Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) today, December 20, 2021, conducted the last Term 1 exam for the Humanities stream. The paper was held for a duration of 1 hour and 30 minutes, from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm. The paper was entirely objective in nature, comprising of 60 multiple-choice questions (MCQs). Out of which, a student had to attempt a minimum of 50 questions to score the perfect 40/40 figure. Moreover, the paper only covered 50% of the reduced syllabus, as directed by the CBSE.
Since the CBSE Class 12 History Term I exam covered only MCQs, students can calculate their exam scores immediately after the exam. For this reason, students have been searching incessantly for answer keys online. Furthermore, there is no official update from CBSE whether it would be releasing any official answer key for the History examination. Earlier, it had notified on December 15 that it would be stopping the same-day evaluation for the rest of the examination.
In the meantime, students can make use of CBSE Class 12 History Term I unofficial answer keys uploaded online by several educators. These answer keys are available in two formats – one, PDF or image enlisting the right options for all 60 MCQs, and two, video-based answer keys with detailed explanations.
With the former, students can compare the answer keys directly with their responses and determine the CBSE Class 12 History Term 1 exam score. However, using the latter, students can understand the reason behind each answer, where they lagged in terms of preparation, etc. Students will have to note down the right options simultaneously while watching the video. And then, calculate their exam score.
Following is a table containing links to video-based solutions uploaded by several educators –

CBSE shall employ a simple marking scheme to determine the CBSE Class 12 History Term I exam score. In this scheme, each correct answer will be allotted 0.8 marks. 0 marks will be allotted to incorrect or unanswered questions. So, to calculate the final score, students can use the following marking scheme –
Total Score = (No. of Correct Responses) x 0.8
Any student must get 50 correct responses to score the perfect figure. Moreover, to calculate an accurate score, students can refer to 2 or more answer keys and get the right options. Later on, when CBSE releases its answer key, students can again, compare their responses to calculate the actual exam score.
