Before starting the preparation for the Board examination, students need to know about the changes in the examination pattern and the deleted portions.

From this year onwards the theory paper will consist of 60 marks and accordingly the weightage of marks for each unit has been changed.

The chapter Chemical Reactions and some important chemical compounds will be of six marks.

The chapters Energy and Life Processes will be of 17 marks each.

The chapter Natural Resources is of 14 marks while Our Environment and Exploring Space are of three marks each.

There will be a written paper of 20 marks based on the practical syllabus. It will be of one hour and 30 minutes duration. This paper will have 20 questions of half mark each and 10 questions of one mark each.

It is very important to read the chapters from the NCERT book. Pay attention to the chemical reactions and the diagrams. Write and learn them.

While attempting numericals, separate the given useful data and logically proceed towards answers by using correct formulae. Check the unit systems.

In each chapter, learning the examples are important.

Remember examiners always look for keywords in each answer. So, write to the point in minimum words. It will be better if you underline the important points or the keywords.
