1. No chapter wise weightage. Care to be taken to cover all the chapters. 

2. Suitable internal variations may be made for generating various templates keeping the overall weightage to different forms of questions and typology of questions the same.


There will be no overall choice in the question paper. 

However, 33% internal choices will be given in all the sections.

⇒ Periodic Tests ( Best 2 out of 3 tests conducted): 10 Marks 

⇒ Mathematics Activities: 10 Mark 

Note: For activities NCERT Lab Manual may be referred.

Conduct of Periodic Tests:

Periodic Test is a Pen and Paper assessment which is to be conducted by the respective subject teacher. The format of periodic tests must have questions items with a balance mix, such as, very short answer (VSA), short answer (SA) and long answer (LA) to effectively assess  the  knowledge,  understanding,  application,  skills,  analysis,  evaluation  and synthesis. Depending on the nature of the subject, the subject teacher will have the liberty of incorporating any other types of questions too. The modalities of the PT are as follows:

a) Mode: The periodic test is to be taken in the form of pen-paper test.

b) Schedule: In the entire Academic Year, three Periodic Tests in each subject may be conducted as follows: 


Pre Mid-term (PT-I)

Mid-Term (PT-II)

Post Mid-Term (PT-III)

Tentative Month





This is only a suggestive schedule and schools may conduct periodic tests as per their convenience. The winter bound schools would develop their own schedule with similar time gaps between two consecutive tests.

c) Average of Marks: Once schools complete the conduct of all the three periodic tests, they will convert the weightage of each of the three tests into ten marks each for identifying best two tests. The best two will be taken into consideration and the average of the two shall be taken as the final marks for PT.

d) The  school will ensure simple documentation to keep  a  record of performance as suggested in detail circular no.Acad-05/2017.

e) Sharing of Feedback/Performance: The students’ achievement in each test must be shared with the students and their parents to give them an overview of the  level of learning that has taken place during different periods. Feedback will help parents formulate interventions (conducive ambience, support materials, motivation and morale - boosting)  to  further  enhance  learning.  A  teacher,  while  sharing  the  feedback  with a student or parent, should be empathetic, non- judgmental and motivating. It is recommended that the teacher share the best examples/performances of IA with the class to motivate all learners.


Assessment of Activity Work: 

Throughout  the  year any 10 activities shall be performed  by the  student  from  the activities given in the NCERT Laboratory Manual for the respective class (XI or XII) which is available on the link: record of the same may be kept by the student. An year end test on the activity may be conducted


The weightage are as under: 

· The activities performed by the student throughout the year and record keeping : 5 marks

· Assessment of the activity performed during the year end test: 3 marks 

· Viva-voce : 2 marks
