A total of 1.5 minutes per question has been suggested by the government rounding it to 18 minutes for this section. This will be followed by eight very short answers of two marks each (16 per cent) counting to 24 minutes for solving the said section.
Followed by eight questions for which students will have to write short answers for four marks each (32 per cent). Students can dedicate 48 minutes to this section. This will be followed by the last section of five essay questions of eight marks each (40 per cent). A total of one hour can be used by the students to write this last section. This way the students will have to answer 33 questions for 100 marks for each subject in two hours and 30 minutes (150 minutes). The paper pattern will be similar to the previous year for the two papers of General Science.
