New Delhi: By 2023, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will make significant changes to the examination pattern of 10th and 12th. The changes will be made to encourage students to think creatively and analytically. This information was provided at the School Education Summit hosted by India’s Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry (Assocham) by CBSE Secretary Anurag Tripathi.
He said that in this year’s 10th year, 20% of objective type questions and 10% of questions will be based on creative thinking. At the same time, creative, innovative and critical thinking will be based on the 2023 question papers for the 10th and 12th. We are going to test the capacity of kids to learn and understand.
He said that due to factors such as lack of employment in business topics, poor prices and lack of market stability, there are not many buyers. There is also a need to cultivate appropriate partnerships within the school system with key stakeholders including facilities, educators, families, and students. Tripathi suggested teachers who definitely need to be trained should be given more time by schools. As far as the new education policy is concerned, he said it aims to bridge the gap between core and vocational topics. To be one of five subjects, it requires professional subjects. It’d be a good move.
Meanwhile, Biswajit Saha, Director of Training and Skills Education, said schools need to focus on the ability of students and focus on employment, implement positive, project-based learning, and follow a child-centered methodology in the classroom.
