Changes in CBSE Class 10 and 12 Board Exams pattern from 2020 and also CBSE by-laws


The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has taken initiative to bring in some changes in Class 10 and Class 12 Board Exams and Paper pattern as well as in its by-laws from 2020.

The changes are meant to assess students based on their conceptual plus analytical skills instead of only mugging up the curriculum. According to one reliable source from CBSE, "The questions will be more in the nature of problem-solving. There will be more short questions (between 1 to 5 marks). The stress would be on probing the critical thinking abilities of students and test actual learning outcomes rather than allow students to score high marks by virtue of rote”. 

These changes which are part of a revamp plan and are likely to be implemented from CBSE Board Exam 2020. However, CBSE Board Examination 2019 aspirants need not worry since the changes would be implemented in 2020.
CBSE bylaws regarding affiliation or renewal of schools will also be made more stringent. The new bylaws suggest that schools should be awarded affiliation or have their affiliations renewed based on their academic qualities instead of their physical infrastructure. The proposed bylaws call for taking into account the quality of teachers, learning outcomes etc. during the affiliation process. As for other facilities, the CBSE will depend on reports submitted by directorates of education or school education departments of respective states.
