Section C: Literature, Text Books, and Long Reading Text
Tip: This portion should be attempted first. There are high chances that you will leave a positive impression on the examiner. Usually, its the only portion where students score cent percent.
-Start from the bottom. First start the highest mark portion, it’s a general philosophy that student spent more time in writing the first things and then the point to point answer came.
– Be very specific, CBSE follows guidelines of marking on the point based system. If you have to answer 6 marks question the examiner is expecting you to write 12 points straight forwards. 3 More points would be a bingo and will give you whole 6/6 marks on that question.
