With an aim to discourage rote learning and develop critical thinking among students, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has planned to introduce changes in the examination pattern for Class 10th & 12th from 2019-20 session, Union Human Resource Development Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank said on Monday.

The aim is to reduce the education in the number of questions, more internal choices, increase the number of objective type questions and reduction in subjective questions and introduction of internal assessment in all subjects.

“The internal choices will be implemented on 33 per cent of the questions for the students. The one-mark objective type questions will be around 25 per cent of the questions in all subjects. Internal assessment will count for 20 per cent marks in subjects in which there is no practical assessment,” the Minister further stated.

The changes will be effected for class 10th and 12th exams which will be held in 2020.
