Time : 3 hours
Questions 01 through 25 (25 questions) are 1mark questions and questions 26 through 55 (30
questions) are 2mark questions.
7. The question pairs (48, 49) and (50, 51) are the common data questions. The question
pairs (52, 53) and (54, 55) are questions with linked answers. The answer to the second
question of the linked question pairs will depend on the answer to the first question of the
pair. If the first question in the linked pair is wrongly answered or is un attempted, then
the answer to the second question in the pair will not be evaluated.
8. Questions 56 through 60 (5 questions) are 1mark questions and questions 61 through 65
(5 questions) are 2mark questions.
9. Unattempted questions will result in zero mark and wrong answers will result in Negative
Marks. For Q1 to Q25 and Q56 to Q60, 0.33 mark will be deducted for each wrong answer. For
Q26 to Q51, Q61 to Q65, 0.66 mark will be deducted for each wrong answer. The question pairs
(Q.52, Q.53), and (Q.54, Q55) are questions with linked answers. There will be negative marks
only for wrong answer to the first question of the linked answer question pair, i.e. for Q.52 and
Q.54, 0.66 mark will be deducted for each wrong answer. There is no negative marking for Q.53
and Q.55.
10. Calculator is allowed whereas charts, graph sheets or tables are NOT allowed in the examination
hall.
11. Cell / Mobile phones or any other electronic gadgets are prohibited in the examination hall.
12. Rough work can be done on the question paper itself. Additional blank pages are given at the end
of the question paper for rough work.
