GSHSEB New Exam Pattern: Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board have done major changes in test pattern today. Now, more theory based questions will be included in the question papers. BN Rajgor, GSHSEB Joint Director confirmed the “much-needed alterations” in a press release statement yesterday.
Exam pattern changes will only be implemented at the beginning of 2019-2020 session. Alterations have been observed in all four upper standards for total affiliated schools i.e. Class 9, 10, 11 (Science) and 12 (Science). Board of a controller of examinations and other experts has concluded with the fact that overall pass percentage or overall results may decline (by percentage).
But, as per Rajgor’s statement, who was District Education Officer of Bharuch earlier, the board was worried about crumbling writing skills of Gujarat Board students. MCQs based question papers are beneficial from the point of scrutinizing authority but alters the writing habit of students a lot.
