‘Consequent upon the feedback received from the various stakeholders and subsequent deliberation in the meetings of Committee of Courses of the Board and the subject experts the following changes have been made in Section-A-Reading of the Question Paper for English-Core, Class-XII for the session 2018-19’ read the official notification released by CBSE.
