Common curriculum and papers for all boards
The Union ministry of human resource development (HRD) has set up an inter-board working group (IBWG), comprising eight boards, to work out the details for stopping of moderation and upward revision, or spiking, of marks.
It is also planned that all boards will move towards adopting a common curriculum. To avoid confusion, the grace marks policy will be uploaded on websites, and marks and grades for extracurricular subjects will be given separately. It is also planned that all boards will share question papers with CBSE to bring about uniformity in assessment.
