Grand total 40 questions 80 marks

**Please note that the below content is outdated, new information will be added soon.

You will have exams in two parts, Summative Assessment I and Summative Assessment II, both have equal weightage of 50% marks.

So, you should keep in mind that you cannot score good marks just by studying at the last moment. The continuous study will help you thoroughly.

Summative Assessment I:-

The total weightage assigned to this section is 30%.

Out of the total, you have 30% marks to score in this section. The Reading section contains 15 marks, writing section consists of 20 marks, 15 marks are assigned to Grammar portion, Literature section – 30 marks and 10 marks will be given to you for Listening and speaking abilities. This makes a total of 90 marks.

Formative Assessment:-

This portion has 20% weightage in total, ascribed to it.
Now, the total of 50% weightage in the first term exams will be added to the weightage of final marks.

Summative Assessment II:-

30% weightage is given to this section, and there will be the same pattern of question paper with the same sections and same marking scheme as it was in S.A – I.

Formative Assessment:-

There will be Formative Assessment of 20 marks once again, but you just have to do a little more hard work here as the syllabus will be increased.

Now, look at the marks distribution among the different sections of the question paper. Just read it carefully, a little sloppiness can cost you hard.

First of all, let me make it clear that the question paper will be divided into four sections making a total of 90 marks.



The first section is Reading Section of 15 marks, in which two unseen passages will be presented before you. You have to answer some questions on the basis of these passages.

Of course, it will make a check on your vocabulary by including questions like error finding, sentence competition and fill in the blanks, and one-word answers will also be there.



This section is all about your own creative skills and formating. The more you write creative and to the point, the more you will gather marks in this section. And you should know that almost half of the marks are for formating, so try to keep your formatting up to standards.

There will be four questions. In the first one, you will be given either a short composition, a notice, a message or a diary entry consisting 3 marks. Just write about 50 words in this question.

The next question will comprise of 5 marks in which you will have to write a description or biological sketch. In the sketch, the students who want to get full marks should write up to 100 words.

The third question of this section will consist of formal/informal letter comprising of 6 marks. The ideal letter should be of 100-120 words. The letter will be followed by a next question in which you have to prove your writing skill in about 120 words in the form of  given article or story.

Section C:-


This section of the papers is to check your grammatical knowledge. One-word questions like Gap filling, rearrangement of sentences, Sentence completion, Editing, etc. will be asked in this section.

Section D:-


This section is one among the most marks scoring sections. All you need is knowledge of every chapter from your English textbook. The section will consist questions from Prose, Poetry, and Play, i.e there will be three questions each from different parts, i.e. Prose, Poetry, and Play. Together it makes 9 marks.

Two short questions will also be there comprising 6 marks, and one long question of 5 marks. I will suggest you to give the most of your attention to this section as there will be no question outside from your textbook, so it is easy to grab these 20 marks.


There will be two general questions in this section. The first one will be like a theme or a plot of some play of your textbook, it will carry 5 marks. In the next question, you will have to write a character sketch of given character, in at least 100 words, and this questions will also carry 5 marks.

Hopefully, this will work and will help you to study smartly in English.


In a survey it was found that maths is the subject in which most of the students are weak. This implies that most of the students find maths hard to study. You must have noticed, when you are getting the right answers to the questions, then maths seems to be fun and you just can’t stop yourself doing more.

But, the story changes when you are stuck in some problem, or you are not getting the right answer. This means that students do like maths, but they are not determinant enough to solve the problem through hard work. So next time when you stuck in some problem, just give it your 100%.

Description of questions No. of questions Total marks
1 mark questions 6 6
2 marks questions 6 12
3 marks questions 10 30
4 marks questions 8 32
Grand total 30 questions 80 marks

Lets Understand this table in detail:

In the first column, the name of the chapter are given. Some of the chapters name are not complete or are written in short form due to some technical limitations. Therefore, students are advised to refer NCERT.

Columns 2, 3, 4 and 5 represent how many questions of how many marks will come from each chapter. e.g in the chapter Real Numbers, there will be 1 question of 1 mark, and 1 question of 2 marks, hence total 3 marks.

In the last column, the total marks questions  from each chapter are represented. The questions are given inside the brackets(). The last row of the table gives the grand total of questions and marks.

    1. Hello Karthik,
      It totally depends on your school, if it is willing to let it go, then there is no problem. As per CBSE rules, school can give 20 marks of practical to students and out of these 20 marks few marks are awarded for submitting notebook.

    1. Hello P.S,
      First of all get the idea that you are weak in any subject out of your mind. Believe that you are good in subject, and then start to practice it.

      For maths, make sure you have formulas on your fingertips. And start with easy question to get in a flow. If there is something that you can not understand then ask for help from your parents/teacher or someone who knows it, don’t hesitate.

      For social science, don’t try to memorize answers. Break the answers in points and try to remember them as facts. This trick is very useful for history part. instead of mugging up the whole answer, just remember the important points so that you can make the whole answer bu yourself in exam.

  27. Hai,i am facing problems in app.of trigonometry. Please give me some tips.

    1. Hello Veer,
      Application of trigonometry can be really tough if your basics of trigonometry are not clear. So, first of all practice trigonometry properly, then begin with it’s application. Next, all the trigonometric values should be on your finger tips. Try to solver the example given in the NCERT, as they will help you a lot.

      Solve all the questions from NCERT, as most of thee questions in exams comes from NCERT.

  28. What should i do with social science, It kind of a problem in my life.

    1. Prof. Rajeev Mehra

      Hello Yash,
      Social science is not as bad as you think. For history section, think each chapter as a story. Most of the students suffer in history because it hard to remember answers in history. Just remember the main points of a answer in Hindi, and you will see that you can elaborate them in English later. For Geography section, think of it as you are increasing your GK, just remember the facts and nothing else, you will efficiently be able to write aa lot based on those facts.

      Apply these methods in other parts of Social science, and your life will look much better then.

  29. I want to score good marks in all subject but i am very week in social, maths and science.

    1. Prof. Rajeev Mehra

      Hello Aryan,
      First of all remove the negative thought like “i am very weak”. It is this though that is stopping you from getting good marks. Be positive and believe that you are good in all subjects, then putt all your efforts.

      In subjects like Maths and Science, you can never develop interest unless your basics are clear. So, i will advice you to first clear you basics and then start preparing for these subjects.

  30. Mam we would have our halfyearly exam of 80 marks are they going to be converted into 5
    Class 10

    1. Prof. Rajeev Mehra

      Hello Ankur, I am not able to understand your query properly. According to my guess, you are asking if the half yearly marks will be added in final exam or not? If this is your query then, no, half yearly marks will not be added to final exams.

      Feel free to comment again if this is not what you want to ask.

  31. Hi mam. I have got 9.4 cgpa in class 9th but in 10 I am facing problem in maths. So, how I can overcome this problem? please reply.

    1. Hi Udayasri.
      My first and foremost advice to you is build up your confidence because it is necessary that you believe in yourself as only then you can achieve your target. Keep yourself focused and set a timetable. When it comes to Maths all that is required is practice. And if you aim to score good marks then you cannot miss a single day as regular study is must. Practice from NCERT book and do every question including examples. Practice as much as you can. Formula plays very important role in Maths so make sure you remember them by heart. Don’t forget to do revision. Keep on doing the hard work and you will score good marks.

  32. Hello mam. My doubt is will the whole percentage and CGPA will depend upon our board exams results?

    1. Hi Yagurti.
      Yes, of course your percentage of 10th class will depend upon your board exam marks but as exam is of only 80 marks and the rest 20 marks will be given based on your performance in internal assignment so, you still have 20 marks to improve your percentage.

  33. Hello Mam. This time there will be a new system for class 10 board exam. So please tell me how can I achieve high marks.

      My first and foremost advice to you is not to get nervous. And it is okay that you feel anxious as CBSE have have implemented new pattern and made board exams compulsory but don’t worry as there is no change in the syllabus or anything so just be focus. From this year onwards you will have to study 6 subject instead of 5 so it can put a little pressure on you but it is to only help you build your overall performance.

  36. Hi. I want to know that now CBSE pattern has been changed so our teachers are saying that board has made it compulsory to choose extra one subject. So, I have taken IT (information and communication technology). But in other CBSE school no one have taken any extra subject. So it is a big confusion for me? please help.

    1. Hi Namrat.
      Students appearing for Class X board exams will have to study six subjects instead of five with the CBSE remodelling its assessment scheme. The 6th subject have been made mandatory. From the academic year of 2017-18, students will have to appear for these papers along with one extra vocational subject.

  37. Hi mam. How can I improve my English because I’m weak in English. Please suggest me as I’m preparing for
    board exam.

    1. Hi Sushant.
      The best possible way to improve your English is by reading. Yes! the more you will read the faster you will learn. Read your English textbooks, newspaper, magazine etc and keep a notebook and dictionary with yourself. While reading whenever you come across a new word or something you don’t understand just look in the dictionary and write it down in your notebook. Next thing is work on your grammar. If it is needed learn the basic grammar rules and practice. Don’t get dishearten because it will take some time but if you eventually your English will get better. For board exams practice the writing section like letters, essays etc as they carry high marks. The easiest section is literature as you only have to write answers of the textbook questions. So, practice and read as much as you can.

      Hi Aman. Always remember one thing that Hindi is one of the most marks securing subject in class 12th. Just make sure that you are fully prepared in it. Always study from the main NCERT book and while answering the questions in exam, take care that Answers should be brief and to the point, the word limit should be as per the instructions given in the question paper.

      Do practice the previous year papers and sample papers of Hindi to get a better idea of the questions.
