Everyone wants to pass exam – especially when it comes to Board Exams. Many enjoyed the entire year in company with friends from the class and outside. Now the exam fever is on and some are finding it difficult to get pass marks and Physics is the one subject many find it difficult to mug up in a hurry. So, here we have come up with a sure shot method to succeed. If you are ready to work hard, you can score more than 50% marks with the method we suggest. But you should strictly follow the schedule.

# Step #1

### Make a strong determination and say aloud “I will Pass Exam”

Your decision and determination will work more than anyone else’s. The first step towards to success is to believe that you can do it and be ready to work for it irrespective of the hardships and troubles you may face during the course. Put a reminder at a visible place so that you’re always reminded of your decision to pass exam. Go to next page

## COLLECTION OF DIAGRAMS FROM CURRENT ELECTRICITY FOR CBSE PHYSICS CLASS XII

There are a lot of circuit diagrams and other diagrams to be practised from the chapter current electricity. The essential diagrams are prepared in the following file for ready use. You may take a printout of the file for practice.

When you draw the diagram, don’t draw freehand diagrams. Use geometrical instruments and pencil. The diagram should be neat and perfect. At the same time, you should not be consuming lot of time in perfecting the diagrams at the cost of answers to other questions.

In order to draw diagrams perfectly consuming very less time, it is necessary to practise all the diagrams well in advance. the file given below is a collection of all diagrams from the chapter current electricity as per the NCERT textbook.

## CBSE Sample Paper & Marking Scheme for Class Xii Physics 2016 – Free Download

CBSE published sample question papers for all subject for the year 2012. You can download the CBSE  Sample paper in Physics and the marking scheme for class Xii 2016 here.

## Why Practice CBSE Sample Papers and Marking Scheme?

Practising the sample question paper and the Marking Scheme will give you an idea of the type of questions  in the Board Examination 2016. It also gives an insight into “How the value points are allotted marks?” . This helps you to plan well for the exam and get maximum marks by limiting the extend of the answer and get maximum marks and save time.

The Sample Question Papers submitted by CBSE officially is considered very important. CBSE use to publish a set of sample papers every year which essentially reminds every student the level of preparation expected from each. It was a common practice in every school to grab copies of the sample papers published by CBSE and every teacher used to make sure that all the students compulsorily solve all the questions of the CBSE Sample Papers. Without the CBSE sample papers and previous question papers, many students simply learn by rot a few questions and answers exhibiting a dismal performance in the Board Exam. We don’t you to be a poor performer. Keep it a point that you practise all the questions from the CBSE sample paper.

## COLLECTION OF DIAGRAMS FROM ELECTROSTATICS FOR CBSE PHYSICS CLASS XII

Practising the diagrams is necessary to get good marks. The aim of every student must be to score the maximum marks and not to lose even a single mark through silly carelessness. So, it is important to practice well to draw the diagrams as per the NCERT text book.

We are planning to publish a series of posts  for all the diagrams as may be required for the AISSCE Class Xii Physics examination. You can view these online or may download and take a print.

Wish you all the best.

## Questions asked in Physics Viva Voce for Class 12 Physics Practical

Q1. Why are the resistances used in a resistance box is like 1,2,2,5,10,20,20,50,100,200,200,500,1000,2000,2000,5000 etc?

Ans: In this arrangement all natural numbers upto 10000 ohms (and above) can be realized.

1, 2, 2+1=3,2+2=4,5,5+1=6,5+2=7,5+2+1=8,5+2+2=9 etc

Try it yourself to get all numbers from 1 to 10000

Q2. Why wire is double folded in resistance box?

Ans: The resistance wires in resistance box and in standard resistances are double folded and then coiled so as to nullify the effect inductance. When double folded and coiled, in one half the current will be clockwise and in next half the current will be anticlockwise. Therefore, the magnetic induction created by one half will be cancelled by the other half.

Q3. we make coil of wire when finding resistance of wire through metre bridge ?

Ans: This is not correct. If it is to be coiled, it should be done as in Q1.

Normally the wire is stretched on a half meter scale and fixed with terminals (or arranged in some other manner)

If you feel that the wire need to be coiled, then take  care to avoid the magnetic effect.

## CBSE Class XI Results show sharp decline since the introduction of CCE

The results of Class XI is shamefully low since the introduction of CCE in classes up to class X. The CCE ensures pass of every student. It is further emphasized that the student should get admission in the same school. This criteria make the students less responsible and they get good percentage in class X without much knowledge expected of that level.

The students mainly get good grades in formative assessments in which most of the activities are performed in groups. Almost all students of the group are getting almost identical marks and grades. So, even a weak student gets good grades because he is part of the group. These grades scored by him ensures his admission to science group in class XI. Only when the result of Class XI comes he realizes that he is not fit for the science group (or any other group he has chosen).

The teachers of class XI are more worried where the administration wants 100% result out of these students with little aptitude towards the subject. It is high time that the system be reviewed and ensure that only students with aptitude towards science steam come in Science group as well as other streams.

You responses in this regard are welcome. All students and teachers as well as parents are requested to take part in this discussion. Post your views and responses as comments to this post.

# What problems do you face in implementing CCE?

CCE Stands for Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation.

Many complain that there are various problems in proper implementation of CCE.

Let’s discuss and find problems and the possible remedies.

Teachers, students, educational administrators and parents are requested to participate and post their opinions, details of the problems and possible remedies.

A few problems identified are posted below.

• Lack of time: The teachers get around 35 to 409 minutes for a class and it is insufficient to meet the requirements of CCE
• Lack of infrastructure
• Student Pupil ratio

## CCE is more burden than earlier evaluation system

The newly introduced Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) by CBSE is more burburden for teachers as well as students. Instead of decreasing the load, it has increased it. The teachers are under more tension than the students, as they have to maintain more records and every time on full alert, monitoring, mentoring and all. Most of the evaluation taking place in most of the schools are unplanned or in some cases they do not take place at all.

The evidences of evaluation are often  “cooked” as and when required during school inspection or cross checking by CBSE. CBSE has highly formalised the formative evaluation and it is in practice defeating the purpose. The already overburdened teachers are further burdened by these. When it comes to supervision, the teachers are compelled to tell lies or produce false evidences and forged documents.

Why this injustice? What was wrong with the earlier system? NCF quotes that the earlier system was too much bookish and lacked a comprehensive approach.

OK

But, why to overhaul the already existing system which has produced so many successful personalities some of whom have formulated the new system too.

Further, the teachers handling current class 11 are complaining that the stuff is extremely difficult to handle. The stuff means the students who passes with high grades in current system of evaluation in class X. They don’t care what the teacher says, whether it be revising regularly, maintaining records or completing an assigned task in time.

As the students have not undergone a system of regular serious study under the shadow of CCE, the lack the fundamentals and still expect that it will be an easy cake walk and that they can score high marks without studying anything.

It is clear that the current CCE and its implementation has to be revised. Let the academic side be given prime importance and let the assignments and projects continue to be a part of the evaluation and be counted for promotion as was the case in Kendriya Vidyalayas.

The term Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation and the rigidity imposed by CBSE in the time frame and assessment plans and all defeats the purpose in most of the cases.

Opinions and further suggestions are invited from all.

CCE looks fantastic when looked from out side or in theory, but in practice, it flopped.
