Analysis of paper 2

Maximum marks: 180 & duration: 3 hrs

The Paper had (54) questions in total.

The Paper-1 had (03) three parts- Physics, Chemistry & Mathematics.

Maximum marks for each part was 60.

In each part there are three sections- Sec-1(Max. Marks-24), Sec-2 (Max. Marks-24) & Sec-3 (Max. marks-12)

Sec-1 had six questions with four options in which one or more than one options were correct. Marking scheme in this section is +4 in case all options are correct, +1 for each correct response, 0 marks for no response and -2 for all other cases. Maximum marks for this section was 24.

Sec-2 had eight questions with correct response being a numerical value. For each question, the correct numerical value was to be rounded off to second decimal place. (E.g: 6.25,7.00,-127.30). The marking scheme was +3 for the correct response and 0 marks in all other cases. Maximum marks for this section was 24.

Sec-3 had four questions. Each question had two matching list-I and List-II. Only one of the four options correspond to the correct matching. Marking scheme in this section is +3 if the correct option is marked, 0 marks if none of the options is marked and -1 in all other cases. Maximum marks for this section was 12.
