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
  • Remember all the Theorems and their proofs.

  • Remember all formulas of all Chapters. Formula sheet is provided for all chapters

  • Important questions have been marked in all chapters. Check them while revising

  • It is important to Revise the topics from Concept wise . 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.
