CBSE to provide Separate Question Papers for Blind Students

CBSE is going to provide alternate questions in science subjects at the senior school certificate examination for blind candidates. In order to facilitate visually impaired candidates to take science subjects at the senior secondary level, the board decided to get the question papers in the subjects of Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Biology set separately without having any visual input w.e.f 2012 examination.

Since the subjects of Physics, Chemistry and Biology also contain practical component which the visually impaired students will not be able to attempt, CBSE has decided to provide separate question papers in lieu of practical to visually impaired students, containing multiple choice questions, based on the practical content.

This new scheme will be implemented for students of class XI from 2012, March examination and for students of class XII from 2012 Board examination.
