CBSE Releases Latest Sample Papers for 2015 Board Examinations

CBSE has released new sample papers for upcoming XII Board Examinations. There are some significant changes being done . I am listing the changes I saw in Physics Sample Paper.

1. The number of questions have been altered . Now it will have total 26 Questions.
2. There will be five sections.
3. Section A contains five questions of one mark each, Section B contains five questions of
two marks each, Section C contains twelve questions of three marks each, Section D
contains one value based question of four marks and Section E contains three questions
of five marks each.
4.There is no overall choice. However, an internal choice has been provided in one
question of two marks, one question of three marks and all the three questions of five
marks weight-age.
5. Like the previous sample paper it appears involving more conceptual application i.e. won't be a typical theoretical "ratafication"type of board paper.
