CBSE Class 12 English Core Previous Year Papers

English Board Papers include three sections - Reading, Writing, and Literature. Unlike the Reading section, the Writing and Literature sections are comprehensive and require lengthy answers. Despite this fact, English is a subject that needs a lot of practice. This is why we have brought the complete collection of Previous Year Papers, Marking Scheme Solutions, and Topper Answer Sheets for teachers and students.

Teachers can use these resources for Class 12 English Core syllabus to provide new and different practice questions to the students. On the other hand, the students can use them to improve their paper-attempting skills.
