Q. How should I prepare for the new pattern in CBSE class 10 to do well in the annual exams?
Ans. From the current academic session, i.e., 2017-2018, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has reintroduced the traditional Board Exam Pattern in class 10. According to the changed pattern, students of class 10 will have to study the whole syllabus for the final exam.
Structure of New Assessment:
As per the CBSE’s remodeled assessment structure, the new assessment scheme will have an 80 marks component for class 10 Board examination in all scholastic subjects along with a 20 marks component of Internal Assessment (IA).
- Periodic Tests (PT) with weightage of 10 marks each
- Notebook Submission of 5 marks
- Subject Enrichment Activities of 5 marks.
Three periodic written tests will be conducted in the entire academic year and the average of the best two will be considered for the final weightage. For the purpose of gradient learning, three periodic tests may be held as one being the mid-term test and other two being pre mid and post mid-term with the portion of syllabus cumulatively covered.
The chapters and topics to be read this year will remain the same as earlier. There’s no change in the content, but now you need to prepare your mind to retain the things for the whole year as what you have learned today will be a part of the syllabus for the final exam.
