Changes in CBSE Assessment and Evaluation

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has announced changes in evaluation and assessment in accordance with the New Education Policy 2020 and introducing the concept of Competency Based Education (CBE) from the academic year 2021-22. Students can expect more competency-based questions or testing application of concepts in real-life or hypothetical scenarios. The new evaluation system will be applicable for 10th, 12th Board Examinations as well as 9 and 10 final examinations. Competency based questions will constitute 20% of the total questions which may be in the form of multiple choice, case based and course based integrated questions. Twenty per cent will be objective type and remaining 60% will be short and long answer questions. However, the overall marks and duration of examination will remain unchanged.
