I would like to get the lesson-wise answers for the English textbook questions (‘One Flamingo, Two Vistas’) of Class 12.
Solved and readymade answers to the questions given at the end of the lessons of the English textbooks may not be available. The best way to prepare would be to read the lessons thoroughly and prepare the answers in your own words.
I am in Class 12. Is it enough to solve the NCERT Textbook of Mathematics for the March 2008 examinations? Is there any chance that questions may be from topics which are not given in the latest NCERT book but given in the last year’s addition to the NCERT book? For example, the questions based on the applications of vectors. In the new syllabus it mentions only the name of the topic, that is, dot and cross product of vectors. This means it also covers the topic from applications and geometrical applications. These topics were specially mentioned in the old book but not in the latest book. I am confused. Which is the best book for 10+2 Mathematics?
The latest NCERT textbooks cover all the topics in the syllabus and form the basis for the March 2008 Board examination in Mathematics. However, it is not essential that the questions will be exactly the same as given in the textbooks. Problems can be asked from any source provided they are within the scope of the prescribed syllabus. Hence, there is no restriction on reference material for accessing such problems. You may also consult the latest sample question paper in the subject published by the Board, which are available on the CBSE website www.cbse.nic.in
I would like you to suggest some ways to improve my English skills before I face my Board Examinations this year. Many friends lose marks in English, leading to a sharp fall in their aggregate.
S. Vidya Sagar
You are right. Some students do lose marks in the aggregate on account of their poor performance in English. As in other subjects, a student can improve his or her performance in English also by regular reading and written practice.
Since the time available at your disposal is short, we would advise you to read your textbooks thoroughly and have practice in the various writing tasks given in your main course book. Also go through the Sample Question Papers given at the end of the Workbook and practise on similar lines.
What should be the age of a student in Class 10 in CBSE Board Examination? What should be the age for Class 7 in CBSE schools?
A student should satisfy the requirement of age limits (minimum and maximum) as determined by the State/UT Government and applicable to the place where the school is located. CBSE as such does not prescribe any age limit.
I am in Class 12 (Commerce stream). I would like to know whether the accountancy course includes guarantee of profit (fundamentals) and would marks be reduced for not writing narrations in various journal entries. Is high-powered money in the economics course? Should we follow the NCERT book for Economics, which contains many irrelevant topics, or would S.K.Aggarwal be better?
1 (a) The Accountancy syllabus for examination year 2008 includes guarantee of profits under unit on Accounting for partnership firms.
(b) In the Marking Schemes prepared for Accountancy papers in the Boards examination, the general instructions to examiners include – “Upto 25 per cent marks are deducted for not drawing proper format of journal, ledger and not giving narrations for journal entries.” Thus it is very necessary that the formats of journal and ledger accounts are proper and narrations are given in the journal entries.
2. High powered money is not included in the Economics syllabus for examination year 2008. CBSE does not recommend any book except NCERT textbooks at secondary and senior secondary level. In Economics, the Board has also developed supplementary reading material in Economics for parts A and B which is available on its website. The material is available in both the versions — Hindi and English.
I am a student of Class 12 (Commerce stream) CBSE and want to know the exact course of Business Studies.

I am studying in Class 12 (Science stream). There is no information about the Practical Examination or about the marking scheme of any subjects?

The break-up of marks in the practical examination is also given in that document. Marking scheme in all Science subjects for the previous years examinations have been published by the Board as priced documents and are available from the Board’s Publication Store at PS-1-2, Institutional Area, I.P.

I passed Class 12 from a CBSE affiliated school in 2003. I was searching the NCERT website for the names of the English text books (English Core) we were taught in Class 12 in 2002. I don’t remember the names of the books.
The names of the English textbooks taught in 2002 were:
1. The People — published by the NCERT
2. The Web of Life — published by the NCERT
I am a student of Class 10. According to CBSE, material written in the bracket in the science book will not be asked in the examination. But there is a question in the exercise from the bracket (aqua regia) also. Will the paper be purely based on NCERT books or some questions will be from outside?
The content matter given in the boxes with pink border in NCERT textbooks in non evaluative and the same is stated in the preface of the textbook. The textbook published by NCERT is the only book recommended by the Board for the public examination. You may also refer to Secondary School Curriculum -2008, Volume-I for knowing the exact syllabus. Further you may refer to the sample papers published by the Board available on the CBSE website. ( www.cbse.nic.in)
I am studying in Class 10 at DAV Public School, BSEB Colony, Patna. I have confusion regarding format for Letter writing, Notice writing, Message and Postcard. Could you please guide me or tell me the website links from where I can get the format.
Samples of Letter Writing, Notice Writing, Message and Postcard are given in your Main Course Book (MCB) and Work Book (WB) in which the format to be used is also provided. Further, you may refer to the two sample papers with Marking Scheme given in the workbook for your ready reference.
I am a student of Class 12 and I am supposed to take the 2008 examination. However, the school management says that I do not have the required attendance for appearing at the exam. I have only about 35 per cent attend ance as I had rerlapse of typhoid. I am very worried, how can I take the March test. Please tell me a way out.
As per the examination bye-laws of the CBSE, a student should have 75 per cent attendance to be eligible for appearing in the Board examination. In the case of students with 60 per cent attendance in Class 10 or 12 the shortage of attendance up to 15 per cent can be condoned by the Chairman, CBSE.
In cases where attendance is below 60 per cent, if the shortage is due to exceptional circumstances created on medical grounds due to prolonged illness, or any other serious reason like loss of father, mother, etc., the Principal of the school may submit a recommendation suitably substantiated by documentary evidence not later than three weeks before the commencement of the examination to the Regional Officer, CBSE of the concerned region for condonation by the Chairman, CBSE who may issue orders as he may deem proper.
The Economics syllabus of CBSE is different from the NCERT-prescribed syllabus for Class 12, 2007-2008. Which one should we follow?
You are advised to follow the Board’s syllabus for examination purposes. CBSE does not recommend any book except NCERT textbooks at secondary and senior secondary level. In Economics the Board has also developed supplementary reading material for Parts A and B, whichis available in its website. It is available both in English and Hindi.
My son is going to appear for Class 10 CBSE exams in the academic year 2008-09. I heard that certain percentage of marks obtained by the student in Class 9 examination is also added to the Board examination marks.
Yes, Class 9 final scores in the subject of Mathematics and Social Science form a part of the weightage accorded to summative and formative test components of the internal assessment constituting 20 per cent of the Class 10 Board examination marks in these subjects.
I want to know if NCERT books are sufficient for Class 10 Board examinations. I want to be assured before the Board examinations.
For your Class X Board exams, first and foremost, you should thoroughly study the NCERT textbooks which will be the basis for the paper setter. However, questions on applications of concepts within the scope of the syllabus need not be restricted to the textbooks alone.
