Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has introduced some major changes in the examination pattern for class 12 in the academic session 2019-20.
As per the new exam pattern, CBSE has given more weight to the school-based/internal assessment.
Major change will be observed in the questions paper format in the board exam 2020. Question papers will have more number of objective type questions.
CBSE changed the examination pattern with an aim to
Internal assessment in all subjects
Earlier, the internal assessment was not involved in all the subjects of class 12 like Maths, languages, Political Science. As per the new assessment scheme, now, about 20% marks will be kept for internal assessment in all these subjects. Thus, form the March 2020 board exam, the CSBE board paper will carry 80% marks. However, for the Science subjects and fine arts the weightage will remain unchanged.
More Number of Objective Type questions
This comes as a major relief for class 12 students that CBSE will be introducing 25% multiple choice questions (MCQs) in all the subjects in board exam 2020. Thus, out of 80, only 60 marks will be given to the subjective type questions where students are required to write the detailed answers. This will definitely help students improve their scores in exams and lessen the burden of writing a lengthy paper. Moreover, MCQs will push students to study each and every topic with proper understanding.
Increased Number of Internal Choices in Different Questions
Board had already introduced more number of internal choices in 2019 Board Exams where the internal options in all sections of question paper were increased by 33%. The same practice shall continue henceforth for all subjects in the class 12 board examination 2020. The increased number I of choices helps students pick a question which they are more confident about. This definitely helps them enhance their marks in the board examination.
Board has also eliminated few chapters form the syllabus of CBSE Class 12 Chemistryand CBSE Class 12 Physics for academic session 2019-2020. Students must go through the latest CBSE syllabus to know the topics prescribed for board examination 2020.
