Changes in the pattern of question papers for the Class 12th Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) exam, and a clear move up from 'objective type' questions to 'application-based' ones, will make it fundamentally harder to score in the future. The counting of questions in subjects, for example, political science, economics, business studies and accountancy has been diminished; in the meantime, the quantity of "long answer" questions has been increased and two-three markers lessened. Also the greater part of this, say teachers, got to be known when the sample papers turned out.
"The counting of questions has been lessened from 31 to 27 in political science. Presently there are five one-mark and five two-mark questions rather than 10 of each one," says Tania Joshi, Principal, Indian School. "Kids who are beneath normal scored in these. Presently there are more analytical questions. The checking will likewise be more subjective." "We got to think about the progressions when the exam papers came in and those came very late this year in November or December," says Joshi. The expanded stress on long-answers will please school teachers particularly of the humanities and social sciences - yet Joshi contends that bringing sudden changes additionally vanquishes the reason for CCE (continuous comprehensive evaluation) which was to lessen stress.
The mathematics paper will convey 26 questions rather than 29; business studies, 25 questions rather than 30. All the more worryingly, there is "no choice in the six-mark long question". "There had been a choice in every question before," says Pooja Bahl, head of the commerce department, likewise at the Indian School, "We got to know when the specimen papers were released in December. But the round saying there won't be a decision came in January," says Bahl. There is additionally a reasonable move in emphasis from short-answer objective type questions to the long analytical kind. "About half the questions in the accountancy sample paper tests candidates on their higher order thinking skills (HOTS). They are application-based or interdisciplinary and don't test the child on simply understanding. In business contemplates, 60% to 70% of the paper is of this level," says Bahl including, "A few students officially performing admirably are getting a charge out of them. At the same time we're apprehensive they'll affect execution of students who require some investment to absorb."
