2. Not only the number of questions but the typology of the question has also been changed.
Now there will be 5 MCQs, 9 very short answer type questions and 3 short answer type questions from one passage out of two. For the passage two there will only 2 long questions related to it.
3. In the case of Section A, the questions has been reduced from 24 to 19. a total of 30 marks have been attributed to the section.
4. Five questions have been reduced from the question paper. Earlier the students had to answer 40 questions but now there will be only 35 questions.
Revised marking scheme and corresponding sample paper has been made by the CBSE.
Both sample paper as well as marking scheme has been made available on the official website.
Students appearing for the exam in 2019 are recommended to go through the pattern of the question paper.
