Chapter-wise Distribution of Marks for History

This year, the chapter-wise distribution of marks was according to the usual pattern.

Chapter-wise Distribution of Marks for Political Science

 

In Political Science, the weightage of marks for the chapter ‘Political Parties’ was slightly increased.

Social Science Paper I was a mixed bag of questions. Questions in the History section were of medium level. Some questions were easy, while some were difficult. Students who had studied hard throughout the year will be able to score well in the History section of the paper.

The Political Science section was easy because all questions were asked from textbook exercises. Students who had studied the answers to all their textbook exercise questions will be extremely happy as their preparation would have been fruitful, enabling them to score full marks in this section.
