Few months back, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) announced the restoring of class X Board exam. Hence, the students, who will now take admission in class X will be assessed on the basis of the new scheme.

The Board has not stated any reason for the remodeling of the scheme. However, the depleting performance of the students seems like a sure reason for the same. Also, as per the statistics, more than 50% of the population has already opt the for the Board exams this year.


The new assessment module will evaluate the performance of students on the basis of the Board Examination, as well as Internal Assessment. The exam for each subject will be of 80 marks. Whereas, the remaining 20 marks will be given by teachers after observing the performance throughout the session.

To qualify, the students will be required to score 33% marks in the exam and internal assessment. From the date of declaration of the result upto three months will be given for submitting grievances against internal assessment can be submitted. However, the discretion of the Board will be required for the same.

To optimize the benefits of reintroducing class X board exam, CBSE has also introduced uniform assessment scheme.  Under it, a homogenous assessment and exam pattern will be followed by 18,688 CBSE affiliated schools. It will be implemented from class VI to XI.

The compulsion of Board examinations might seem unfair to some students. However, when looked at the big picture, it prepares students for the competition which they will be facing in life ahead.

  1. It’s a very good step for students’ good future. I agree with this b’coz from my view it’s a very good decision. It’s brights our future. I think, we all have to support this. ya I know many students are not good in study but don’t worry we all have to work hard and pass the exam with gd percentage. So, work hard and all the best those who give the exam in 2018.

  2. Now education board should take stricter measure,rather then concentrating on quantity they should concentrate on quality,don’t listen students as they are emotional black mailer,even in certain board they have 50 marks for M.C.Q..,this is for what?remove this pattern, majority of the question on descriptive base,so students will have to develop writing skill for attending these types of questions..Great job done by board,

  3. CBSE exams are at the doorstep now. Poor children are suffering and struggling. Especially for Social Studies. It’s a big head ache. How could the children be able to study the vast 22 lessons of social together? And beyond that the students who have taken second language as Arabic and Malayalam have only 1 or 2 days before social studies exam.
    What a pressure !!!
