The Mathematics paper overall was slightly on the difficult side. There were seven to eight lengthy questions, but a few questions were straightforward as well. Questions were asked from all chapters.
In Chemistry, almost equal weightage of Physical, Organic and Inorganic Chemistry was there. Paper has average difficulty level. No question was asked from the topics of Structure of atom, d & f-block, Aldehyde Ketone, s-block, Polymer & Surface Chemistry.
Surprisingly, Physics was the toughest paper among the three. The questions were a mix of theory based and calculation. This section was not lengthy. There were 17 questions from 12th standard syllabus and 13 questions from 11th standard syllabus. This section had 4 difficult questions, 20 moderate questions and 6 easy questions. Initial assessment fond that none of the options of Q.6 of set B were correct. The question was based on Pulley where minimum mass was to be ascertained.
So be positive and hope for the best results.
Be happy and always smiling.
