Part-II- Chemistry had a total of 30* questions – Sec-I had 20 multiple choice questions with single correct answers and Sec-II had 10 numerical based questions of which only 5 were to be attempted. Marking scheme for multiple choice questions was +4 for correct answer, -1 for wrong answer, 0 if not attempted. Marking scheme for numerical based questions was +4 for correct answer, -1 for wrong answer and 0 in all other cases. The total marks for this section were 100.

Part III- Mathematics had a total of 30* questions – Sec-I had 20 multiple choice questions with single correct answers and Sec-II had 10 numerical based questions out of which only 5 were to be attempted. Marking scheme for multiple choice questions was +4 for correct answer, -1 for wrong answer, 0 if not attempted.

(4) Level of difficulty as per feedback from students on 24 January 2023 (Foreign Session).

Mathematics – Moderate level. Questions were asked from all chapters with emphasis on Algebra and Calculus chapters. Questions asked from Determinants, 3D Geometry, Vectors, Permutation and Combination, Probability, Binomial Theorem, Complex Numbers, Functions, Limits and Continuity, Definite Integrals, Curves, Parabola, Ellipse and Circle. Numerical section had long calculations. A few questions in MCQs were said to be long.

Physics – Easy. Questions asked from Electrostatics, Magnetism, Current Electricity and Modern Physics, EM Waves, Laws of Motion, Semiconductors, Kinetics, Heat and Thermodynamics. Numerical based questions were easy. A few fact-based questions from NCERT Class XII were also asked.

Chemistry – Easy to moderate level. Organic and inorganic chemistry questions were directly from NCERT books. Numerical based questions were mostly from physical chemistry. Questions asked from Aldehydes and Ketones, Amines, Co-ordination Compounds, Environmental Chemistry, Ionic Equilibrium. Some questions from organic chemistry were reported as slightly difficult.

Depending on the difficulty setting – Mathematics was moderate, Chemistry was moderately easy, while Physics was easy. According to the students, overall this paper was of medium level.
