CBSE Introduces New Exam Pattern For Classes 6th to 9th
Schools affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), will now have to follow a ‘uniform system of assessment’ from the upcoming academic year (2017-18). CBSE has formally discontinued the continuous and comprehensive evaluation (CCE) scheme for classes 6th to 9th.
CBSE on Tuesday called for the implementation of a ‘uniform system of assessment, examination and report card’ that aims to regulate standard of teaching and evaluation in CBSE affiliated schools. The board has replaced (CCE) system for classes 6th to 9th which had been followed since 2009.
CBSE students will be under “uniform assessment” process from class 6th onwards. The process provides a two semester system complete with half yearly and annual examinations. From examinations to report cards, now all the schools will have to follow the CBSE’s template.
“To make students more confident about facing the Class 10 board examinations when they join the upper-primary stage in Class 6, we have decided to implement a uniform system of assessment, examination pattern and reports cards…” said CBSE chairman RK Chaturvedi.
Under this system, two periodical tests of 10 marks will be conducted per semester. CBSE officials announced that it will help to improve the standard of education, prepare students for their board examinations and assist easy migration of the students from one school to another school.
