According to the circular dated May 31, the CBSE has revealed that nearly 20 percent questions in a paper will be asked from case studies or text material provided to the students four months in advance.
The OTBA concept will be applicable to all subjects for class IX and only biology, geography & economics for class XI. This concept will help to instill analytical and theoretical skills in the students, thus discouraging memorization.
