According to CBSE official this change in Class 10 and 12 paper pattern will take next three to four months to get crystallise. But the board has already begun its preparation by making the changes in the pattern from 2020.

“The questions will be more in the nature of problem-solving There will be more short questions (between 1 to 5 marks). The stress would be on probing the critical thinking abilities of students and test actual learning outcomes rather than allow students to score high marks by virtue of rote,” said a senior HRD ministry official.
