Listen to the story
Punjab's Intermediate and Matriculation boards are going to change their examination paper patterns to discourage rote learning. Rote learning is when students memorize entire passages and focuses more on repetition than actual understanding of concepts. In order to do away with this concept, the boards are going to change the way their exam papers are structured. The papers will now have 50% questions based on reasoning and conceptual understanding. The remaining will be theory. A working paper on this has been prepared by the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education. By 2022, the boards hope to make 100% of the questions conceptual. This means students will be forced to apply the concepts rather than write down entire memorised passages.

    Teacher’s should also mark students paper in relaxed manner in which it would benefit both the teachers and the students.
