The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is a central review board that holds annual board examinations of classes 10 and 12. The ongoing board review of CBSE 2020 is scheduled to take place in February and March months. The test format and other such information must be fully known to the students appearing for these exams.
While different students have a strong grip on different subjects, in the field of science there are many students facing difficulties. Students also feel uncertain about the subject and can be difficult to score. Nonetheless, students can easily score high marks in the exam with the right amount of planning and hard work and a good understanding of the test scheme.
There is a very clear trend in the CBSE Class 10 Science test. This includes philosophy as well as practical aspects. While the theoretical examination is 80 marks, the functional examination is given 20 points. Therefore, the experimental examination’s cumulative points add up to 100. The theory paper is split into three parts for the Science Exam–Section A, Section B and Section C. To finish their essay, students are given a time limit of three hours.
There are 30 questions in all in the three chapters, all of which are compulsory. In each section of the paper, though, there are options. The types of questions in each chapter of the question paper are as follows–
Section A– Questions are strongly analytical in this chapter. For each question, one mark is allocated. There, students can consider three types of questions–
- Multiple choice questions
- Very Short Answer type questions
- Assertion-reason type questions
Section B– This segment asks three-mark questions together. Students are encouraged to write short and to the point answers in order to answer these questions. It is not appropriate to use more than 50-60 words.
Section C– This is a long section. There are 5 marks for each question here, for which students need to answer in depth. 80-90 Words are enough.
Here are some of the suggestions students can include in their preparation process to achieve high marks in their science test–
- Follow the NCERT syllabus-Questions from this syllabus are extremely likely to be asked as it is repeated every year. CBSE’s official website, www.cbse.nic.in.
- Make regular notes-It is helpful for fast corrections and write down important points in a clean manner.
- Prepare the frequently repeated questions-Questions that are answered every now and then are relevant and need to be properly prepared beforehand.
- Follow the sample papers-It gives you a clear idea of the paper trend and the problem form. Using the reference articles in mock screening will also be useful.
- Contrast the preparation of each subject-To prevent lopsided planning all subjects must be given ample time. It is not recommended to concentrate only on one topic or to schedule all topics at once.
