In the upcoming Chhatisgarh Board examinations, candidates will not get any extra answer sheets. Class 10 students will get a 32-page long answer booklet while class 12 students will get a 42-page answer booklet for physics and mathematics exams, according to a recent circular released by the Chhattisgarh Board of Secondary Education (CGBE).
In the first page of the answer booklets, candidates will only have to fill in their details including name, roll number etc. They are not allowed to use both sides of the page for writing answers. This mean students will effectively get only 30 pages. Students, as per the board, will have to practice limiting the length of their answers.
