CBSE political science paper worrying students and teachers

New Delhi: More than changes in the format of any other paper, political science paper seems to be worrying students and teachers the most. Students who've written their pre-board and mock exams in the older 35-question pattern are concerned about what the changes mean for their time-management strategies.

"We've been conditioned to write the 35-questions papers," says a 12th-grade humanities student who discovered there are changes from a report published a few days ago.

"I have trained myself to finish the one and two-mark questions in half-and-hour. You have to think more and write more for the long answers. Those who struggled to complete the old paper will never finish this one." "This is an absolutely different format altogether," says Hema Chakraborty, student at The Indian School, "It takes time just to get into the groove of it."

Schools don't agree on whether the Central Board of Secondary Education informed them in time or not. Ameeta Mulla Wattal, principal, Springdales School, Pusa Road, says the changes were announced in the "Highlights of Curriculum Document 2014-15 for the examination to be held in March, 2015" dated, June 6, 2014.

"The circular's been out for nine months. Schools should keep checking the CBSE website and not wait for paper copies to arrive," says Mulla-Wattal. Vandana Chandoke and Abha Malik who teach the subject at Delhi Public School, RK Puram and Sanskriti respectively, say they've been setting 27-question papers since 2013.
