Revised distribution of marks for Class X Social Science syllabus 2008

CBSE has decided to evaluate Disaster Management in Social Science of class X through Projects and Assignments only from the current academic session 2008-09 and the Board Examination 2009.

Since the theory paper in Social Science will not contain any questions from Unit 5 on Disaster Management., the revised distribution of 80 marks over the four units of Social Science syllabus for Class X will be as follows :-


Unit Subject Marks
1 History 22 marks (20+2 marks for map question)
2 Geography 22 marks (18 + 4 marks for map question)
3 Political Science 18 marks
4 Economics 18 marks


It may also be kindly noted that the Board’s question paper in Social Science, Class X, will now have 29 questions instead of 30 question earlier.

There will be only one map question consisting 6 items {2 items for History ( 2 marks) and 4 items for Geography ( 4 marks)}.The map question will have a choice in which either all the six items will be for identification or for location and labelling.

The revised sample question paper based on the changed pattern will be put up on the Board’s website www.cbse.nic.in shortly.
