The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), moving ahead with its new motto of ‘assessment as learning’, has decided to prepare a question bank for classes 9 to 12. In this regards, the board has requested all its affiliated schools to submit the question papers which schools prepare for the term end examinations for classes 9 and 11, and for internal examinations for classes 10 and 12.
The question bank will include previous years papers and will be available on an IT platform which will be user-friendly. The question bank will be available both for students and teachers. Thus, this will not only be helpful for students to enhance their learning process, but also for teachers to incorporate in their pedagogy and assessments.
CBSE released a circular requesting all its affiliated schools to submit the question papers structured internally for Classes 9 to 12
CBSE under the subject “Contribution in the development of question banks for classes IX to XII-reg” released a circular stating that “Schools/Group of schools are requested to kindly send CBSE the class wise, subject wise and topic wise questions from the question papers of as many past years as available with you, in the format attached with this advisory.”
