This common question format for Mathematics and Science subjects will be brought into effect for Class 11 from the upcoming academic year 2013-14 onwards. Their main motto is to bridge the gap among the different boards.
Through this act, the boards can fix a special number of objective type, analytical or subjective type questions, though the content can vary from one board to another.
The Minister of State for Human Resource department Shashi Tharoor says that introducing a common design of question paper in class 12 would take some time, as the decision would depend on the feedback of the pilot of Class 11 and subject to the acceptance of all state education boards as well.
He further informed that Implementing a common design question paper was discussed at length at a committee in CBSE on June 28 2012, for which the sub-committee was set up recently.
He ensured that the council of Boards of School Education in India (COBSE) and the NCERT have already developed a common question format for mathematics and science. And that almost all the boards have implemented it.
Well, it confirmed that the common format scheme shall be implemented for the class 12 also. Which is mostly to be expected by next academic year.
