Some changes to board exam papers introduced by CBSE
This year, CBSE has introduced some changes to the exam pattern/marking scheme for Class-12 papers.
Some of the changes include reduction in the number of certain questions, more internal question choices, more objective-type questions, and the introduction of internal assessment for all subjects instead of just a few subjects.
There will be more number of questions that are designed to test problem-solving/critical thinking abilities.
CBSE had earlier released the new marking scheme and sample paper for the students who are going to appear for the 2020 Class-12 Economics board exam. These will help candidates to get a clear picture of the paper pattern and prepare accordingly for the exam.
