Computer Science class 12 CBSE Sample Paper 2023-24

Computer Science Class 12 CBSE Sample Paper 2023-24

New Paper pattern for Sample Paper Computer Science Class 12 Session 2023-24

For the academic year 2023-24, CBSE has changed the paper pattern and assessment scheme via circular Acad-45/2023 dated 06.04.2023. The Board is introducing changes to Examination and Assessment practices to align assessment to Competency Focused Education, with a greater number of Competency Based Questions or questions that assess the application of concepts in real-life situations.

So let us review the previous year as well as the current year’s assessment and evaluation practices to be followed by the board.
