(4) The difficulty level as per feedback from students on 29th Jan 2024 (Afternoon Session).

Mathematics – Moderate. Weightage was given to chapters of Algebra and Calculus. Questions from Straight Lines, Circle in Coordinate Geometry. In Calculus, questions are asked from Functions, Differential Equations, Application of Derivatives, and Definite Integral. In Algebra, questions asked from Complex Number, Progressions-2 ques, Permutation & Combination, Binomial Theorem, Statistics, Matrices & Determinants, Probability & Vector-2 ques, 3D Geometry. Few MCQs & numerical-based questions had lengthy calculations and were Tricky.

Physics – Easy . Questions were asked in almost all chapters. Some good questions from chapters on Kinematics, Laws of Motion, Work Power & Energy, Heat & Thermodynamics, Sound & waves, Rotational Motion, Optics, Current Electricity, Modern Physics, Atoms & Nuclei. Numerical-based questions were Easy. Physics was balanced and Easy.

Chemistry - Easy to Moderate. Inorganic & Organic Chemistry had more questions as compared to Physical Chemistry. Questions asked from GOC, Alcohols, Ether & Phenols, Amines, Aldehydes & Ketones, Biomolecules, Aryl & Alkyl Halides mixed concept questions, Physical Chemistry had questions from Mole Concept, Electrochemistry & Chemical Equilibrium. Inorganic Chemistry had questions from d-block elements, Coordination Compounds & Chemical Bonding. Some NCERT fact-based questions were asked which made it easy for students.

(5) In terms of order of Difficulty – Overall, this paper was of Easy to Moderate level as per students in all three subjects. Few Students felt it was like the 27th Jan Morning Shift Paper.
