Students, in general, were very happy with the Chemistry paper. A student from Bal Bharti, Navi Mumbai said, “The paper was from NCERT and was easier than expected.” She further added that she is expecting above 65 in Chemistry paper.
Students could also complete their paper on time, as the paper wasn’t lengthy at all. Almost all the students we spoke to could complete the paper on time. Many students also said that many questions from the paper were from past year board papers. Many numericals that appeared in the exams were directly asked from NCERT. Section D was a bit lengthy and section C was a bit tricky.
Tips for next year students to ace their CBSE Class 12 Chemistry Board exam:
- Solve last 10 year boards question paper properly. There is a huge chance of similar questions coming in your board exam paper.
- In last 3 months, solve NCERT twice. Treat it as your bible.
- Study chemistry throughout the year.
- Practice numerical from NCERT. Do examples properly.
- Do organic chemistry properly. Last year many difficult questions were asked from organic chemistry.
- During last 1 month practicing part year boards paper and CBSE sample papers.
Chapter wise Marks distribution of the paper is as follows:
