In Civics, questions were mostly asked from the chapters ‘The Union Parliament’, ‘The Supreme Court’ and ‘Prime Minister and the Council of Ministers'. Most of the questions were of the easy to medium level in this section.

 

In History, the questions were easy to medium and most of the questions were asked from the chapters ‘Gandhi and the National Movement’, ‘Growth of Nationalism’ and ‘The United Nations and its Major Agencies’.

One of the tricky questions in Part I, Question 2 was: ‘Name the two books that Dada Bhai Naoroji authored explaining the ‘Drain of India’s wealth’.

Let us now look at the unit-wise breakup of the History section of the question paper.

 

The figure below shows the unit-wise breakup of the Civics section of the question paper.

 

Overall, we can say that the paper was easy. Students who had solved past year papers would be extremely happy as about 50–60% of questions which featured in the History/Civics exam paper were also asked in the Board papers of the last five years. So, we expect that most students who had solved past year papers and had prepared well will score 80% and more in the paper. We wish our students all the best for the rest of the papers.
