Leniency due to Lack of Clarity, Business Studies CBSE 2016
This year yet again, the CBSE set a paper for the subject of Business Studies, which was extensively based on Case Studies just like last year's, after the format change. It could be argued that these were slightly harder compared to even last year considering, the lack of clarity in many of the questions. The approach of CBSE is understandable to try and have a more application based approach to the questions to better equip students, yet the flaw in this system is that the students become dependant on outside sources for questions of this perspective. Due to lack of clarity and also the factor that this is still a new format of paper(only the second year) and the fact that it is difficult to prepare without having any official material of this sort being available we would like to request leniency in correction for this year's paper. The importance of the 12th Standard exams are very high and can effect a students future greatly, it would be advisable of the CBSE to evaluate papers in the coming years on the basis of the official material available to students in terms of sample questions officially published or available as part of the textbooks.
