Listen to the news

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is on high alert for frequent errors in Class X and XII papers. The board has set up a committee to look into the possibility of similar mistakes in the future. This committee was set up to thoroughly review and improve the question paper preparation process. The board took this decision in the wake of repeated errors in the 10th and 12th class first term examination question papers. At least three errors surfaced in the CBSE questionnaires this month, one of which led to confusion in Parliament on Monday over a controversial reference to women.

In fact, the emancipation of women in the tenth grade English questionnaire on Saturday abolished parental authority over children and the mother could only gain respect from her minors by accepting her husband’s behavior. Controversy arose over the use of such sentences. CBSE and the government have also come under fire on social media. Congress leaders Priyanka Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi and Delhi Women’s Commission chairperson Swati Maliwal surrounded the government on similar questions in the questionnaire.

Congress president Sonia Gandhi will also raise the issue in Parliament. After intense confusion, the board removed the controversial portion from the questionnaire. In return the students were asked to give full marks. Earlier in the 12th class sociology paper, a question was asked about the 2002 Gujarat riots. There was a great deal of controversy over this. Even after this the board had to give its own explanation.

Teachers and academics have expressed concern over the new format of board evaluation, including training for question paper setters and mistakes in this year’s question papers. Educationist Sushma Singhvi told Amar Ujala that mistakes in CBSE question papers can be avoided. The board should train well their level paper-setters and moderators. The final paper prepared by the CBSE designated officer or panel should be checked to ensure that such question does not appear in the paper. After that it goes to the students to solve any paper. The CBSE should be careful not to ask such questions in a child exam that could hurt anyone’s feelings in the future and have a negative impact on their mentality.

Singhvi said this was the first time so many mistakes had come to light in the CBSE paper. Another reason for this may be the new evaluation format introduced by the board. It includes objective questions to test students’ cognitive skills. These changes made by the board have brought a somewhat difficult experience for teachers as well as students and their parents. Because the board made a lot of changes twice a year on this time‌ board exam, objective type questions. So I think it has become a little harder for everyone to adjust to all these changes.

10 years experience is required to prepare the question paper

  • The Board will keep the identity of the makers of the 10th and 12th question papers confidential. Paper-setters, moderators, secret officers, chief examiners and examiners are appointed by the CBSE Chairman in accordance with the examination rules.
  • According to board rules, such a person cannot set the paper for the year in which their next of kin will appear for the board exam. The paper question paper maker must have a post graduate degree in the relevant subject or allied subject. However he should have at least 10 years experience in teaching the relevant subject.
  • The person concerned should not be involved in teaching tuition or coaching in any private institution and should not be part of such other activities.
  • Board rules also require the paper-setter to ensure that the questionnaire is based on the subject’s syllabus, blueprint, design and textbooks and recommended books.
  • Paper makers are also expected not to write any question incorrectly or vaguely so that readers can misunderstand it.
