According to principals and teachers, the new pattern will be more student-centered, transparent, technology-dependent and futuristic.
The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) has decided to go the same way. Students will have to answer multiple choice questions for numbers 40 to 80 depending on the subject.
Sujoy Biswas, principal of Rammohun Mission High School affiliated to CISCE, said, “The council has organized a series of training sessions to guide teachers on the new pattern and sent sample questions after the decision was announced, which was very helpful for students to understand the type of question. We distributed sample questions among the students and arranged a few mock tests so that they would know how to deal with the new method.
Case-based MCQs have been introduced in the exams and most teachers say that the main purpose of this format will be to test the analytical strength of the students. Moreover, in the MCQ pattern, students need to provide reasoning, which will help them deal with competitive exams in the future.
Jonaki Mukherjee, a social science teacher at CBSE-affiliated DPS Ruby Park, said, “Students can get good marks and they have adopted new methods. But we had to work hard to prepare them. We have given many exams following the new pattern so that the students are well prepared for the exams. However, OMR sheets are not new for students participating in the Olympiad.
Tanushree Bandyopadhyay, a science teacher at CISCE affiliated schools, said, “MCQ saves a lot of time in pattern assessment. Moreover, using technology for evaluation will, hopefully, help us a lot. ”
CBSE has published the date sheet of the first term of class X and XII and the main subject examinations will start from the end of November and CISCE has postponed the examinations for the first semester.
