3 Reasons Why you need to familiarise yourself with the marking scheme…
It hasn’t been long since CBSE released the sample papers, along with subject-related marking schemes, for students preparing for the board examinations for classes 10 and 12, to be held in 2019.
Now, it’s common knowledge that while students devote their attention to the sample-papers, they tend to view the marking schemes with a degree of nonchalance. What the students fail to realise is that a significant part of their performance hinges on their understanding of the marking scheme and how they develop on the same understanding for their advantage.
Let’s understand exactly why you need to familiarise yourself with the marking scheme and consider this a part of your on-going preparations for the board examinations.
To put it in simpler terms, perusing marking schemes for all the subjects is as good (basic) as viewing the index before you move on to study the chapters.
Online examination gives three reasons, rather ways, that will justify the importance of marking scheme for your preparation.
Now that you know what to do, here’s a general pattern that is going to be followed by CBSE for classes 10 and 12.
Class 10: CBSE will follow the same pattern as in the previous year (i.e. final board exams conducted by CBSE, with 80-20 board-internal marks division). A student must secure 33% out of 80 marks to clear each subject. The examination will cover 100% syllabus (with internal choice given in all exams).
Class 12: new pattern for class 12 consists of total 100 marks for all the subjects which will further be divided into – Theoretical exam
– Practical exam/Project work
(Please note: Class 12 students areadvised to take special note of the changes made in the exam-pattern of English -Core)
