The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on March 13, 2023 conducted Physical Education (PE) Board exam. Quite a large number of students opt for PE as the sixth subject. This is because it is an easy and scoring subject. The PE question paper had a total of 37 questions for 70 marks. Students were required to complete the paper in a duration of three hours – from 10:30 am to 1:30 pm.

The question paper had five sections:

According to Ashok Kumar, Physical Education teacher at Apeejay School, Charkhi Dadri said that this year’s PE question paper was of average difficulty. “There were a few questions that the students found to be tough. However, the paper on the whole was creative and innovative. It covered all aspects of the theory and provided the students a great chance to know and understand different aspects of the subject,” Kumar opined.

Adding that Section B was the easiest and D the toughest, the PE teacher gave the following low down of the question paper:
