  1. so confusing..can get relieved only after coming at least one model paper in full.


  3. is this just for Andhra?any info about telangana?

    1. yes andhra paper pattern is different from that of telangana

  4. These SCERT people not taking Telugu medium students in to consideration.

  5. Nice pattern to improve English. But, authorities must train the Examiners before evaluating Paper II lest student should be given a room for losing their competencies. Conventional Questions should not be asked to improvise the present pattern

  6. Authorities must be considered in these so as to eschew protest due to the confusion by the teachers and the students.
    1. Evaluation sheets must be sent to the teachers concerned to follow the steps while evaluating the papers and follow the same at Annual Exams or else there may be discrepancies emerged at the exams which inturn resulted to protests against the pattern.
    2. Grammar topics are not particularly mentioned in this pattern. So, chapters should be clearly mentioned better for wiping out the tension and time by the teachers for teaching and for learning by the students. Ex :Tenses, Degrees of Comparison, etc otherwise panic may be hovered to cover all the topics.
    3. Conventional questions should not be asked in the Exams wherein put to miss the opportunity for constructing of sentences.

    The teachers are not to be put in dilemma of what and how to teach sans the clear pattern.

  7. For Telugu medium students paper - II pattern is difficult, Instead of story building questions comprehensive passages are suggestableas in old pattern
