Following are model questions for SSC Half Yearly Examinations being conducted in Andhra Pradesh. AP State Board students can use these model questions for practice and get good marks. Mathematics is considered as highly scoring and also a difficult subject. Practicing more model papers and model questions will help in understanding the subject. These questions are for the preliminary understanding of the students only. See questions here:
