CBSE "OPEN BOOK EXAM"

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is set to introduce an 'open book' section in the final exams for classes IX, X and XI from the current academic year and for class 12 boards from next year (2014-15).  By Open Book it is not meant that the books can be taken inside the examination hall and answers can be copied from it.
For the open book section, students will be given case studies in each subject four months in advance. All questions will be from the given material. This section will carry 20% weightage.
The proposed change, aimed at enhancing the quality of education, is likely to come into effect for the 2014 board exams. The pattern would be applicable for all subjects in Class 10 and for selected subjects for Class 12.
The open book section will begin for all subjects in classes IX and X but at the plus two level, CBSE has identified four subjects: Biology, Economics, Geography and a language.
The open book exam will be part of the Summative Assessment II for class IX and also for those students who opt for school-based class X exams under the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation ( CCE) scheme instead of the board exams. The modifed version is called ‘Pre Announced Test’ (PAT).
