As per the previous reports, the exam pattern of Class 12 English subject has been changed. So, the students should take care of the changes made in the exam pattern by the Central Board of Secondary Education.
In the English core subject, there will be a total of three sections i.e. Section A, B, and C. All the sections will be compulsory to attempt. Candidates are advised to read all the sections carefully and do not exceed the prescribed word limit while answering the questions.
In Section A, the number of passages has been reduced to two. Earlier, there were two passages of 1100-1200 words and one passage of 400-500 words. But now, there will be two passages of 800-900 words each.

Till 2018 session, the board used to ask 6 MCQs of 1 mark each, 6 very short type questions, 1 short type question of 3 marks, and 1 one long answer type question of 5 marks. But from this session onwards, there will be 5 MCQs of 1 mark each, 9 very short answer type question, 3 short answer type questions of 2 marks each in Passage one while in Passage two, 2 long answer type questions will be asked of 5 marks each.
So, for Section A, there will be 19 questions of 30 marks instead of 24 questions of 30 marks for all passages. Thus, in totality, the total number of questions in this section will be 35. Earlier, the number was 40.
In Section B, the questions will be asked to check the advanced writing skills. In this section, there will be a total of 4 questions. One question will be of 4 marks, one question of 6 marks and two questions will be 10 marks each. So, this section will have 30 marks.
