In fact, statements were directly picked from the NCERT textbook. Questions were straightforward and easy to comprehend. There was one controversial question with more than one correct answer. Overall, the Chemistry section was not lengthy and students should have completed this part in 40-45 minutes. With minimalistic calculations, an average student should have been able to attempt approximately 40 questions with ease, while others would have been able to attempt a minimum of 44 questions.
The Botany part was of high difficulty level in comparison to previous years. While 25 questions were tested from the class 11 syllabus, 18 questions were from the class 12 syllabus. There were two controversial questions with more than one correct answer. Although the majority of questions were within the prescribed syllabus and based on the NCERT textbook, two questions were beyond the NCERT. The questions were conceptual in nature and required great conceptual and application-based understanding. There were also a few fact-based questions. Plant Physiology dominated with nine questions followed by Ecology and Genetics with seven questions each. Overall, the Botany part was not lengthy and should have been completed in the stipulated time period.
The Zoology section was of moderate difficulty level with a few exceptions. Some questions were tricky and lost in the terminology. A couple of terms were also beyond the NCERT domain. The questions were multi-conceptual in nature and required incisive thinking and precision on the part of students. While two questions tested linguistic prowess, others required comprehension, application and synthesis to interpret the questions. Human Physiology dominated with 12 questions followed by Animal Husbandry & Biotechnology with 10 questions and Biomolecules with 6 questions.
