Chapter-wise Distribution of Marks




Number of Questions per Chapter

The chapter ‘Introduction to Trigonometry’ had the highest marks and number of questions asked, followed by ‘Coordinate geometry’, ‘Real numbers’ and ‘Polynomials’. ‘Probability’ and Triangles had the least number of questions asked: two case-based questions, one from Polynomials and the other from Coordinate geometry.

According to some students, the paper was tricky, time-consuming, and was challenging to complete the paper within time. Teachers too agreed with the time-consuming part, but according to the difficulty wise it was a balanced paper, and a significant weightage provided to chapters that have a continuation in term 2. Overall, the Maths paper was lengthy, with some questions requiring more time to solve.

Nevertheless, it is now time to focus on the following paper, and everyone at TopperLearning wishes students all the very best! For more paper reviews and exam updates, stay tuned.
