Council of Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) has today, April 29, 2022, conducted the Environmental Studies (Group II Elective) exam for ICSE Class 10 students. The paper was held for a duration of 1.5 hours i.e., from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm. The exam was held at affiliated schools across the country, through the pen-and-paper mode. Today’s semester 2 paper was subjective in nature as opposed to objective-based format followed in semester 1.
Being subjective in nature, the ICSE Semester 2 Environmental Science 2022 exam will not have straightforward answers. However, covering the right points in each answer will fetch full marks to a candidate.
CISCE will soon be releasing the ICSE Semester 2 Environmental Science answer key on the official website circse.org. However, no date or time has been specified for answer key release. In the meantime, students can take a look at unofficial answer keys published online by educators. These are mostly available in the video-based format, on YouTube. The educator discusses the entire paper and mentions points to cover in each answer.
