About  BSEB:
The Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) is a board of education functioning under Government of Bihar devised to facilitate education and conduct examinations at secondary and senior secondary standard in both government and private schools belonging to state of Bihar on the basis of syllabus as prescribed by the Government of Bihar. The Board conducts secondary and senior secondary school examinations twice a year. One being annual board examinations in the months of February-March and other being supplementary examination held in August-September of every year.


Paper Pattern for BSEB 2016:
  • The Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) has decided to change the Intermediate and matric examination system from the upcoming session. After a long suspense finally BSEB (Bihar School Examination Board) has accepted the proposals of the Chief Minister to change the exam pattern of Intermediate or Class 12 Bihar Board Exams. Few weeks back the new CM of Bihar had proposed to change the pattern of Intermediate exam and had suggested BSEB to include 60 percent objective questions in the board exam. BSEB has accepted his proposals partially and now 40 percent objective questions will be asked in the Class 12 Bihar Board Exams from 2015 onwards.
  • BSEB has only changed the pattern of Intermediate or Class 12 board exams for the science and commerce stream. No such changes have been made for the Arts stream and hence the examination pattern for Arts stream will remain unchanged. The academic committee of Bihar School Examination Board unanimously passed the new pattern of Intermediate exam. The new pattern of Class 12 Bihar Board Exams will come into force from 2015 and BSEB may release a notification regarding it soon. Let us see the weightage of objective questions in some subjects.

Physics        28
Chemistry  28
Biology       28
Mathematics  40
Accountancy     40
Business Studies                      40
Economics    40

  • Let us take a quick look at the changes made in the pattern of Intermediate or Class 12 Bihar Board Exams
  • In the science and commerce stream, 40 percent objective questions will be asked
  • Question paper of science and commerce stream will contain 60 percent subjective questions
  • OMR Sheet will be provided to mark responses for the objective questions
  • In subjects like Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Entrepreneurship in which theory paper is of 70 marks, objective questions will carry 28 marks
  • In Mathematics, Accountancy, Economics and Business Studies objective questions will carry 40 marks
  • For the Arts stream the examination pattern will remain same
  • In 2012 also Intermediate examinations were conducted in Bihar on the same pattern. But the exam pattern was later changed in 2013. The new pattern is likely to benefit students who will appear in the JEE Mains. It will surely help students from the science and commerce stream to score higher in the Class 12 Bihar Board Exams.
