A recent report has emerged as per which, Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will ask four types of questions in the short answer type questions section. Published in newspapers today, the report says that there will be multiple choice questions, one word answer type questions, fill in the blanks, and match the following based questions in the section.
A leading daily has published a report on the matter and confirms that recently the board had conducted workshops all across the country. In these workshops, the format of objective questions was prepared for board exams. There, CBSE mentioned asking multiple choice questions in the short question type section.
However recently the board has clarified that CBSE board exam 2020 will be on the basis of sample papers published at cbse.nic.in, cbseacademic.in. Which is true, and the report also says it. The report further says that next year also exams will be as per sample papers, and in those, one words and fill in the blanks will be asked with MCQs.
After looking at the report, a few sample question papers of CBSE were analysed.
If you look at the CBSE 12th maths sample paper 2020, then section A contains 1 mark questions. Where, questions 1 to 10 are multiple choice questions, then questions 11 to 15 are fill in the blanks type questions, and questions 16 to 20 are short questions.
Exactly the same pattern is in CBSE 10th maths sample paper 2020.
Therefore the report is true and CBSE has already provided the information indirectly through its sample papers. And now through its workshops, it has spread more awareness about it.
The board emphasizes that students should go through the sample papers before exam in order to know exactly what type of questions will be asked in exam. CBSE had released the latest sample papers for class 10th as well as 12th students last month. They are available for download, along with marking scheme, at cbseacademic.in.
Each student has different subject combinations. And the syllabus, question paper pattern, marking scheme is different for all. Students should first of all refer the official syllabus or curriculum to know their syllabus, then study them from NCERT textbooks, and finally understand the type of questions that will be asked, from the sample papers.
The board has also clarified that the sample papers are more important than the syllabus because sample papers are latest, and curriculum was published earlier. Also, that in NCERT textbooks the colored boxes which says this is not a part of syllabus are also a a part of the syllabus if it comes under the topics given in official syllabus. Recently the board has also issued the passing marks details for board exams.
CBSE is soon going to release the class 10th and 12th board exam date sheet 2020. Already they have announced that the exams will start on February 15, and end on March 31, 2020. Practical exams will start on January 1 and end on February 7, 2020.
