CBSE Class 12 Physics Exam Analysis: Students reaction

The Class 12th Physics Board exam brought its fair share of challenges for students. Many felt that the exam leaned towards the stricter side, with time-consuming Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) that involved intricate calculations. The assertion-reason questions added difficulty, drawing from NCERT statements and proving tricky for many. The subjective part of the exam primarily focused on theory questions, shaping an overall emphasis on theoretical aspects. Despite this, the numerical problems demanded non-trivial and lengthy calculations, presenting a separate set of challenges for the students.

CBSE 12th Physics Paper Analysis: Bag of challenges

Ms. Alka Kapur Principal, Modern Public School, Shalimar Bagh said,  "The Class 12th Physics Board exam was a mixed bag of challenges and surprises for students. The paper presented a variety of questions, with some being tough and tricky while others were more straightforward. A notable concern was the length of the paper, making it a time-consuming task for students. Sections C & D particularly stood out as tricky, demanding more logical thinking and competency-based solutions. This approach added an extra layer of complexity for the students. The overall exam could have been more student-friendly than one might hope. As teachers, we must acknowledge these observations and use them as valuable insights to help our students better prepare for future exams."

CBSE Class 12 Exam 2024: Calculation of Percentage

The calculation criteria says that no overall division/distinction/aggregate shall be awarded. If a Class 12 student has over five subjects, then to determine the best five subjects may be taken by the admitting institution or employer. The board does not calculate/declare/inform the percentage of marks. If the percentage of marks is required for higher education or in employment the calculation if any, may be done by the admitting institution or employer.

CBSE 12th Physics Paper Analysis: Moderate to difficult paper

As per Pravindra Chaudhary, HOD-Physics, Bhai Parmanand Vidya Mandir, Section A- Objective questions (MCQ’s) were mostly tricky to test the critical thinking skills of the Student. Assertion reason questions were more analytical and understanding based so that the student can evaluate them for truthiness.

Section B – Questions were remembering and Knowledge based.

Section C- Some Questions were direct knowledge based and rest of them were slightly tricky and application based.

Section D- This section contained case based questions which were easy evaluation based numericals that really help the student to develop critical thinking and problem solving skills. It helped students to apply the knowledge of Physics to practical scenarios.

Section E –This section had a mixture of remembering and evaluation-based questions which were moderately easy.

Paper was overall slightly lengthy and can be considered on moderate to difficult levels. Numericals were not directly from the NCERT book which brings a slight disappointment to the students about the relevance of the NCERT book. 

In summary, the CBSE Class 12th Physics exam provided a comprehensive assessment of student’s in-depth knowledge and deeper understanding of the subject along with applying Physics concepts to real world understanding. The paper emphasized more on conceptual understanding over rote learning.

CBSE 12th Physics Paper Analysis 2024

Beena B. Nair, Executive Editor, MTG Learning Media shared her analysis, as per her, The paper has five sections, i.e., Section A – MCQs and A & R (1 mark), Section B – Very Short Answer Type Questions (2 marks), Section C – Short Answer Type Questions (3 marks), Section D – Case- Based/Data-Based Questions (4 marks) and Section E – Long Answer Type Questions (5 Marks). However, it was mistakenly mentioned in the general instructions of the paper that Section D contains LA type questions and Section E contains Case-based questions. The paper was moderate and well-balanced. The paper adhered to the prescribed curriculum, providing a fair assessment of the students’ preparedness. Standard qualities of numerical problems were asked to test the analytical ability of students.

  • Section A had MCQs that required logical thinking while Assertion and Reason type questions could be found from NCERT textbook lines.
  • Section B and Section C had moderate level questions that required critical thinking to answer.
  • Section D had application-based and competency-based questions.
  • Section E was theoretical and conceptual that could be solved by students having in depth knowledge of the textbook.
  • The overall question paper was moderate, with a combination of remembering, understanding and analytical skills questions.
