Published 2 weeks ago



CBSE has introduced some changes in the examination pattern for class 12 in the academic session 2019-20. As per the new exam pattern, CBSE has given more weight to the school-based/internal assessment. Major change will be observed in the questions paper format in the board exam 2020. Question papers will have more number of objective type questions.

CBSE changed the examination pattern with an aim to
• Discourage students from rote learning
• Develop analytical skills and reasoning abilities among students
• Produce better results and improve the academic quality of institutions

CBSE Class 12 Exam Pattern: What are the major changes? Internal assessment in all subjects
Earlier, the internal assessment was not involved in all the subjects of class 12 like Maths, languages, Political Science. As per the new assessment scheme, now, about 20% marks will be kept for internal assessment in all these subjects. Thus, form the March 2020 board exam, the CSBE board paper will carry 80% marks. However, for the Science subjects and fine arts the weightage will remain unchanged.

Format of internal assessment in CBSE Class 12 Maths subject is as follows:
     
        Unit Name                                                            Marks
I. Relations and Functions                                             08
II. Algebra                                                                         10
III. Calculus                                                                       35
IV. Vectors and Three - Dimensional Geometry        14
V. Linear Programming                                                  05
VI. Probability                                                                  08
        Total                                                                         80
  Internal Assessment                                                 20

School exams to weigh 10 marks in final results
In the Board Exam 2020, 10 marks from school examinations will count towards the total marks in a subject. In class 12 Mathematics and English subjects, board exam will be conducted for 80 marks and remaining 20 marks will be kept for the internal assessment. If you talk about Mathematics, 10 marks out of 20 will be taken from the results of the school exams. The remaining 10 marks will be taken from internal evaluation.

English to have 20 marks for Assessment for Speaking and Listening (ASL)
In Class 12 English subject, 20 marks for internal assessment will be taken from ASL. This means students will be tested for their English language listening and speaking skills, on the basis of which they may secure maximum 20 marks. ASL will be conducted by the external examiners.

More Number of Objective Type questions
This comes as a major relief for class 12 students that CBSE will be introducing 25% multiple choice questions (MCQs) in all the subjects in board exam 2020. Thus, out of 80, only 60 marks will be given to the subjective type questions where students are required to write the detailed answers.
 
Increased Number of Internal Choices in Different Questions
Board had already introduced more number of internal choices in 2019 Board Exams where the internal options in all sections of question paper were increased by 33%. The same practice shall continue henceforth for all subjects in the class 12 board examination 2020.
 
Practical exam may be conducted at external centres
CBSE is think over to conduct practical examinations at external centres same as for the theory exams from the 2020 board exams.
