This occurs, notwithstanding the fact that the questions are the same, the answers also the same!! What is more unlike some of the entrance examinations, largely speaking, the Central Board Question Papers have not been extremely difficult. All the same the anxiety levels have not come down. Rather they have increased to the extent that we have lost some precious young lives because of this.
All this boils down to the method of preparation that students adopt to tackle the Board Examinations. While nothing in the world can compare with regular study and revision throughout the year, the preparation that you do in the last few months leading to the Board Examinations do matter a lot in the ultimate analysis.
