Board examinations are scheduled for May 15, 2021, for which later directions are issued. Students are now allowed to visit schools for any doubts, and now, in these sessions, the government has allowed them to do homework from ninth to twelfth grades. Teachers must manage each student’s homework portfolios used to identify students in the internal assessment.
The curriculum was recently reduced by the Department of Education, and in board exams, 20% of the marks rely on an internal assessment that includes homework and 80% on board exams. For classes XI and XII the number of clinical trials is included separately from the internal examination.
Schools are advised to invite students to practice for practical papers in school laboratories at least once a week for classes XI and XII. Infectious guidelines should be followed when performing clinical trials.
The government has decided to include objective questions in final exams, boards and general examinations. Even in short answers and essay-type questions, students will be given more options to choose between different questions. Guidelines have also been issued to other classes to prepare students for the exam pattern.
