how to prepare an optimum question paper, the criteria of marking scheme and
the changes that have brought in this year question paper. There were various
topics which have been eliminated and many new additions were done which were brought
into the notice of teachers. Later on various topics where teachers needed more
clarity were taken up and concluded with two activities-one was role play and
