Reading Time: 2 minutes

New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has officially announced major revamps in the question patterns for board exams for both Classes X and XII to reduce stress and encourage creative answers.

In a  series of tweets late on Tuesday night, CBSE said the number of descriptive questions in Class X exams beginning 2020 have been reduced to make the papers less lengthy.

The number of descriptive questions in Class XII papers such as Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Accountancy among others has also been reduced.

“It means students will get more time to think and write more creative answers without stress.”

There will be more internal choices and practical internal assessment in all the subjects carrying 20 marks.




As reported earlier by Odisha Bytes, the objective type questions of one mark each will range from 25 per cent in the English Core and Mathematics papers to 40 per cent in the Biology paper.
