CBSE New Exam Guidelines Boosting The Emergence Of OMR Software

Like any other competitive exam, Class 10th exams would be MCQ-based. Considering the covid scenario, this is a radical shift for both students and teachers. Schools have initiated orientation classes for conducting the exam. The paper will be based on case studies MCQs. Students have to put effort to get used to it. Rote learning won’t be helpful in this exam. Responses will be marked in the OMR sheets, which would be directly uploaded on the CBSE portal after scanning on the same day. If we see things from the teacher’s perspective, preparing MCQ-based questions would be difficult in comparison to preparing a theoretical-based paper. There is a lot of uncertainty regarding the new format of the examination. Parents and teachers are spending more time understanding the new format. The main objective of CBSE is to reduce the stress of students and teachers at this crucial time.

How it will benefit OMR software companies? 

The new bifurcation in the exam format is increasing the demands of the OMR sheets. Schools are facing problems in designing OMR sheets.

Schools need an ample number of OMR sheets for conducting the examination and practice for becoming exam ready. OMR sheet reader software is a suitable solution for schools, colleges, and Universities. It can read a thousand sheets at a time. It plays a crucial role in reducing the workforce and overall cost. OMR software for school can overcome all the challenges of conducting examinations. You can train IT personnel to use software, or you can hire a new workforce.
