India Today Education spoke to two experienced CBSE Chemistry Board examiners regarding the Chemistry paper analysis who said the Chemistry Class 12 exam paper was very straightforward and then even average students could expect to score well.

Today we are going to talk about the Class 12 board exam upcoming paper Chemistry which will be held on 13 March 2018. After holding the Physics exam on March 7, 2018, the Chemistry test was held after a gap of 6 days.

The CBSE syllabus specifies that schools could choose between two texts - "Diary of a young girl" by Anne Frank or "Story of my life" by Helen Keller - and students had to attempt any one question for 10 marks in the boards. However, students now pursuing these subjects in class 9 have been allowed to continue it. CBSE has also changed names of some of the subjects - sanskrit communicative has been replaced by sanskrit and Foundations of Information technology has been renamed as Computer Applications.

Central Board of Secondary Education sticked to its exam pattern and marking scheme as released earlier. The question paper was divided into three parts-Part A was unseen passages, part B was grammar and Part C was literature which students found to be bit confusing. The subject wise marks distribution & marking scheme was strictly adhered to this time. Most of the questions in the exam were direct from NCERT Chemistry books followed in CBSE curriculum.
