Nagpur: Only two months are left for Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Boards examination. For Class 12 students, it is the most crucial time of the year as the marks obtained in these exams would decide the future of the students and their choice of higher studies.
With hard work and sincerity, it is also important for students to plan their preparation well. Knowing the subjects, important topics and strategising accordingly can save time and also enable stress-free preparation.
Here are a few pointers for Class 12 students (Mathematics):
Topic-wise marks distribution
Relations and Functions: 10 marks
Algebra: 13 marks
Calculus: 44 marks
Vectors & Three-dimensional Geometry: 17 marks
Linear Programming: 06 marks
Probability: 10 marks
Question Paper is divided into three sections:
Section A: Six 1-mark questions
Section B: Thirteen 4-marks questions
Section C: Seven 6-mark questions
Some quick tips:
Most of the questions have very similar pattern as in the NCERT text book. It also includes additional exercises of NCERT. It is absolutely necessary that one goes through every question in the book
There will definitely be a six-marker from Linear Programming, one from Area Under Curves and one from Differential Equations
There will be couple of four-markers too, asking the candidates to evaluate Integrals and Differentiate functions
Knowing various definitions is also important as there are a few questions that can be completely solved only if one knows the definition (i.e. definition of a Function, Direction Ratios, Singular Matrices and etc.)
There are few questions that require the candidates to prove the given statements or equations. These mostly come from the NCERT text book
Since Calculus has more weightage, it is important that candidates spend a lot of time on it. But also the topics such as Probability, Algebra and Linear Programming should not be ignored as the problems from these topics are quite easy and straight forward.
