Why is the MP Board 12th Blueprint important and how it helps in preparation?

It is important that Class 12th students should thoroughly see the MP Board New Blueprint 2020. When we say this, we do have valid reasons stating the importance of the marking scheme/blueprint provided by the board. 

Firstly, because the blueprint shows the scale of importance of every topic in a subject. As we mentioned before, the MP Board Blueprint 2020 for class 12th has a detailed marks distribution of every topic. It also shows what type of question will be asked for a specific topic and what marks will it carry. 

Say, the English (General) Grammar section will be of 10 marks divided into two types: 

  • 5 Objective type questions (each of 1 mark),
  • 5 Do as directed type questions (each of 1 mark).

Secondly, you can prepare a better study plan and time-table and cover the complete syllabus by referencing the MP Board Blueprint 2020 for class 12.

Thirdly, you can improve your MP Board Exam preparation by the following these tips:  

  • See the MP Board New Blueprint 2020 and cover the topics which have more marks weightage. 
  • Practice questions and prepare strategically. If a topic has only one mark questions, then learn accordingly, and if a topic has higher marks for long answer questions, give more attention to it.
  • Cover topics with fewer marks in the last.

When you will practice the last year papers, you will find that the MP Board 2020 for Class 12th is followed in it.
