New exam pattern for 2020


CBSE has released the revised exam pattern for CBSE Board Exam 2020 to make the evaluation process more student-friendly. One of the major changes includes introduction of internal assessment for all subjects along with practical examination of majority of subjects. Besides, the board also plans to reduce the overall number of questions asked for a few subjects by 30%. CBSE is also increasing the number of objective type questions in the board exam. There might be a provision for increase in the internal choices for the students within the question papers as well.

Additionally, the Board has also introduced two level of Mathematics Exams for Class 10 students from 2020 onwards, which are Mathematics – Standard and Mathematics – Basic. The existing syllabus for Mathematics will be termed as Standard syllabus while Mathematics – Basic will be an easier version of it. The examination paper for Mathematics – Basic will also be easier as compared to the standard examination. Students who fail to clear the Mathematics – Standard examination will have to option to appear for the Compartmental exam in either of the two levels.
