a)    Syllabus and design of the Examination Question Papers in different subjects for Classes IX and X Summative Assessment(s) will be the same as circulated by the Board.

b)   As was done earlier, the Summative Assessment-I will be in the form of a pen and paper test conducted by the schools themselves.

c)    In order to ensure standards, the Question Paper Bank in different subjects would be sent by the Boards so as to reach the schools well in time.
