-Revise the notes you have prepared as it is easy for you to understand.

-Do not learn anything new as it will only panic you, focus on what you know

-Take a look at the Sample papers uploaded by the board on its official website. You don't need to write, just read the questions and solve them in mind.

Meanwhile, CBSE is planning a pilot run of Open-Book Exams (OBE) in selected schools for classes 9 to 12 later this year. The idea was floated in the last governing body meeting of CBSE Board in December, 2023. Officials, however, said there is no plan to adopt the format in class 10 and 12 board exams. In an open-book exam, students are allowed to carry their notes, textbooks, or other study materials and refer to them during the exam. The pilot will be focused on assessing higher-order thinking skills, application, analysis, critical and creative thinking, and problem solving abilities. While the design, development, and review of Open Book Tests is proposed to be completed by June 2024, the pilot testing of the materials in schools is being planned in November-December 2024.

The CBSE had previously experimented with an Open Text-Based Assessment (OTBA) format for the year-end exams of Classes 9 and 11 for three years from 2014-15 to 2016-17, but it was scrapped based on negative feedback from stakeholders.
