With an objective to develop creative, critical and analytical thinking in students, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is planning to  introduce major changes in the question paper pattern for classes 10 and 12 from the year 2023, said CBSE Secretary Anurag Tripathi at the school education summit organised by the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM).

This year students of Class 10 will get 20 percent objective questions and 10 percent questions would be based on creative thinking, by 2023 question papers for classes 10 and 12 will be based on creative, innovative and critical thinking. Students who will appear for exams in 2023 and onwards will have to prepare according to the new pattern.

The reason behind this development is to encourage more students to opt for vocational subjects. Currently, very few students opt for vocational subjects during their school education. This happens due to factors like lack of employability, poor value, and absence of stability in the market said the secretary. “There is also a need to promote proper linkages and bonding among key stakeholders in the schooling system including infrastructure, teachers, parents, and students, said the CBSE Secretary.

He recommended that schools must devote more time to enhance teacher’s knowledge hence. He advocates that teachers need to be trained and groomed for three to six months to become mentors, highly motivated communicators, expressive, and have critical thinking and demonstrate emotional balance.

 “New education policy aims at bridging the gap between vocational and main subjects”, quoted Anurag Tripathi.

The new education policy will definitely lead to structural and curriculum changes. Meritnation will keep you posted on all developments in this area. Keep watching this space to stay updated.
