Teachoo has studied the Maths Sample Paper, made solutions for you, made videos of each and every question.

Now, lets see how to score maximum marks in the Exam!

 

From this year, the Maths Paper is of 80 marks.

The remaining 20 marks are

  • Internal Assessment (10 Marks) - Out of the 3 internal tests conducted, your school will take the best 2.
    Make sure you score maximum in them
  • Activity done throughout the year (5 marks) - Students do 10 activities (from the NCERT Lab Manual). The Lab Notebook kept is of 5 marks
  • Activity performance in Year End Test (3 marks) - Out of the 10 activities above, you will do 1 activity in the test.
  • Viva of the activity performed in the test (2 marks) - There will be some viva questions of the activity performed above. Don’t take pressure

 

Now, let’s talk about the remaining 80 marks.

The CBSE Maths Sample Paper - Class 12 for 2020 Boards has been summarised here.

Important Points to note

  • Binary operations from Chapter 1 Class 12 (Ex 1.4) is not in syllabus

  • NCERT Questions are very important  - 2 Questions of 4 marks, 1 Question of 6 marks have come straight from NCERT .

  • Similar Questions to NCERT have also come - 5 Questions have come from NCERT where only values are changed

  • Linear Programming (Chapter 12) is of 5 marks - so either 1 question of 4 marks and 1 one mark question, or 1 question of of 6 marks will come

  • In linear programming question, correct graph is of 2 marks

  • 1 Question of 6 marks will come of Chapter 8 Areas

  • In Area question, correct figure has 1 marks

  • 1 Question of 6 or 4 marks will come of Limit as a sum or Definite Integral

  • 1 Question of 6 or 4 marks will come for finding Inverse of Matrix (by Properties of Matrix or Determinant)

  • 1 mark question has 10 Multiple Choice Questions, 5 Fill in the Blanks and 5 answering questions

  • In Answering questions, there is step marking. In MCQ and Fill in the blanks, no step marking

  • Chapter 13 Probability Random Variable question or  Bayes Theorem Question will come of 4 marks or 6 marks

  • There is formula to find Area of parallelogram when diagonals are given

  • And there is a formula for Determinant of A-1 i..e |A-1|

  • The Question from Chapter 11 - 3D Geometry will require very good understanding of concepts.


Tips for CBSE Boards 2020 

  • Revise the chapters from the Concept wise. Check out the video below


  • In the exam, start doing the 1 mark questions first. Then do the questions which you think you can do first.
    Example - If you know how to solve Linear Programming Question, do that first.

  • Keep in mind the step marking in the exam. Don't miss any steps! There are marks for correct figure, and correct formula

  • Do this year's Sample Paper atleast

  • Questions from Supplementary Exercise can come. This year's sample paper had a question of 3 vectors coplanar (which is in Supplementary Exercise of Chapter 10 Vector Algebra)

  • You should know the basic Concept of each topic of all the chapters. This is very important because most question are conceptual. (You can check concepts by clicking a topic in Concept Wise)

  • Keep 2 spare pens, pencil and a scale (ruler) in your geometry box
