Panel to mull over uniform  question papers for Class XII

The Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry will set up a committee of secondary school boards to design a common question paper pattern for Class XII board examination to bring uniformity in the number of questions to be asked under various categories as well marks allotted to them.

A decision in this regard was taken at a crucial meeting of the state school boards here on Wednesday.

A total of 37 school boards, including the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations, participated in the meeting.

“The question paper pattern varies from one school board to another both in terms of the number and type of questions asked in a category as well as marks allotted to them. As a result, Class XII board examination scores of students of two different boards also vary,” official sources told Deccan Herald.

The committee will examine the issue and suggest how many questions should be asked under categories like multiple choice and short answer. It will also suggest how many questions can be asked for descriptive answers and how many marks should be allotted to them as some school boards ask multiple choice and short answer questions only.

“This will bring uniformity in the system of evaluation and scoring,” sources added.
