CBSE Board Exam 2024: A Big News Coming Amid CBSE Board Exams. According to media reports, CBSE is considering the concept of Open Book Exams (OBE) towards the end of this year.

New Delhi: Amidst the CBSE 10th and 12th board exams, there is a big news emerging. It is that CBSE is considering the concept of Open Book Exams (OBE). According to a report by Indian Express, CBSE is contemplating conducting Open Book Exams (OBE) for all students from classes 9 to 12, as per the recommendations mentioned in the newly issued National Curriculum Framework (NCF) last year. The board plans to conduct a trial of open-book tests in its select schools at the end of the year. These tests will cover subjects like English, Mathematics, and Science for classes 9 and 10, and English, Mathematics, and Biology for classes 11 and 12. In this experiment, students will be assessed based on the time taken by them and their performance in the exam.

What is an Open Book Exam? An open-book exam is one in which children will not have to take the exam with closed books, but they will have to take the exam by opening the book. In an open-book exam, students will be allowed to bring and refer to their notes, textbooks, or other study material during the exam. This exam is not an assessment of students’ knowledge but a new method of assessing students’ understanding of subjects. Unlike traditional closed-book formats, open-book exams allow students to refer to study material, notes, and other useful sources while answering questions.

Test Run Until November-December According to Indian Express, a proposal has been made to conduct the pilot this year in November-December, and based on its experience, CBSE will decide whether this form of assessment should be adopted in all its schools from class 9 to 12. This pilot will focus on assessing students’ high-level thinking skills, application, analysis, critical and creative thinking, and problem-solving abilities.

CBSE to Implement by June CBSE is planning to complete the design and development of the Open Book Exam pilot by June and has decided to consult Delhi University for this. DU had started the Open Book Test during the COVID pandemic in August 2020, although it faced significant opposition.
