Bhubaneswar: The Council of Higher Secondary Education (CHSE) is all set to follow the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) syllabus from the year 2013. The CHSE is gradually following the foot steps of CBSE by changing its marking pattern soon.

Jasobanta Behera, CHSE Controller of Examinations said “The students will take it as a challenge and perform better in exams. Prior to this, they used to mug up answers which was an unhealthy trend. The more number of objective questions will allow them better understanding of the subject”. “We will change the CHSE pattern completely and follow the CBSE pattern.” said Behera.

There have been accusations regarding the CHSE pattern which prevent students from scoring higher marks. In the new exam pattern there will be 60% marks for short questions and 40% for long questions. This will help CHSE students to score higher marks. These changes will be implemented in all the three streams arts, science and commerce.
