CBSE 2021 exam paper pattern changes: There is a big change noticed in the sample question papers of Class 12. In order to give more weightage to reasoning and aptitude, it is learnt that the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has reportedly tweaked the question paper pattern for Class 12 board examinations. Apparently, the CBSE is focusing more on multiple-choice questions and those based on case studies. If reports are to be believed the new pattern aims to test students' ability to understand.
The change in question pattern for Class 12 CBSE exam came to the fore after several schools noticed that weightage for MCQs has been increased by 10 per cent in the sample question papers released by the board for Class 12 exam.
Earlier, the board had reduced the syllabus for Class 10 and Class 12 by 30 per cent, cutting down at least 4-5 chapters in every subject. The idea was to put less pressure on students and teachers to complete the syllabus in these troubled times of coronavirus pandemic. The change is going to be implemented from this session.
The board has also released the tentative dates for the Class 12 practical exam. As per the notification, the practical examinations will be held from January 1 to February 8.
The board also released sample papers on its official website. If one goes through the sample papers, the marks pattern can be easily understood.
To explain the marks pattern to students, schools will conduct pre-board examinations and revision tests, based on the latest sample paper released by the board.
According to the board, in subjects holding 70 and 80 marks, students need to secure a minimum 23 and 26 marks respectively to clear the paper.
The practical examination will be of 30 marks in which a student need to secure at least marks to clear it.
The practical examination will be number 30. In which 9 numbers have to be brought, while only 23 numbers will be required to pass the 70 number practical examination.
Except for practical subjects, there will also be an internal assessment of 20 marks for Class 10 and Class 12, for which a student need to secure minimum 6 marks to clear it.
