Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has modified the examination, assessment, and evaluation practices for students of classes 9, 10, 11, and 12. As per the official notice released by CBSE, there will be more competency-based questions and fewer rote memorization-based questions.

The CBSE said that the competency-based questions could be in the form of Multiple Choice Questions, Case-Based Questions, Course-Based integrated questions or any other types. Besides, the CBSE would continue with Objective Type questions as well as Short and Long Answer Type Questions.
The Board also asked schools to prepare students to understand the change in the question pattern ad said that it would release sample papers soon.

The existing question paper comprises 20% objective type questions including multiple-choice questions, 20% case-based or source-based integrated questions, and the remaining 60% are short or long answer questions. Following the modification, the question paper will comprise 30% competency-based questions including multiple-choice questions, case-based, and source-based integrated questions or any other types, 20% objective questions, and the remaining 50% will be short or long answer questions as per the existing pattern.
