CBSE Changes in the exam pattern

The exam pattern for both class X and XII is set to change this year and CBSE says the new paper format will make it easier and faster. The new pattern has more very short answer type questions and lesser marks have been allotted for long answers than was the case earlier, ensuring less subjectivity.

The format change will affect most subjects including Maths, Social Science and Science and Technology for Class X, and Economics, Accountancy, Business Studies, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Maths for Class XII.

In line with the emphasis on testing higher order thinking skills, there will be a compulsory section of one-mark very short answer type questions. "These questions resemble the multiple choice questions (MCQ) pattern and will judge conceptual understanding"
