are in line with the aim of transitioning the education system towards a more skill oriented one whilst easing the burden of students.

The Central Board of Secondary Education conducts examination for public and private schools and is a national level board of education in India. It is headed and controlled by the Union Government of India. All the schools affiliated to the CBSE board are required to follow the NCERT curriculum only. CBSE affiliated schools in India approximately amounts to 19,316 and 211 schools in 28 foreign countries.
