## Important Points to Note

• Maths Basic has almost all the questions from NCERT - 4 One Mark Questions, 2 Two Mark Questions, 3 Three Mark Questions, 6 Four Mark Questions (Including OR questions) have come straight from NCERT

• 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

• When cancelling square roots, don't forget to write plus-minus sign ±

• Writing units is important or half marks is cut, eg: x =3 is wrong, x = 3 metre is right.

• Formula of all chapters has 1/2 marks

• Formula of Statistics (Chapter 14) has 1 mark

• In Chapter 9 Heights and Distances, 1 mark is given for correct figure

• 1 Question of Theorem will come. (Of Chapter 6 or 10)

• 1 4-Marks question of Construction will come

• Remember the formula for Length of an arc (Chapter 12)
Length of arc = θ/360 × 2πr
It is used when length of arc is given, and we need to find angle

• In questions where the answer can be found easily (like finding curved surface area of frustum if height and radius is given), calculation is difficult. 1 mark will be deducted if you have not found the exact answer

• All questions of the Sample Paper has been solved, with marking scheme also given of each and every step. Click next to start doing the questions

## Tips for CBSE Boards 2019
