Come 2014, The majority of educational boards conducting class 12 exams across the country will have a common design of question papers to make the school-leaving exams as uniform as possible in terms of difficulty.
The Board of IIT had initially urged the Central Board of Secondary Education to work on a common design of question paper for Class XII exams for subjects Mathematics and Science. To which , now different education boards have decided to take a call and make the exam papers on the mentioned subjects on the same line as the other boards.
The COBSE or the Council of Boards of School Education in India, which is a common plank for all educational boards in India, has instituted a sub-committee that will comprise of state board members from Assam, Maharashtra, Bihar, Kerela and Rajasthan to work on the common frame work of the question paper.
The idea is to have a core curriculum, where there would be a common design of question papers , and the difficulty level as well as the marking system will be equivalent.
The plan is to have a pilot run , that would be introduced by five state boards for class eleventh, and based on the experience, it would be introduced in class twelfth starting 2014.The reason for this ambitious change is to provide a level playing platform to all the students .
