Guess which paper is giving the most jitters to Class X students of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE)? Not mathematics, but social science, say counsellors.

Apparently, students have been making a rush for advice on how to tackle the social science paper, which will kickstart the exams on March 1. The paper involves four subjects: history, civics, geography and economics.

"As examinations near, the stress factor is going up among students, but it's the social science paper that is creating a major worry for students," said Etishree Bhati, one of the CBSE's recognised counsellors.

"I get over 60 calls daily, and most students have a problem with the subject," said Bhati, who is visiting different states to help students.
