traditional study by student vs interactive studentsThe next academic year will be quite different for lakhs of students. Students appearing for the  CBSE Class 10 exam will have to study the complete syllabus and score 33% in both theory and internal assessment to pass. According to the latest circular by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), the board is on its way to remodel the assessment structure for the board exams.

Last year, the CBSE announced its decision to make board exams mandatory for Class 10. “Consequent upon the decision…the dual scheme of examination for class X shall stand discontinued for students from the academic year 2017-18,” said a circular issued by the board.

The board exams will carry 80 marks and 20 marks for Internal Assessment, according to the new structure. For internal assessment, schools will have to conduct three periodic written tests in each subject, in place of the four FAs. The average of the best two would be the decider and taken for final marks submission.

Notebook submission and subject enrichment activities aimed at boosting understanding and skill development, are the other addition to the tests.

The board has included discipline as a grade subject and students will also be marked on attendance, sincerity, behaviour and values along with other co-scholastic subjects like work education, art and health and physical education. The board has suggested that schools may replicate the structure described for Class 10 for Classes 6 to 9 for the purpose of uniformity.

    I like this decision. I believe that now we can actually be studying rather than diverting and wasting time in project work. I am happy with this change.
    CCE was a spoil spot. All the students just passed and there was no detention policy.
