CBSE Class 12 Boards maths paper: Which section was easy? Here’s the breakup

When compared to last year’s exam, the CBSE Class 12 Board question paper this time is more focused around the NCERT Book

So, the verdict is out. The mathematics paper for the CBSE Class 12 Board exam is lengthy and after taking at set three I feel it is largely ‘medium’ (which I translate as not too easy or too difficult).

The overall design of the question paper is average as it contains five easy-level, 17 medium-level and seven difficult-level questions.(HT Photo for representational purpose/Mujeeb Faruqui)

The overall design of the question paper is average as it contains five easy-level, 17 medium-level and seven difficult-level questions. When compared to last year’s exam, the question paper this time is more focused around the NCERT Book. Students can score 90-plus easily if they have gone through the NCERT book thoroughly, though scoring 100 could be a challenge as some questions have been reframed and require more solving time. Moreover, one question has some degree of ambiguity.

I feel the one-mark questions on 3D geometry and definite integration were easy. The one-mark and four-mark questions on probability were tough.

The two mark questions on 3-D Geometry and AOD were of medium to easy levels. Matrix was of medium level as was differentiation.

Where the four-mark questions were concerned, vectors were medium. Definite integration was difficult,determinants and inverse trigonomentry were of medium level.

Examiners have been a little tough this time with the highest scoring questions - the six-mark ones. Only one question on matrices I feel was easy. The difficult ones were 3-D Geometry, relations and functions and AOD. Applications of integration and differential equations were of medium level.

When compared to last year’s exam, the question paper this time is more focused around NCERT Book.

All said and done, I don’t think this was too difficult a paper - and hope you have done well. Best wishes!
