The Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) chairman Gangadhar Mhamane said, The English language paper in the SSC board exam will have more objective type questions from next year.
The board decided to change the papers format, and make it easier to improve the pass percentage in the subject. Most students score poorly in English and Mathematics. The English language theory paper in SSC carries 80 marks. There is also a 20-mark oral examination, which schools conduct.
The changes in the paper pattern have been made as per the State Curriculum Framework of 2012.The framework was formed to bring the syllabus of the state board on par with other boards. Accordingly, it was decided to add objective-type questions in the English language paper and the paper format has been uploaded on the Boards website for the reference of students.
Earlier, the English paper emphasized more on description, but activity-based questions such as fill in the blanks, identify correct answers, match correct options, will be given preference from the next exam. The state board has already changed the text books for English language from this academic year and the paper too will be set accordingly.
