SCERT First Question Bank 2011 for Classes 5 - 7 - All Subjects

Class V


Class VI


Class VII


SCERT published a question bank in August 2011 and uploaded it in their website. Schools were allowed to download it with a secret user name and password and conduct the First Term Exams that year. During 2012-2013 academic year English Blog had published it and more than 75000 people downloaded and made use of it. Some subjects were missing in that package and English Blog is republishing it including the missing ones.
