Pune: Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has released the marking schemes for students of Class X and XII, for the Board examinations scheduled to be held in March 2018.
The marking scheme has been published on the CBSE website, to be accessed freely by schools and students.
CV Madhavi, Principal, DAV Public School, Pune said, “This year, after a long time, many schools will train their students to answer the mandatory board examination. Even before Class X, the students don’t have the habit of answering a full 100 marks examination. The marking scheme will help the students understand the kind of weightage that has to be given to different topics, which helps them study better.”
Madhavi also said that this will help teachers to train the students to write the examination, with a better understanding of the topics, as well as time management.
The subjects for which the marking scheme has been notified for class 10 are Mathematics, Science, Social Science, English (Communications) and English (Language and Literature).
For class 12, the marking scheme has been notified for subjects including Accountancy, Biology, Business Studies, Chemistry, Economics, English, Hindi, Mathematics and Physics.
“As only a few schools, the ones that have their own higher secondary classes, had the privilege to opt their students out of the Board examinations, not many schools have been given the option. So, only a few schools will have to deal with the change that we are speaking of. However, in Board examination, where the syllabus to be studied is so huge, the marking scheme will definitely help the students prepare for the examination in a better way,” Mala Jaitley, Principal, The Orbis School said.
