The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will offer two-level examinations for English and Sanskrit languages from the next academic year. Currently, only the mathematics exam is conducted in two-level — standard and basic for class 10.
The suggestions are part of the new National Curriculum Framework (NCF) suggested under the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020.
Besides, CBSE had last year introduced MCQs or application-based questions following the NEP suggestions. This year, the board has decided to increase the number of such questions. In an official notice, the Ministry of Education informed that the number of competency-based questions for classes 10 and 12 board exams will increase by 10 percent every year in a phased manner.
CBSE will also introduce improvement examination from the year 2021, the Ministry of Education said in an official statement. It added, “The major portions of NEP will be covered under the new National Curriculum Framework (NCF) and centrally sponsored schemes. The groundwork for NCF is initiated and it is likely to be developed in the next academic session, that is 2021-22.”
Further, in-principle approval has been given for setting up the National Mission on Foundational Literacy and Numeracy Mission. A Committee has been formed for preparing a framework on FL&N and the codification of learning outcomes.
