Stop teaching to the test says CBSE Chairman, the board has decided to discontinue the practice of providing blue print, sample question papers and marking schemes in classes IX and X with effect from Summative Assessment-II (SA-II ) of 2012-13 as the release of blue prints and the sample question papers indirectly promotes teaching to the test.

Stop teaching to the test

The weightings in the revised format will be assigned to entire units as mentioned in the curriculum as an alternative of chapter wise weighting given earlier. There will be a more flexible design or structure of assessment instead of a detailed blue print, which used to divide the curriculum into exceedingly narrower parts. The SA-II , which will be held in March 2013, will not be based on blue prints and sample questions papers and will rather follow a more comprehensive structure of examination and flexible patterns.

The structure of examination along with unit wise weighting for English, Hindi, Sanskrit, mathematics , science and social science together with pools of exemplar items will be shortly available on the academic websites of CBSE (www.cbseacademic .in),  and will also be circulated to all the schools affiliated to the board.

  1. What the hell v find tis difficult already and now ur gonna cut that too>?????? I hate to say this but this is absolutely bull shit I wish this is taken back but on the positive side those book nerds are gonna stop referring only these stuff but still the other children who are interested in other topics rather than studying life’s depends on this and ur gonna cut that Wow Nice decision To CBSE chairman GO to HELL!

  2. somehow agree vth u also.. bt wht the chairman has decided is also good.. bot in the way that it will cause harm to students.. but its poaitive side is that it will lead the teachers to make the students aware of all the topics instead of just making them aware about only those topics which are likely to be appear in the board exam.. The moto of teachers should be to impart knowledge among students not to. just make them pass in the exams..
