– 10th and 12th board exams will be easy
. Major changes will be made in the board exams of class 10th and 12th. The importance of board examinations will be minimized. There are several important suggestions. Such as conducting examinations twice a year, dividing them into two parts objective and explanatory categories. The main focus in the board examination will be on the knowledge test so that the tendency of rote in students is over. Students are always under pressure regarding board exams and depend on coaching to get more marks. But in the future they can get freedom from it. The education policy states that various boards will prepare a practical model of board examinations in the coming times. Such as annual, semester and modular board examinations.
Under the new policy, examinations will also be held in classes three, five and eighth. While the 10th and 12th board examinations will continue in changed format.
be changes in children’s report cards to assess children’s performance in schools. They will be assessed at three levels. One will be a student himself, another is a classmate and the third is his teacher. National Assessment Center-Parakh will be created which will periodically test the learning ability of children. About two crore children who have dropped out of education through 100% enrollment will be admitted again.
