From the current academic session, i.e., 2017-2018, the dual assessment scheme in CBSE Class 9 has been duiscontinued and like in Class 10, students of Class 9 will have to appear for the final examination at the end of the year that will include the complete syllabus for all the subjects. As per the CBSE’s remodeled assessment structure, the Assessment scheme will have an 80 marks component for Class 9 Annual examination in all scholastic subjects along with a 20 marks component of Internal Assessment (IA). IA comprises Periodic Tests (PT) with weightage of 10 marks, Notebook Submission of 5 marks and Subject Enrichment Activities of 5 marks.
The changed assessment structure in Class 9 will help the students acquaint with the examination structure that followed in CBSE Class 10. So, students need to be more inquisitive and alert about the new pattern and prepare with effective strategies to score optimum marks in this class.
