CBSE Class 12 History Answer Key
Due to the objective nature of the paper, students expect the CBSE 2021-22 Term 1 exam answer keys soon after the examination gets over. Hence, several educators post the answer key for every examination online. These answer keys are not released by CBSE officially and are known to be unofficial indeed. Although the answer keys posted so far predict 95% chances of the answers to be correct.
According to the students’ review, the questions asked in the examination were comparatively easier than thrones framed in the sample question paper. Questions were fairly simple apart from the last 2 map-based questions which were trickier to answer. Questions in section A of the question paper were direct theory-based questions framed from textbooks. Section B consisted of questions patterned in aptitude format which needed some logic along with the knowledge to answer the questions.
