CBSE 2010 Class Xllth English Core Sample Papers


Guys, never ever take English examination for granted, it’s a subject which can really harm you aggregate percentage. No matter how well you do in physics, chemistry or mathematics, you have to perform equally well in English also to get good marks in the board examinations. With the increasing level of competition, even a slight mistake can prove fatal. Take it like this, when hindi is your mother tongue, you still have to give quite some time to it, English is not your mother tongue so you have to take it seriously. Good luck, all the best and prepare well.
