About CBSE

The CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) conducts examinations at the end of Class X and Class XII. It is one of the most extensive school boards in the world and covers around 16,000 schools in India and a small number in another 23 countries.

Apart from the major school examinations, the CBSE also conducts most of the major National Level Competitive Exams in the country. This list keeps on getting bigger with the latest entrant being the UGC NET exam.

Comparison

CBSE is considered to be tougher than State Boards, but not only is it more student friendly, it is also considered by many to be richer in educational content. CBSE is especially beneficial to those who wish to pursue higher education in Nationalized Institutions over State Institutions. The CBSE curriculum will definitely help if you plan on pursuing further education from a centralized institution like an IIT or AIIMS. The preliminary exams for these institutions are organised by CBSE only and therefore, doing your primary and secondary schooling in CBSE will give you an added edge over the competition.

  3. The marks/grades shall be awarded for individual subjects; aggregate marks shall not be given.

Grading

  1. Assessment of theory/practical papers in external subjects shall be in numerical scores. In addition, the Board shall indicate grades in the marksheets issued to the candidates.
  2. In external examinations, the qualifying marks in each subject shall be 33 Secondary/Senior School Certificate Examinations. However, in a subject involving practical work, a candidate must obtain 33% marks in the theory and 33% marks in the practical in addition to the 33% aggregate in order to qualify in that subject.
  3. For awarding the % at grades, the Board shall rank all passing students and will classify them in grades as follows:
    1. A-1 Top 1/8th of the passed candidates
    2. A-2 Next 1/8th of the passed candidates
    3. B-1 Next 1/8th of the passed candidates
    4. B-2 Next 1/8th of the passed candidates
    5. C-1 Next 1/8th of the passed candidates

Pass Criteria (Senior School Certificate Examination)

  1. A candidate will be eligible for a Passing Certificate from the Board if he/she gets a grade higher than E in all subjects, assessed internally unless he/she is exempted. Failing this, the result of the external examination will be withheld, but not for a period of more than one year.
  2. In order to be declared as having passed the examination, a candidate shall obtain a grade higher than E in all five subjects of the external examination – whether main or compartmental. The passing marks in each subject shall be 33%. In case of a subject involving practical work, a candidate must obtain 33% marks in theory and 33% marks in practical separately in addition to 33% marks in aggregate in order to pass in that subject.
  3. No overall division/distinction/aggregate shall be awarded.
  4. For a candidate offering an additional subject, the following norms shall be applicable:
    • A language offered as an additional subject may replace a language in the event of a candidate failing in the same, provided the candidate has English or Hindi as one of the languages after replacement.
    • An elective subject offered as an additional subject may replace one of the elective subjects offered by the candidate.It may also replace a language provided, provided the candidate has English or Hindi as one of the languages after replacement.
    • The additional language offered at the elective level may replace an elective subject,provided the number of offered languages shall not exceed two after replacement.
    • Candidates exempted from one or more internal examination subjects shall be eligible for appearing in the external examination. Their result will be declared, subject to the fulfilment of other conditions laid down in the Passing Criteria.

Preparation

Class 12

Preparing for the examination in the best possible manner is the key to scoring well. You need to know what to study, how to study, how to manage time and where to look for references.

Below is a list of subject wise pointers for your preparations:

Mathematics:

  1. Mathematics is a very practical subject. The best way to learn it is by practicing the problems. No matter how clear a method seems to be, there will most definitely be issues when using that method to solve a problem. It is highly recommended that the problems be practised till you’re highly confident about solving them.
  2. Being one of the most dreaded subjects among students, it is important that you spend more time on working on areas you’re weak at. Many students tend to keep practising the areas they’re good in. Although this does no harm, it is advisable that you spend more time for your weak areas. Divide time for each unit, depending on its mark weightage and your level of proficiency in it. You should also focus on important topics such as the ones given below:
    1. Elementary Transformation to Find the Inverse of a Square Matrix (Exercise 3.4)
    2. Properties of Determinants (Exercise 4.2)
    3. Matrix Method (Exercise 4.6)
    4. Limit of Sum (Exercise 7.8)
    5. Properties of Definite Integrals (Exercise 7.11)
    6. Application of Integrals (Chapter 8)
    7. Concept of Line and Plane in 3D (Chapter 11)
    8. Linear Programming (Chapter 12)
    9. Bayes’ Theorem (Exercise 13.3)
    10. Maxima/Minima Application Problems (Exercise 6.5)
  3. During the exam, it is important that you utilise the ‘cooling time’ of 15 minutes to read the question paper carefully. This is even more important when it comes to questions on Probability. While they can be tricky, you can easily score if you’re concentrated. Attempt sections that carry higher weightage of marks first.

Biology:

  1. As a subject, Biology lets you score well in the board exams. You just need to remember the terminologies, practice your diagrams and be thorough with the different processes. When at school, listen carefully and make notes. This facilitates your preparation for the exams. Biology’s subject matter can be serious; its theoretical nature requiring revisiting the subject multiple times before you have it down. Therefore, using a good memory retention technique like flash cards is a good way to prepare for your exams.

Physics:

  1. Practice derivations at least 3 times each. Pay special attention to those in electrostatics, magnetism and optics, since they can prove to be priceless.
  2. Based on the derivation you learned, solve at least 3 sample questions. This will tell you where you’re going wrong and how could you improve.
  3. Attempt as many conceptual questions on those derivations as you can. This will help you understand the subject better.
  4. Look up new questions on the same context from previous question papers, sample papers and other model test papers.
  5. Time yourself while answering sample papers as it will help with efficient time management during the exams.

Chemistry:

  1. Revise the notes you’ve prepared throughout the year. This will help you memorise the subject in a systematic manner.
  2. Make notes of various formulae and stick them upon a wall or your study table. Try to read and understand these notes every time you come across them.
  3. Pick topics like P-Block elements, D- and F-Block elements and familiarize yourself with their basics.
  4. Thoroughly understand topics like Raoult’s Law, Adsorption Isotherm, Nernst Equation, Molar Mass Determination and Packing fraction as they are frequently asked during examinations.
  5. Solve at least 1 sample question for each topic you’ve learnt. This will tell you where you’re going wrong and how you could improve.
  6. For organics, revise famous reactions like Cannizzaro, Aldol, Hoffmann, Friedel-Crafts etc.

English:

  1. English is not about mugging up lessons, but all about how well you express your thoughts. Pay close attention to your grammar – especially tenses.

Class 11

Subjects in Class 11 are designed to provide the base upon which students will build their knowledge and careers. It is therefore important to prepare well by understanding the basic concepts thoroughly. This can be developed by regularly referring some good books as well as practical experience that comes from practice over time. Some basic ideas on how to approach the subjects are described here.

  • English:Practice the art of speaking and writing. Expose yourself to conversations, assimilate the information you receive and try to apply it in situations. Most English teachers say, ‘The best way to learn improve written ability is to try and think in the language itself’. Listening to audio renditions of the poems or prose helps too.
  • Physics & Chemistry: Understanding basic ideas and concepts is essential. It helps you not only in your board exams, but also in engineering qualification exams like JEE. While there are many laws and theorems that need to be written verbatim, you should still solve problems in both subjects with the intent to learn the idea, instead of memorizing the solution. Always pay attention during practicals as it’s the only place one is taught to use scientific equipment.
  • Biology: This subject is strenuous on the memory as its concepts are purely informational. An effective way to approach this subject is to by visualizing the functions of the prescribed phenomena and by correlating them with the analogies you’re familiar with. Pay special attention to the names and spellings of the various terminologies.
  • Maths:The best way to learn Math is by practicing problems and arriving at their solutions. Byhearting a method will lead almost always lead to issues when you use it to solve a problem. Therefore, you should practice them till you’re confident.
  • Computer Science:This is another practical subject, with a lot of history and logic that needs to learnt in order to develop proficiency. The various programmes need to be practiced upon. Just like Maths, merely understanding concepts alone won’t help. Only with sufficient practice will you understand how to approach a problem and solve it.

Class 10

  • English:Readingthe text wellis enough to begin with. You also need to be thorough with your grammar and writing skills as those are sections where maximum marks can be lost.
  • Chemistry: Read chapters from the book, learn new definitions and solve some numericals from the end of each chapter.
  • Physics: This subject and its numerical problems require more practice. Learn definitions of the various units of measurements and make sure to understand the causes of various phenomena mentioned in the textbook.
  • Biology: Make sure to familiarize yourself with the various terminologies and concepts in the textbook. You can also use some reference books to better understand them.
  • Maths: A highly practice-oriented subject, Maths needs time and attention. Make sure you study well, understand the concepts and then put in lots of effort in practicing them. Don’t forget to look up practice papers from previous years as you’ll have to learn how to write formal proofs. Be very careful with this, because proofs generally cost a lot of marks in the Geometry section.
  • Hindi: This is the part of your curriculum where you can score. Be very thorough with semantics and practice writing the subject daily. Accomplish this, and the rest will fall in place.

Class 9

Focus and hard work is the key to cracking the exams. All subjects though, require special and specific tips.

  • Mathematics: Practice each type of problem from the NCERT book. Do the same from the reference book you’re using. Learn formulae, theorems and their proofs thoroughly.
  • Chemistry: Read the chapters from the book, learn new definitions and solve numericals from the end of each chapter.
  • Physics: Practice numerical problems ample times, learn definitions of units of measurements and remember the causes of various phenomena mentioned in the textbook.
  • Biology:This subject is all about mugging up. Just read the textbook and maybe a reference book along with it.
  • Social Science: History and civics require mugging, so don’t hesitate in doing the same. Economics is conceptual and will need you to understand the various constituent concepts. Geography involves a bit of both, since it’s conceptual as well as theoretical. Understand its concepts and mug up the definitions if need be. What you do need to practice though, is drawings maps.
  • English: Get into habit of keeping a pocket dictionary with you all the time, in case you come across new words. Practice speaking with friends and writing essays and letters in English and continuously work on your grammar; using reference books. Read up the various chapters and try to understand them as thoroughly as possible.
  • Sanskrit: Just like English, it requires consistent practice in speaking, reading and writing. Use reference books from time to time.
  • Hindi: Just do the same as English and Sanskrit.

Class 8

Begin with procuring the precise syllabus, study material, and exam details. This forms the basis of your studies over the entire exam preparation period.

  • English: Focus on grammar and writing sections as mistakes in these two sections cost students the most marks. Writing sections, practice papers and grammar tests like editing and omission paragraphs will help you, since they require intensive practice and demand you to be thorough.
  • Mathematics: Stick to concept building first. NCERT contains conceptual questions and will help you build a strong base. Only once you’re thorough with it, should you move to RS Aggarwal books for the Olympiad study.
  • Science: These are your formative years and require you to pay strong attention to chapters in Physics and Chemistry. Since Biology is mostly theoretical at this stage, you don’t need to practice it a lot. Physics and Chemistry though, demand intensive study so you should make sure you understand their concepts well and try to solve numericals, if any.
  • Social Science: Contrary to common belief, you shouldn’t mug up social sciences. Concepts will be much clearer once you understand the fundamentals behind them. Doing so will give you less to swallow and more to retain and recollect during exams.
  • Hindi/Sanskrit: Both these subjects are high-scoring but demand intensive practice. Collect several practice papers and make sure you practice a lot of sample papers for the same.
