“This year, four types of changes have been made, including the decision to do away with the centralized fitness test and conducting a game-based fitness test.This would allow us to judge the fitness parameters of the student in that particular game/sport. Secondly,the weightage of the sports trial marks and certificates has been increased to 60 and 40 per cent respectively” he told Asian Age.
