Like any other competitive exam, Class 10th exams would be MCQ-based. Considering the covid scenario, this is a radical shift for both students and teachers. Schools have initiated orientation classes for conducting the exam. The paper will be based on case studies of MCQs. Students have to put in the effort to get used to it. Rote learning won’t be helpful in this exam. Responses will be marked in the OMR sheets, which would be directly uploaded on the CBSE portal after scanning on the same day. If we see things from the teacher’s perspective, preparing MCQ-based questions would be difficult in comparison to preparing a theoretical-based paper.


There is a lot of uncertainty regarding the new format of the examination. Parents and teachers are spending more time understanding the new format. The main objective of CBSE is to reduce the stress of students and teachers at this crucial time. 


New Format 


English Term 1 Exam


There would be three sections: 

Section A Reading: Consisting of 18 questions. Attempt 14 questions as per the instruction given in each question. 

Section B Grammar & Writing: Consisting of 12 questions. Attempt 10 questions. 

Section C Literature: Consisting of 30 questions. Attempt 26 questions as per the instructions given in each question. 

All questions are of equal mark 

There will be no negative marking

Section A: 20 Questions of 1 mark each, attempt any 16 questions 

Section B: 20 questions of 1 mark each, attempt any 16 questions

There will be no negative marking 


Social Science Term 1 Exam

Section A: 24 questions, attempt any 20 questions 

Section B: 22 questions, attempt any 18 questions

How it is bringing a new shift in learning? 


The academic year 2019-20 and 2020-21 were tough for children, teachers, and parents. Many schools were facing the dilemma to hold or not to hold examinations. The Foundation of a student is based on his or her 10th examination results. It is purely a matter of a new shift in learning as there is no better alternative in conducting the exams. CBSE has tried to incorporate all the essence of learning. Considering the new format, the learning would be more assertive and formative. It would be based on conceptualization and clarity. There is an inherent acceptance of new learning to the teachers as well as students to evaluate the student’s efforts. The main objective of the new guideline is to regulate formative assessment than a summative assessment that would enhance today’s coaching culture.
