    CBSE Board exam: Biology paper analysis

    Biology 2023 CBSE paper was moderately challenging for average students but who could handle the Section-A will get good grades.

    Few MCQ's ( Section A) & Case study (Section D) were a bit tricky & time consuming as questions were to test analytical skills. Assertion-Reason (Section A) was confusing. However Section E (5 markers) was NCERT based. Section C & D questions (2 and 3 markers) were balanced.

    The paper was strictly as per the Syllabus with a mix of questions based on application & problem solving.

    Overall the Biology paper was balanced and gave students a fair chance to demonstrate their knowledge and problem solving skills.
