CBSE Sample Papers’ Modification, Schools Get Circular

New Delhi: With the Class 10 and Class 12 board exams set to begin early next year, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has come up with a new circular informing about modifications in sample papers.

In the circular to the Head of all schools affiliated to it, CBSE said, “It is notified that the Curriculum for the session 2019-20 examinations was uploaded on CBSE’s website in the month of April 2019. Design/Blue Print of the Question papers was also given in the Curriculum. Thereafter, during the process of preparation of Sample Question papers, some modifications have been made to prepare our students for future challenges.

It is clarified that the Sample Question Papers for the session 2019-20 were uploaded in the month of September 2019 by the Board, therefore, the same may not be fully complacent with the Design/Blue Print of the question papers given in the Curriculum.”

It further read, “Sample Question Papers includes modifications introduced by the CBSE. It may please be noted that for 2020 Examinations, Sample Question  Papers should be taken into consideration and not the Design given in the Curriculum. Hence, students may be guided accordingly.”

Design of Sample Question Papers may also be used by the schools for the Pre-Board Examinations to make the students familiar with the changes made by the CBSE so that they feel no stress during Boards Examinations, it added.
