The CBSE Board 2019 examinations will commence from 15 February, Friday.
According to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) data, around 13 lakh students would appear for the CBSE Class 12 examination. Over 18 lakh students have been registered to appear for CBSE Class 10 examinations this year.
CBSE Board 2019 Examinations Pattern
With the introduction of the new pattern, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will conduct the examinations for vocational subjects first.
Examinations for all the academic subjects will begin from 2 March 2019 and will end on 4 April, 2019.
This year, the CBSE has also made some ‘student-friendly’ changes in the question paper pattern in the CBSE Board 2019 Examinations for both Class 10 and 12.
Objective type questions in the papers have been increased. Along with this, there will be more options in the question papers.
It has been reported that in 2019 board exams, around 25% of the total questions will be objective type against the previous pattern which had 10% of them.
Additionally, students would have 33% more question options to choose from.
To facilitate the attempting of the question paper in a more systematic manner, each question paper will be divided into sub-sections.
There will be a section for all the objective type questions which will be carrying more marks.
The new pattern would help students score better.
Instructions Before Examinations
Ahead of the exams, CBSE has laid down some important instructions for students along with a list of things allowed and not allowed inside the examination hall.
The board has also requested the wards and their parents to follow certain rules before and during the examinations in a letter to the parents of wards who are appearing for the examinations.
Apps Promoting Safety
To avoid the leaking of question papers, the Board will track the centre superintendents who would collect “confidential material” via a mobile application.
This app will track the movement of centre superintendents, right from collection of question papers to reaching exam centres and opening packets.
