A few months left for CBSE 2020 board exams to begin! To prepare for the exams NCERT textbooks are prescribed by CBSE both for class 10th and 12th. Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has instructed also to prepare the content provided in the ‘boxes’ in the books. Questions might also get framed from them in the upcoming question paper. To make students understand the pattern of the question papers, CBSE has uploaded the sample papers 2020 on its official website- cbse.nic.in, and cbseacademic.nic.in.
In the NCERT books of class 10th and 12th, each and every chapter has some piece of information quoted in a colored box. Not separate from the chapters, but there are some aspects of the chapter in these colored boxes. In a hurry of completing the syllabus, students often ignore the information provided in these boxes. As a result, two or three questions in the exam seem to be out of the syllabus to the students.
It has been noticed by CBSE that in the NCERT books, it is mentioned that the information in colored boxes are not meant for the purpose of internal assessment or exams. Thus, to clarify this point for students, CBSE has released an official notification. It states that for the 2020 exams, students can keep in mind that boxes marked as out of syllabus by NCERT are a part of the syllabus.
It means students need to study the topics and the questions from the colored boxes also. Questions could come from them and not be considered as out of the syllabus in the future.
The pattern of the 2020 question paper are also amended. CBSE class 10th and 12th sample papers 2020 are designed keeping in mind the new pattern of the question paper. However, the design or blue print of the question paper uploaded on the official website do not match the desidn of the sample papers. This puts students in a dilemma while preparing for the exams. Presently, CBSE has released another notification and ask the students and the schools to follow the exam pattern as that of sample papers 2020.
In addition CBSE has advised the schools to prepare the question paper for the pre-board exams as per the sample papers pattern. This will help student become familiar with the board exams and helps them to perform better.
A total of 21,64,367 students have registered for class 10th. And total 12,88,054 students have registered for class 12th. Class 10th and 12th practical dates are also announced. They are to be conducted in respective schools from January 01 to February 07, 2020.
What about the date sheet? CBSE 10th, 12th exams are going to start from February 15, 2020. The confirmed date sheet is expected to be available by the end of this November.
