CBSE Board Exams 2024: More MCQs, 50% competency-based questions



The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has announced changes to its assessment scheme for the Board examinations 2024. Some modifications involve an increased focus on Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) and a reduction in the weightage given to short and long answer questions.

These changes are in line with the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 recommendations which prioritise creative and critical thinking capacities over rote learning. However, these changes may only apply to the 2023-24 academic session, as new reforms are expected to be introduced with the new National Curriculum Framework (NCF).

Further, the Board intends to implement competency-focused Education through more questions which can assess the application of concepts in real-life situations.
