According to sources, the questions will be for 5 marks in a paper of 100 marks and 3-4 marks in a question paper of 70-90 marks. This will be effective from the forthcoming final examinations classes XI and XII in 2013. Further, the board exam in 2013 (class XII) will also have such questions. All schools affiliated to CBSE have been requested to make it a part of their assessment in class XI.
