India’s Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is changing the examination pattern for grade six to 10 students from the next academic year, which will begin in April in the UAE.
The board has discontinued the formative and summative assessment pattern for all these grades and it will now be compulsory for grade 10 students to take board examination with cumulative portions for the entire year.
The CBSE’s decision to revert to its old assessment scheme will be implemented from the academic year 2017-2018 starting in April. This will impact the pattern of learning and assessment in majority of the Indian schools in the UAE that follow the CBSE curriculum.
The new system will impact thousands of students studying in 65 CBSE schools in the UAE.
