CBSE has announced about open book test exams for students this year. Open book means that the students will get a course material (other than their existing curriculum) before hand. The student has to go through this study material thoroughly. Then during examination, students shall be asked any question related / associated with this material provided. There would be some weightage of this test, say 10% or 20%.
This will help students to develop their mind because questions may not be direct and students have to apply their mind to answer these questions.
We shall soon be uploading sample papers for this Open Book Examination very soon, so keep on checking.
