It is to bring to your notice that CBSE has decided to follow an interdisciplinary approach in value education where values are intermingled with the content of all the major subjects in classes IX to XII. The Board has also decided to assess students for 5 percent weighting in the major subjects through questions which will be integrated with the content of the subject and analyzed on the basis of the values it reflects.
The questions will be for 5 marks in a question paper of 100 marks and 3-4 marks in a question paper of 70-90 marks. This will be effective from the Summative Assessments-II 2012-2013 in classes IX, X. The Board Exam in 2013 for Classes X (Summative-II) and Class XII will also have such questions.
Sample Papers for Class XII: Mathematics
Sample Papers for Class X: Mathematics
