Here are the highlight of the changes
- CBSE has added two-mark questions in the new format. Earlier, it used to have only one-mark, four-mark and six-mark questions. The two-markers will be worth a total of 16 marks.
2) The new ratio of easy average and difficult will be 20% easy, 60% average and 20% difficult.
3) There will be no overall choice in the question paper. However, 30% internal choices will be given in
4 marks and 6 marks questions.
4) Question paper design has been changed. There will be 29 questions in the paper with increased focus on Understanding questions. The number of higher-order thinking skills (HOTS) questions has been reduced to 10%. HOT will be split into two sections of 1 four marks question and 3 two marks question
It is expected that with this new format, the pressure on the students will decrease as the new marking scheme will definitely help students to score better marks.
