CBSE conducted the Class 10 English term-1 board exam on November 11. The exam was conducted in an MCQ pattern and candidates were allotted a time of 90 minutes to complete the exam. This was the last exam of term-1 for CBSE Class 10 students. The paper was rated moderate with questions based on logical understanding. 

The paper pattern was based on the sample paper issued by the board for the English paper. Students who had practiced the sample paper must have found it easier to solve the paper, as per experts.

CBSE will release the Class 10 English term 1 2021 answer key after the teachers upload the OMR sheets on the CBSE portal. The exam is being conducted in OMR sheets for the first time. The candidates can only use a black or blue point pen to darken the correct option.

“It was a standard paper filled with good logical and conceptual understanding, especially for the literature and writing part. The main error in the paper was questioned no 13 and question 14 as it did not have questions but only options were there,” Deepti Sawhney, Dean of Innovation at Silverline Prestige School, Ghaziabad said.

Meanwhile Arpana Bohra, English teacher at JAIN International Residential School (JIRS), Bengaluru said that the paper required in-depth thinking and a good understanding of the concepts learnt.

“It was a standard paper filled with questions that checked on the logical and conceptual understanding. Reading comprehension 1 and 2 were moderately difficult. The paper was solvable within 90 minutes. Grammar was easy,” Maheshwari P, English teacher at JAIN International Residential School (JIRS), Bengaluru said.

Seema Kaur Principal, Pacific World School said that the literature section focused on an in-depth reading of the chapters and also focused on language comprehension with respect to phrases etc. Q 35 had very close options that may have confused the students.
