The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has successfully conducted the Class 12 History exam today, i.e. December 20, 2021. The exam took place for a duration of 90 minutes starting from 11:30 AM and ending at 1:00 PM. Students got a duration of 20 minutes as reading time. Now, with the conclusion of the exam, students seem to be in search of the exam analysis and answer keys.
CBSE has not released the official answer keys for History yet, and it is ambiguous whether it would be releasing the same any time soon. However, various coaching institutes and educators are expected to come up with unofficial answer keys very soon. These answer keys will be released on YouTube along with social media platforms like Telegram, like the previous exams.
A few notable channels that are likely to release the answer keys are CBSE Material Provider, Kritarth Melkani, Technical Gyani Baba, EduLogical, etc. Now, it must be noted that these are not the only channels that are expected to release the answer keys for the CBSE class 12 History paper. There are more channels and coaching centers on YouTube that will be posting the answer keys in due time. It is advised to keep refreshing the page to crosscheck the answer keys with that of the student’s responses.
The questions in today’s class 12 History paper were asked from the prescribed syllabus only. A total of 06 themes were required for today’s exam and the question paper was set for a total of 40 marks. The sections that were covered are as follows:
- Bricks, Beads and Bones
- Kings, Farmers and Towns
- Kinship, Caste and Class
- Thinkers, Beliefs and Buildings, Bhakti-Sufi Traditions
- An Imperial Capital: Vijayanagara
In order to help the students boost their preparation strategy, CBSE had already released the sample question paper on its official website – cbseacademic.nic.in. As per the sample paper, the question paper has four sections namely A, B, C, and D. This is for the first time in the history of CBSE that the Board is holding the Term 1 examinations in an MCQ format owing to the bifurcation of the board exams. Students were required to submit the OMR sheets sharp by 1 PM.
Just in case the answer keys and paper discussions are not available at the moment, then one should wait for some time and check them later on. These answer keys are unofficial and students should not rely on them completely as they can have a maximum of 95% accuracy. To be sure of one’s answers, check multiple answer keys from YouTube and other platforms.
