CBSE Class 12 History Paper Review 2023

A majority of the students we talked to mentioned that the question paper was average and questions were well-distributed according to the unit-wise weightage prescribed by the board but felt lengthy. 

Type of Questions asked in Today’s History Exam

  • Section A: Questions 1 to 21 - MCQs, 1 mark each. 
  • Section B: Questions 22 to 27 - Short Answer Type Questions, 3 marks each. 
  • Section C: Questions 28 to 30 - Long Answer Type Questions, 8 marks each.
  • Section D: Questions 31 to 33 - Source based questions (three sub questions), 4 marks each.
  • Section-E - Questions 34 - Map based, 5 marks.

Section-wise Class 12 History Exam Review:

  • MCQs were mostly simple but not too direct from the books.
  • Short Answer Type Questions were not too lengthy and could easily be justified in the given word limit.
  • Long Answer Type Questions needed some thinking and required a little more detail than what would have simply coincided with the suggested word limit. Some questions required more thinking and deeper knowledge than the rest.
  • Source based questions were easy to solve if one had a strong grasp on the topic. 
  • Map based questions were difficult and most students, especially the ones unaware of the subject content, struggled to solve them.
