Only a few months are left for the CBSE Class 10 Board Exams 2018 to commence. Now, students who are going to appear for Class 10 Board Exams must start doing an effective preparation to cover the whole syllabus and then start revisions before exams. But before they start preparing for exams they must have an idea about the exam structure and type of questions to be asked in CBSE Class 10 Board Exams 2018.

From the current session the examination pattern for CBSE Class 10 has been changed. CBSE recently released the sample papers for all important subjects to give an idea of the examination pattern to be followed in Class 10 Board Exams 2018.

CBSE Class 10 Science Sample Paper 2017-2018

Here, we will discuss about the major changes observed in the latest examination pattern to be followed in CBSE Class 10 Science Board Examintion 2018.

CBSE Class 10 Mathematics Examination Pattern is as follows:

Previous dual assessment scheme in CBSE class 10 has been replaced with the annual board exams. Board will conduct the class 10 Science exam for 80 marks covering 100% syllabus of the subject. Other 20 marks are kept with schools for internal assessment (IA).

Internal Assessment comprises of:

  • Periodic Tests (PT) with weightage of 10 marks each   
  • Notebook Submission of 5 marks
  • Subject Enrichment Activities of 5 marks.

As per the sample paper, released by the CBSE Board, the new examination pattern for CBSE Class 10 Science Board Exam 2018 will be according to the following format:

There will be a total of 27 questions divided into two sections A and B.

Section Questions Marks per question

Note: Above weightage includes the weightage of questions based on practical skills.

12 marks of the entire CBSE class 10th Science Board Exam 2018 shall comprise the practical based questions only which would be of descriptive type.

In the new pattern there will be no Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) unlike the previous years’ exam pattern where B-sections consisted of mostly practical based MCQs.

While writing answers to various questions, students must follow the following word limitations:

  • 1 mark question needs to be answered in one sentence
  • 2 marks question needs to be answered in about 30 words
  • 3 marks question needs to be answered in about 50 words
  • 4 marks question needs to be answered in about 70 words

Students must consider this latest pattern while preparing for CBSE Class 10 Science Board Exam 2018.

Though the CBSE Class 10 Assessment Structure has been changed completely as compared to the previous one, but it’s not a big deal to score well in Class 10 Board exams if you have a clear strategy and a good study plan to cross the victory line. So stay alert and focused.

All the very best!
