CBSE Class 12 Physics 2022 Question Paper Review
Students have called the paper ‘moderately tough’ and lengthy. “There were a lot of numerical questions and the choices were also very limited in these. Section B was very tough,” shared Digvijay, a class 12 student. Another student, Amol had similar reaction. “I wont get full marks but am hoping to get 35 questions right,” he shared.
Experts who have reviewed the paper have called it moderately tough. “There are three sections. Section A is fairly easy and students had to do 20 questions, so it would be easy to pass in the paper. But if students are aiming for above 80 per cent, then the paper gets tricky. Section B and C is primarily numerical and slightly tougher. An average student ought to get 30 out of 45 questions correct so about 65% marks,” shared Dr. Singh, a senior Physics teacher with a reputed school of Delhi.
Explaining the marking scheme, Dr. Singh further elaborates. “Students have to attempt 45 for a total of 35 marks and there is a round up policy for marking. So effectively a student would get 0.77 marks for each correct answer. To calculate your marks, simply multiple the number of correct answers with 0.77 and then do a simple round up to the next whole number. So a student who gets 30 questions right would get 23.1 marks, rounded up so 24 marks.”
