After the Term 1 Examination CBSE released an answer key giving the students an exact answer to what they scored, before the result was out. With the answer key, it gets easier for students to realize where they lacked behind and understand what they need to improve.
CBSE follows a stepwise approach when it comes to marking, especially in subjects where the answers need to be solved and not remembered. Hence a set of answer keys is already prepared for the examiners to check the answer sheets.
After the board exams, the answer key is then made publicly available for students to analyze their performance.
The CBSE answer key is like a guide to what your answer should revolve around. The subjective and theoretical questions need not be word to word similar, but the core of the answer should match to the answer key, in order to fetch marks.
