New Delhi, 12th September 2023: Over the years, CBSE has revamped its exam structure to become more focused on testing competency and high-order thinking skills in students. This has been reflected in all the Board Papers in recent years.
To equip students better in preparing for these new and challenging typologies of Questions, for the last 2 years, CBSE has been providing ‘Additional Practice Questions’ on their official website for classes 10th & 12th along with Marking Scheme Answers. On 8th September, CBSE released the Additional Practice Question set for the 2023-24 academic session.
These questions, accompanied by marking scheme answers, are designed to align with the evolving exam structure and provide students with a deeper understanding of crucial concepts and typologies. This article delves into the details of these practice questions, their significance, and how they benefit students in their board exam preparation.
The style of questions in the practice set is the same as the new and revised Board Sample Papers released on 31st March & 7th August respectively. As per the official blueprint of the CBSE Sample Papers, 50% competency-based questions will be asked in the 2023-24 Exam (refer to the screenshot below)
The recently released set of Additional Practice Questions will give the students a greater insight into the most important concepts and typologies for the upcoming boards. Students will evaluate their understanding of different topics and identify areas where they need improvement. While these Practice questions are typically designed to mimic the format and difficulty level of actual board exams, the blueprint in the boards will be as per the Board sample Papers released earlier. With a wide universe of questions, the students will get a chance to be well-prepared for the Boards, reducing anxiety and boosting performance.
