With an aim to help students, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has brought an important change in the CBSE Class 12 Accountancy Paper.

Latest Update: CBSE Releases Revised Date Sheet For Class 10, 12 Board Exams

The board has issued a notice regarding the change stating that it will share answer sheets with printed formats for journal and accounts’ entry to help students save times.

Earlier, while appearing for the Accountancy Paper, students were spending much time on drawing tables.

In the notice shared with schools, CBSE has shared the sample of the said formats. So, students appearing for the exam will now get the answer sheets which will have a total of 8 tables of journal and 8 tables of accounts.
While Table A will be printed from Page no. 17 to 24 of the answer sheet, Table B will be printed from Page no. 25 to 32.

Students will have to write the question number on the left hand side margin like it is usually written and start solving the question in the printed tables.

Teachers and schools have been advised to inform the students about this change. The board also directed  educational institutions to advise all students, who will be appearing for the Accountancy Class 12 exam this year, to practice on similar answer sheets to make themselves habituated to the format.

"I feel at ease and relieved after listening to this development because while writing accountancy paper, drawing the ledger accounts and journals consume a significant amount of time and there is also pressure to keep the tables neat. With the printed format, I can concentrate on the digits and paper solely," said Marut Nandan, a commerce student gearing up for his boards.

The Class 12 Accounts paper exam will be held on May 17, 2021. The paper will carry 80 marks excluding 20 marks for Practical Exam and Viva.
