CBSE Asks Students To Follow 'Sample Question Paper' Format

CBSE says consider ‘Sample Question Papers’ not ‘Design’ given in the Curriculum.


NEW DELHI: The Central Board of Secondary Education or CBSE, national level board of education which has the mandate to conduct secondary and higher secondary certificate examinations in the country, has said in a new circular that the ‘Sample Question Papers’ released in September should be taken into consideration for 2020 Board examinations, and not the ‘Design’ given in the Curriculum released in April.

The Board will conduct the annual examinations in March (for the main papers) and the practicals are set to start from January.

“Design given in the Curriculum”: What is it?

Every year, the CBSE releases curriculum details for the current Academic Year of Secondary (Classes 9-10) and Senior Secondary (Classes 11 -12) students. Along with the curricula, the Board also releases a ‘Design’ or ‘Blue Print’ of the question papers based on which the annual exam question papers will be based.
