This time, the board has directed to conduct the half-yearly examination of classes nine and eleven on the OMR sheet. As per the new pattern, the question paper of 70 marks in the written examination has been divided into two parts. About 30 percent marks of the question paper i.e. the first part of 20 marks will be based on multiple-choice questions. Candidates will have to answer it on the OMR sheet. Under the National Education Policy 2020, now the second part of the question paper of 70 marks (about 70 percent or 50 marks) will be descriptive questions, whose answers will be given on the traditional answer sheets according to the existing system. The main objective behind this is to make the students practice taking the exam on the OMR sheet.
