Pattern of paper
Paper II pattern was little different from the last year. Total questions asked 54 in PCM so 18 questions in each subject
Type of question asked : 18 per subject
1. Integer type of question- 6 Que ( with negative marking )
2. Multi- correct answer -6 Que ( with negative marking )
3. Numerical value type -6 Que ( answer up to decimal without negative marking)
Overall paper was difficult & calculative due to pattern change compare to last year.
Subject wise feedback
Physics was calculative and lengthy but covered most of syllabus as expected. Class XI & XII syllabus almost equal in overall paper. Electromagnetism, heat & thermodynamics & mechanics covering major portion.
Paper II of Chemistry was easy to moderate but calculative. Physical & Organic chemistry portion was higher.
Evening maths paper was Moderate to difficult and calculative as expected. Paper had questions from the syllabus and multi-correct type of questions consumed time due to calculations.
