Ahmedabad: Secondary Gujarat and Council for Upper Secondary Education (GSHSEB) announced on Tuesday that the examination system for students in grades 9-12 that was in place in 2019-2020 will be reinstated for the 2022-23 academic year. The jury had changed the examination system in 2019-2020 due to the pandemic situation.
However, now that the situation has improved a bit, the council has decided to reinstate the old system.
In the 2019-2020 exam system, the score weighting was 20 points for objective questions and 80 points for descriptive questions.
This was changed to 30 points objective questions and 70 points descriptive questions.
Sources said that with the restoration of the old exam system, in class 10 exams, the final exam questionnaire will be 80 points consisting of objective questions with a weighting of 16 points and descriptive questions with a weighting of 64 points. The weighting of the internal evaluation scores will be 20.
Sources said the council will soon announce the new format for question papers that will be uploaded to its website.
Sources said the board circular making the change referenced three previous circulars. They said that only after studying these reference circulars will it be clearer whether there are more changes or not.
