Are you worried about how to prepare for OTBA? Anxious about the nature of questions that will be included? Help is at hand right here at Meritnation. In 2013, the Central Board of Secondary Education had declared that it will launch an Open Book Assessment for students of classes 9 and 11 from March 2014. Many of you mailed us your queries regarding this. We decided to bring to you a feature that will ease your anxiety regarding the preparations for this new assessment module.
With exams round the corner, Meritnation has introduced the Open Text -Based Assessment (OTBA) preparation feature to help boost your preparation levels. This feature is for students in classes IX and XI under CBSE board. This feature is aimed to help you put your best foot forward in the OTBA section. Now you can practice with 8-10 sample tests for each of the two themes as spelt out by CBSE. Designed strictly as per the CBSE samples, the sample papers under Meritnation’s OTBA feature cover all possible types of questions. Class IX students can practice for OTBA using sample papers for Science, Social Science, Maths & English, while class XI students have OTBA sample papers from Biology and Economics to practice.
A student attempting the OTBA section needs to be thorough with not only the basics of a concept, but also needs to learn how to apply all that he has learnt so far to solve the given problem.
To access the OTBA sample papers on the website simply log on to the website. The OTBA sample papers will be visible under the ‘Tests’ dropdown. As a free user you can view 2 sample test papers for each theme, while a paid subscription entitles you access to all the sample OTBA papers for your class.
So what are you waiting for? Check it out now!
All the best
