  Aug 30, 2023

School Exam Reforms: Shaping Holistic Education


Q: What's the focus of the New Curriculum Framework (NCF)?

A: The NCF, aligned with the New Education Policy (NEP) of 2020, aims to address long-standing gaps in the school education system and adopt global best practices.
 

Q: What are the shortcomings of the current assessment framework?

A: The current system promotes rote learning and relies heavily on annual exam performance, neglecting holistic development. Board exams for classes X and XII have become stressful for students.
 

Q: How does the new norm of conducting board exams twice a year impact students?

A: Conducting exams twice a year and allowing students to choose their better score empowers them. The policy's goal is on-demand exams, enabling students to showcase true competencies, moving away from memorization.
 

Q: What's notable about the approach to subjects and streams?

A: The new policy aims to blur lines between arts and sciences, curricular and extracurricular activities, and vocational and academic streams. Students can now choose subjects they are passionate about.
 

Q: How does the policy address language learning?

A: While flexibility is encouraged, studying at least one Indian language is mandatory, emphasizing the importance of language skills.
 

Q: How will the transition to the new framework occur?

A: The transition, effective from the 2024 academic session, involves significant work for teachers and staff. New textbooks and a comprehensive test item bank using suitable software will facilitate this change.
 

Q: What's the anticipated impact of these reforms?

A: The reforms aim to nurture well-rounded individuals and shift from memorization to understanding. While challenges exist, the ultimate goal is to create a more holistic and responsive education system.
