Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is all set to conduct the Class 10 English Paper (Language & Literature) the day after tomorrow on December 11, 2021. The exam will be held for the duration of 90 minutes, from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm. Even though this is a language paper, the exam is entirely objective in nature. Hence, students have to spot the right option and mark the same in their answer sheet.
Another key advantage is that this year, CBSE has decided to continue with the same reduced syllabus as applicable last year. Moreover, this reduced 70% syllabus has been divided into two terms – Term I and Term II. So, effectively, candidates have to only study 35% of the portion to ace tomorrow’s exam.

As seen in the case of previous major subject exams conducted so far, solving the sample papers has significantly helped students in two aspects – one, understanding the new paper pattern, and two, practicing questions for the impending exam. So, students have been advised to solve the sample paper at least once before the exam.
