Change in SSC exam pattern welcomed

Vastavam web: The proposed major changes in the examination pattern in SSC examinations from 2020 have been welcomed by many stakeholders. In the equal measure, the proposal has been opposed on the ground it may put the students at disadvantage. Every new system should be introduced from lower classes and it should be gradually extended to higher classes, according to critics of the proposal.

But the teachers and parents wondered as to why the government is in such a hurry to go ahead with the new system. Senior teachers recalled that the continuous and comprehensive education (CCE) system was also introduced from elementary classes and it was extended gradually to X class.

If the government introduce the system from class VI or at least class VIII, students will become accustomed to the new pattern and face the examinations without difficulty in X class.

Though the intention to go for analytical approach in answering the questions is good and improve the standards, they feel that students will be at a disadvantageous position as they are used to the old pattern. In the new pattern, there will not be multiple choice questions and students have to write answers in sentence form or in words.
