New pattern of board exams announced for class X and XII
Jammu, February 08: The Jammu and Kashmir Board of School Education (JKBOSE) has decided to make some changes in the question papers of upcoming annual board examinations for class Xth and Class XIIth.
The decision of changing the pattern of question paper has been made after JKBOSE received criticism for introducing the series system in the board examination of both the classes.
The sources has explained that BOSE had introduced the series system with a view to raise the level of competition but as per students the some question papers became more easy after being set under series system while some others were difficult.
The students also alleged that the Series C and D question paper which were set for class 12th in Jammu Province was very tough in all the streams while Series A and B were easy to attempt unlike earlier when the question paper was set under only one series which was either easy to attempt or difficult.
Now, with the revised plan, the series system will remain intact but the question paper set under the system will be comparatively easy to attempt. Take for instance, if there are 10 questions in the paper, seven will be same in all the series while the other three will be slightly changed.
The changes have been confirmed by the Secretary of JKBOSE, Veena Pandita. She said that the BOSE has made these changes after the students made objections that there was no uniformity in toughness of all the papers in the series in annual board examinations and that one series carries easy questions while the other carries difficult questions.
