“There will be more case-study based questions wherein a paragraph will be given to students and they will have to answer questions after reading the paragraph. This will assess students on their reading, understanding, interpretation, and answer writing abilities and move away from the root learning,” Joseph Emmanuel, director, academics at CBSE was quoted as saying by Indian Express.
