Question Paper Design

English Language and Literature

Class X

The design of the question papers in English - Language and Literature for class X has undergone a few changes. They are as under:

Section A --Reading: 15 marks (Question 1-3)

In the existing scheme of the question paper students answer questions based on three unseen passages (total--500 words) carrying five marks each –all MCQs.

The change proposed is that students be given two passages (carrying 5+5 marks) out of three which are based on MCQ responses. One passage with questions carrying 5 marks should be such that it requires effort on the part of the students to supply the responses.

In the proposed question paper scheme

_ Students will be expected to attempt three passages carrying five marks each.

_ Passage types will include literary, discursive or factual. One out of the three passages will be a poem.

_ Two out of three passages will have Multiple Choice Questions carrying 5+5=10 marks

_ One out of three passages will have questions wherein students will be expected to supply the responses. This will carry 5marks. Question types will be :

• Sentence completion

• Gap filling

Note: The weightage given to MCQs to be reduced from the existing 15 Marks in the Reading Section to 10 Marks

Section B--Writing: 15 marks (Question 4-6)—No change
