By the year 2022, if the final draft of the new National Education Policy is approved, a candidate may be able to take the board exams twice a year, eliminating the “high stakes” aspect of the exams and easing the pressure on both students and their parents.This will allow students to shine in topics of their choice; the particular format of subjects could also be relaxed and students will be able to pick subjects according to their interests for the board examinations.

Also, the new policy calls for a high-quality common modular entrance exam multiple times each year for undergraduate admissions.

According to TOI, The National Education Policy (NEP) said that the schooling system will shift from one that primarily tests rote memorisation skills to one that is more formative and is competency-based, which promotes learning and development for the students, and tests higher-order skills such as analysis, critical thinking, and conceptual clarity.

NEP is of the view that the board exams will primarily test the capacities so that any student who has been making a basic effort in a school class will be able to pass the corresponding subject board exam without much additional effort.Policy draft has entrusted the task of preparing the guidelines for multiple board exams on the National Council of Educational Research and Training for the transformation of the assessment system by 2022.
