This marks division, as well as number of questions per section is exactly the same as last year.
There are total 2 + 2 + 4 + 3 = 11 OR Questions.
Observations from the paper
Some 1 mark questions have 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
NCERT Questions are very important - 3 Questions out of 30 have come straight from NCERT. Other questions is very similar
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
- Question 30 is tricky. Please check it.
Tips for CBSE Boards 2019
Do the chapters from the Concept wise. Check out the video below

Important questions have been marked in all chapters. Check them while revising
It is important to Revise the topics from
. Just check the theory, and the questions in order they are given
- Make sure you have 2 pencils, 1 compass, scale, eraser, sharpener with you in the geometry box
Make sure you do atleast this year's sample paper.
- Do not miss any steps. Write each and every step possible.
