Madhya Pradesh Board of Secondary Education (MPBSE) has changed the examination pattern for class 10th and 12th. Additionally, the board has also reduced the syllabus for the board examination in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. The MP board also clarified that the revised examination pattern will introduce some key changes in the exam question paper.
As per the revamped examination pattern, there will be no long-form questions in the upcoming examinations. Hence, the new pattern will consist of these types of questions – objective, subjective and analytical questions. The highest marks given to each question is four, furthermore, MCQ type questions have also been added and the length of the answers have been reduced.
So, now, there will be 30 objective type questions for each mark in MPBSE 10th, 12th exam 2021 for all subjects. There will be five subjective-type questions of three marks. Out of these five, students will have an option to answer only three. The long answer type questions will be of a maximum of four marks in which students will need to write answers in about 125-150 words. These will be analytical questions in which students will have the option to answer any of the six questions.
The new exam pattern for MPBSE 10th, 12th board exam 2021 has been uploaded on the board’s official website, mpbse.nic.in.

Students who are preparing for the upcoming board exams must prepare for it as per the revised exam pattern, and the blueprint of the question paper provided.
It has not yet been confirmed by the MPBSE Exam Controller, whether these changes will remain for next year or not. Like the MP board, many other state boards have also narrowed down the exam syllabus to reduce the exam burden of the candidate. Since, mid-March, schools all over India were closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Though online classes were started however many students did not have access to online education due to the lack of resources. Considering all these factors, many state boards, like MP, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Odisha, and national boards like CBSE, CISCE, etc decided to cut down the syllabus by 30% or so.
