The new paper will also have less number of ‘very short’ and ‘short’ answers as well as less marks for the ‘value-based questions’. The paper will be of 100 marks.


According to the new notification, the long format questions have been divided into two categories- four marks questions and six marks questions. Now the long answer questions will be six with three choices. The short answer question has been reduced to four and will now carry two marks.
