CBSE Scraps OTBA for Classes 9 and 11


The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) announced that the Open Text Based Assessment (OTBA) for class IX and XI has been done away with from this academic year. This means that the students would no longer be allowed to carry textbooks to their examination halls.

The concept was introduced by CBSE in the year 2014. For class IX OTBA was introduced for Hindi, English, Mathematics, Social Science and Science and for class XI it was introduced for Economics, Geography and Biology.  Under OTBA, students were given study material four months prior to the exam and were allowed to take their case studies to the examination hall. By doing this an attempt was made to shift the focus from rote-learning to applying the information decisively. “Schools had to prepare question paper out of the material provided by the CBSE and students were asked questions based on that,” shared a senior official.

Class 12th is one of the most crucial phases in a student’s life. Your career largely depends on the marks you score in 12th standard. It is thus important for you to plan properly, seek proper guidance and stay determined in order to crack your board examination with good marks. Here is how to score 90+ in Class 12th to give shape to your career.
Plan your Schedule
It is important to prepare a workable schedule and stick to it. Split the topics based on their level of difficulty. It is a good idea to cover one difficult topic coupled with one or two topics you find easy in a day in order to strike a balance. Set some time aside to unwind in between. Sitting for long hours can lower the concentration level.

Clear the Concepts
Mugging up the answers without clearing the concepts does not help. It is important for you to get the concepts right. If the concepts are clear you would be able to answer even a twisted or tricky question with ease.
Enrol at a good coaching centre to take coaching for subjects such as Physics, Chemistry, Maths and Accountancy. For PCM you can get good online coaching at Etoosindia.com. They have tie up with some of the best faculties in the industry so you will get expert guidance sitting at home.

Test Your Knowledge
Just learning the topics day in and day out would not help you judge as to how much you have grasped and where you stand. It is essential for you to test your knowledge at every step and this can be done by solving sample papers and taking up mock tests. Etoosindia provides online mock tests in Physics, Chemistry and Maths. You can opt for these and check how much you have learned.
Learn the Examination Pattern
It is also important to know the examination pattern beforehand so that you have an idea on how to manage time as you sit for your board exam. Have a look at the previous years’ papers to check the pattern.

Revision Well
It is important to revise the topics from time to time. Prepare small notes or highlight the important parts for revision. You can also prepare charts of the maths formula and stick them on your desk to revise them regularly.

A Night before the Exam  
Review all the topics a night before the exam with focus on the topics you feel are important and also those you are weak in. Do not study till late at night. Sleep well to let your mind and body relax before the exam.

Just Before the Exam
Get up early in the morning for a quick revision of all the topics and close your books thereafter. Do not keep reading even as you stand outside the examination hall just before sitting for the exam. It will not help! That is the time you should let your mind relax.
During the Exam
Read the instructions carefully and begin with the questions that carry more marks and move on to those that have less weightage. If you are not sure about the answer to any question it is better to leave it for the end. Lastly, read all your answers once you are done with the paper.
