Tamil Nadu CBSE Board Exam Pattern to Change
Students who appear for classes 10 and 12 government
examinations from next year will find it difficult to crack the examination as
questions will test the students’ analytical skills rather than rote learning.
The new exam pattern will be implemented for all classes in a phased manner.
According to highly-placed sources in the school education
department, the state will follow CBSE’s examination pattern by which only
students with good knowledge would pass the examination.
“We have complaints from various quarters that our school
education system cultivates only rote learning and a student who scores top
marks in class 12 fails to clear his exam in college. Taking this into
consideration, the chief minister has asked us to revamp the school education
system in such a way that state board students, too, get well groomed like their
CBSE counterparts,” the official said.
The school education department constituted a committee with
G. Balasubramanian, former director (academics), CBSE, as chairman to recommend
changes that needed to be effected in the exams. The committee is expected to
submit its report by this month-end and this will go to chief minister J.
Jayalalithaa to get her approval for implementation.
