CBSE Term 1 Class 10 English Exam: Controversial Passage
Class 10th board examination was concluded on 11th December 2021 with English Language and Literature paper. The students found many mistakes in the English Language and Literature paper and they raised the issue. The board has responded by issuing a circular, the board stated “A passage in one set of the English Language and Literature paper from the CBSE Class 10th Term 1 examination, held on December 11, 2021, does not follow the board’s norms for question paper setting. In light of this, and in response to stakeholder feedback, the matter was referred to a committee of subject experts. It was decided to eliminate passage No. 1 and its corresponding questions from Question Paper Series JSK/1 based on their advice. All students involved will receive full marks for this passage. To guarantee uniformity and parity, students will receive full marks for passage No. 1 in all sets of the Class 10th English language and Literature question paper.”
In the wake of the outcry over the “anti-woman” question asked in the Central Board of Secondary Education Class 10th English paper on Saturday, December 11, CBSE issued a circular today stating that all students who passed will receive full marks. “To ensure uniformity and parity, all sets of the question paper in Class 10th English and Literature will award full marks to students for passage number 1,” the circular stated. Meanwhile, members of the public ranging from politicians to educators have criticized the board for a “gender biassed” line in the grade 10 English paper. Sonia Gandhi, the interim leader of the Congress, raised the issue in the Lok Sabha today, requesting that the ‘shockingly backward passage’ in the paper be removed and that the board apologise.
On social media, Congresswoman Priyanka Gandhi Vadra had already criticized CBSE and the central government, saying: “Unbelievable!” Is this really what we’re teaching our kids? Why would these outdated ideas on women be included in the CBSE curriculum if the BJP government does not support them?”
