CBSE CLASS 11: AN OVERVIEW
CBSE Class 11 is a crucial year for students because it sets the foundation for all the important topics that will be covered not only in class 12 but in further studies too. It is important to study sincerely in Class 11 not only for the CBSE Board exams but also for the competitive exams that will ensure entry into a good college. Students should utilize the Class 11 academic year to build their basics, doing so will help them to face the board exam confidently next year.
SpeEdLabs offers courses for Maths which is not only designed to ace the CBSE board exams but also make the students ready for Engineering and Medical Entrance tests. The CBSE curriculum framework is designed to ensure that students are not under great pressure and that books are made interactive and interesting. Also, many fun activities are included in the chapters making the whole process of passing on information to students effective and healthy.
The question paper consist of 26 questions divided into three sections and . Section A comprises of 06 questions of one mark each, section B comprises of 13 questions of four marks each and section C comprises of 07 questions of six marks each.
All questions in Section are to be answered in one word, one sentence or as per the exact requirement of the question. There is no overall choice. However, internal choice has been provided in 04 questions of four marks each and 02 questions of six marks each.
You have to attempt only one of the alternatives in all such questions.
