The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has released the sample papers for Classes X and XII ahead of the Board exams. For students, the papers make for happy reading. This is because the number of internal-choice questions for most subjects has been increased significantly. That is not the only major change though. The question papers have now been segregated into clear-cut sections. For example, the Science paper had no sections earlier; but now, it has five. This will help students get some much-needed clarity while planning their exam-taking strategy.

Students can take a look at the class 10 sample papers and their marking scheme posted on the official CBSE site here. Following is a list of the major subjects in class 10, wherein the number of internal-choice questions has been increased:

1)Mathematics
2)Science
