In the view of COVID-19 outbreak, the Central Board of Secondary Education has decided to change the question paper pattern for the class 10 and 12 board examinations.
Students appearing for the class 10 and 12 CBSE examinations will now have to answer 20 percent objective questions in the board examinations instead of the 10 percent of objective questions.
The new rule will be implemented by the board from the 2020-21- academic session.
The proposed CBSE examinations for the 29 subjects of class 10 and 12 students have been postponed. The rule regarding the 20 percent objective questions in the examination will not be applicable for the class 10 and 12 CBSE exams which have been postponed due to the COVID-19.
Along with the 20 percent objective questions, the board has also changed the chapters of the different subjects.
The board has also added a new option for Applied Mathematics to the syllabus of Mathematics at the secondary level.
