Section A --Reading: 20 marks (Question 1-4)
In the existing scheme of the question paper Students answer questions based on four unseen passages carrying five marks each –all the questions are MCQs.
The change proposed is that students be given two passages (carrying 5+5 marks) out of four which are based on MCQ responses. The other two should require effort on the part of the students to supply the responses.
In the proposed question paper scheme
_ Students will be expected to attempt four passages carrying five marks each.
_ Passage types will include literary, discursive or factual. One out of the four passages will be a poem.
