NEP 2020's Approach to Redesigning Board Exams

The major issue in current board exams is the overemphasis on rote memorization, which fails to address the student's critical thinking and problem-solving abilities.

NEP 2020 aims at re-structuring board exams with a few amendments such as:

  • A deeper understanding of subjects promotes holistic development.
  • Flexibility in choosing the subject of their interests.
  • Tests primarily core capacities/ competencies rather than content memorization.
  • Best of two attempts: One for the main exam and the other for improvement.
  • The mode of exams will be annual/semester/modular, which reduces pressure on students.
  • Redesigning of question papers in two parts: one is objective with MCQ, and the other is descriptive.
