New Delhi, Jan 6: HRD Minister Kapil Sibal has said that Government wants change in the question pattern in examinations at school level to test the intelligence of the children.
Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a seminar on 'New Education Policy', Sibal said, "Children will be asked questions to test their inherent intelligence. We are working on an action plan on how to have such examination system."
The government is preparing an action plan to change the examination format to test the real talent of the students.
"Our professors used to tell us that we can take textbooks to the examination centre. But these books will not be of much help because the questions will test the real intelligence of the students," he said.
Sibal said the curriculum at the school level will also be changed.
Sibal said the government is working out on how to arrange funds for implementing the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act.
"Once we work out the funding arrangements, we will notify the Act," he added.
