Mar 16, 2016 11:18 IST

    The English paper of the ongoing CBSE Board Exam for Class 10 students was conducted on March 15. English is considered to be one of the most critical and highly difficult papers of the CBSE Class 10 Board Exams.

    As expected, students were handed over the CBSE Class 10 English Paper 15 minutes prior (10:15 AM) the beginning of the examination. The 3-hour CBSE English Paper which consisted of three sections began at 10:30 and covered questions worth 70 marks in total. The three sections and their respective marks were divided as follow:

    Section A: Reading (20 marks)

    • Section B: Writing and Grammar (25 marks)

    • Section C: Literature (25 marks)

    Straightforward Questions

    For a change, the CBSE 10th English Paper 2016 didn’t consist of any tricky or highly difficult questions. The majority of questions were easy to understand and straightforward. The questions ranged from different topics within the syllabus and didn’t favour any particular topic or chapter in general. Students were also relieved to find that no questions were asked from outside the syllabus.

    Grammar Section

    While the majority of students found the paper to be quite easy, there were students, who deemed the grammar section to be a bit tricky. Some even complained about grammar section questions to be tricky and difficult to comprehend in general. But despite this, all the students seemed confident about handling this section relatively easily, compared to previous year papers.

    Overall Verdict

    Students coming out of the examination hall after appearing for the CBSE 10th Class English Paper were jubilant and relieved.
