CBSE has decided to drop the Problem Solving Assessment (PSA) in classes IX and XI


CBSEIn a move that will bring great relief to class IX CBSE students, the board has decided to drop the Problem Solving Assessment (PSA) in classes IX and XI.

Instead, the students will appear for an additional Formative Assessment (FA).

For the past three years, CBSE has been conducting the PSA for classes IX and XI, with the board preparing the question paper along the lines of a competitive examination.

The examination is divided into four sections: reasoning, general knowledge, mathematics and science. The marks obtained in the different sections are then added to the marks of science, English, mathematics and social studies.

Students, teachers and principals in the city say that the cancellation of the PSA is a good move, since it will make a big difference in the marks of the students.

"Preparing for the PSA is difficult, especially since I am not attending any coaching for competitive examinations. I am glad that there will be an extra FA instead of the PSA," S. Kamini, a student of Class IX said.
