new Delhi. The Union Ministry of Human Resource Development said on Monday that the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will change the way of 10th and 12th examinations. Human Resources Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank said that the board will take this step to end the rote tradition and enhance thinking and reasoning skills in the students. These changes will be done during the 10th and 12th examinations in 2020.
Nishank gave information about the change of CBSE board in the Lok Sabha in response to questions from MPs Keshari Devi and Chirag Paswan. The total number of students of class 10th and 12th of CBSE is around 32 lakhs across the country.
There will be internal assessment of subjects without practical examination.
Nishank said – The board will emphasize on changes like reducing the number of questions, increasing the number of objective questions, internal choice as well as internal evaluation of every subject. Students will be given internal option in 33% of all questions. The number of objective questions with one number will remain 25% in the question paper. The marks of internal assessment of each subject will be 20%. These will be subjects in which there is no practical examination.
