The Council of Indian Certificate of Secondary Education conducted the History/Civics examination today. The paper was relatively easy as most of the questions were straightforward and direct. The question paper was of 80 marks and was divided into two parts and sub-sections.

In Part I, Section A, questions were mostly asked from the chapter ‘The Judiciary’ and ‘The Union Parliament’. Most of the questions were of the medium level in this section.

In Section B, questions asked were evenly distributed from the History chapters. Most of these questions were easy.

In Part II, Section A, questions were very easy and were asked from the three main chapters of ‘The Judiciary’, ‘The Union Parliament’ and ‘The President and the Vice President’.

Also, in Section B, most of the questions were easy. Students who had solved the past year papers would be extremely happy as about 35–40% of questions which featured here were also asked in the Board papers of the last five years.

Overall, the paper was easy with a few medium level questions, and we expect that most students who prepared well will score 85+ marks in the paper.

But do remember that in Social Sciences, along with good preparation, the art of writing a good answer is of extreme importance. So if students have written their answers with a proper introduction and conclusion, they would pass the exam in flying colours.

All the Best for your Exams!
