NEW DELHI: Ushering in what could be the biggest change in the country’s school examination system, the Central Board of Secondary Education will introduce an ‘open book’ section in the final exams for classes 9, 10 and 11 from the current academic year and for class 12 boards from next year (2014-15).
For the ‘open book’ section — which doesn’t mean books can be taken inside the exam hall — 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.
