The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is looking at critical changes to be made in the class X exam pattern. It is believed that there will be more subjective questions and a reduction of objective ones to encourage creative writing as opposed to the current rote learning system, reports The Tribune.
“The changes will be part of the routine review exercise ahead of exams. Once the changes are finalised, sample papers will also be released, so students get an idea and also get to practice the same before exams,” commented a senior CBSE official.
The board is mulling over the aforementioned changes, and they are considering if they could reduce the number of questions and increase the number of marks to give students the incentive to get creative and write detailed answers.
“It won’t be an overhaul of the entire question paper, but minor changes and students have nothing to worry about,” revealed a minor official.
