CBSE has introduced changes in the exam pattern for the 2024 board exam and also for classes IX and XI. As part of the changes, the number of competency-based questions has been increased for all classes, while the weightage for short and long answer-type questions has been reduced.
FOR classes IX and XI, the competency-based questions will now have 50% weightage compared with the earlier 40%. For classes X and XII, for the board exam in 2024, the competency-based questions will hold 40% weightage, as against the 30% earlier. The objective-type questions will be MCQs with a weightage of 20% and for short-answer and long-answer-type questions, the weightage will be 40% as compared to 50% last year.
The number of competency-based questions has been increased mainly in view of entrance exams for colleges/entry to universities. But the long-answer questions test the real knowledge.
