The CBSE has laid out the changes for the new academic session 2021-22 and would be introducing Competency Based Questions.

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has introduced new changes to its assessment and evaluation process for the next academic session in line with the New Education Policy. The evaluation criteria, released by the CBSE, gives further details on board’s move to Competency Based Education or CBE. More competency-based questions or questions that assess the application of concepts in real-life or unfamiliar situations will be part of the question papers of Classes 10, 12 board exams and Classes 9, 11 final exams as per the notification from the CBSE.

CBSE in a letter to all the heads of CBSE-affiliated schools has laid out the changes for the new academic session and said that it would be introducing Competency Based Questions. These could be in the form of Multiple Choice Questions, Case-Based Questions, Course-Based integrated questions or any other types. Also, the CBSE would continue with Objective Type questions as well as Short and Long Answer Type Questions.

 However, the overall marks and duration of examination will remain unchanged. 

The schools have been asked to prepare the students with regards to the changes as defined by the board. The CBSE will also release Sample Papers soon.

Due to an increase in the surge of Covid-19 cases in 2020, the CBSE had reduced the syllabus of the senior classes by 30 per cent to make up for the academic loss. As per the curriculum for 2021-22, those deleted chapters have been restored.

This year, the CBSE is yet to decide on the evaluation and assessment criteria for CBSE Class 10 Board Exams 2021, which were cancelled due to the pandemic and decision on the CBSE Class 12 Board Exams 2021 will be taken after review in the first week of June 2021.
